Checked: RG - USOpen 2010
RG 2011 - RG 2012

"Skipped": AO 2011 and Wimby 2012.

Apart from Fed (18 out of 19), who is near or better than Rafa in this regard?

yes that's the case I thought about : 11 out of 12 in 4 years, which makes it harder than in 3 years.

Not playing the Australian open was what all top-players apart from Australians were doing in that time.

Lendl was at 10 out of 12 between 1984 and 1987 (11 out of 13 with the US Open 1983) if you exclude the Australian open ... but the difference is that he did play the Australian open ;) :lol:
