I remember the stat about David Nalbandian and how he is one of a short list of players to make the semis or better at every Slam. With Djokovic now doing this, I'm curious about the other people on that list. Can anybody help? And did that just include active players?

Others have done it, but I think Djokovic is the youngest to do so.

Off the top of my head I know Agassi, Sampras, Courier, Nalbo, Lendl, and Fed have. I'm sure there's others though.

None of his draws were easy. In RG, he met Nadal in the SF. In Wimbledon and the USO there was a whole slew of difficult players.

Why do you delude yourself into believing Djokovic is just on a streak? He isn't. If there's anything about him that truly sets him apart from players with flashier games, it's his consistency (both within a match and across tournaments) and his mental strength.

He didn't beat Nadal to make it to the SF at RG, so why are you bringing this up?
