True, but there seems to be a stats thread on here for just about everything else.

Well spotted. Stakhovsky won Zagreb as a lucky loser in 2008 before playing a GS main draw. Wonder how many other players have managed to do this.

Looks as though Tiago Fernandes is a front runner for a wild card into his debut GS after winning the junior title last year. Highest ranked players in the qualifying draw who have yet to play a GS are Joao Souza, Igor Sijsling, Konstantin Kravchuk, Jaroslav Popisil and Conor Niland. The latter two are both 29 years old and have never made a dent on the main tour, but neither had Stephane Robert before he reached the top 70ish last year at the same age.

I'll update highest rankings and the rest when the AO starts.
