The Grand Slams are usually dominated by the big name players, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have 26 Grand Slam titles between them, so it is very rare to see one of the absolute elite not win the tournament. The last time Federer, Nadal or Novak Djokovic did not win a Grand Slam was the US Open in 2009 with Juan Martin Del Potro.
