Who has most losses in finals in a row, and overall ?

Ok we Rog is on a great streaks of 23 finals in a row, but who is the choker, the one who was famous for losing finals ?
The first that comes to my mind is Lendl in GS, but it didn't last.
Some MTF tennis encyclopedias would have the answer ?

That's funny because the idea of the thread came as I was reading his bio: FINALIST (12): 1992--Lyon; 1993--Bolzano, Lyon, Monte Carlo, Toulouse, US Open; 1994--Long Island; 1996--Marseille, Zagreb; 1997--Wimbledon; 1998--London, Monte Carlo
12 finals lost and 5 titles, that's a 29% winning in finals :eek:
Hope Gasquet won't follow this path and won't perpetuate the long tradition of choking of French players (cf. Leconte in RG 88) :mad:

Pioline is the player who is the most referred to by commentators when they need someone to point at. another one who is bad in finals dont come to mind for me...

Pioline simply lost his 9 first finals in a row... had he won these finals, his record would look much different... :rolleyes:

Among the actual top players, I think Coria and Nalbandian who both had 5 losses in finals in a row.

Benneteau is 0-9, so that's pretty hard to match

Monfils is 4 from 19 (21%).

Finally a record Ferrer can aim for. Assuming his pre-final opponents at 250s and weak 500s keep choking, he should have no problem obliterating Benneteau's record (assuming 9 in a row is the record).
