Was it MacEnroe in 1984? RG Finalist (lost to Lendl) and then winner at Queen's?

The man who played every week i.e. Kafelnikov did it in 1996 after winning RG getting to the finals against Kulti in Halle.

I'm trying to think who else could've done it. Borg never played Queen's so he didn't do it. Lendl played well at Queen's, but didn't do it. Andre didn't do it. Edberg didn't do it. Wilander didn't do it.

Even in the days when players played a lot more, not many players took on getting to an RG final and then playing the next week on grass. It's almost impossible to be successful in this situation.

Yup I believe it was Kafelnikov in 1996.
