Default Re: Losing against the eventual slam winner- An Open Era overview

The players who lost to Djokovic at the Australian Open 2013 (in brackets the number of times they lost to an eventual slam winner):

Code:
 
F:    Andy Murray          (9)
SF:   David Ferrer         (5)
QF:   Thomas Berdych       (5)
R16:  Stanislas Wawrinka   (1)
R32:  Radek Stepanek       (2)
R64:  Ryan Harrison        (1)
R128: Paul-Henri Mathieu   (5)
-Murray has lost to the eentual Australian Open winner 4 times in a row.
-Murray has now lost to the eventual winner of a slam in this decade 7 times (in 13 slams). Is Lendls eighties record (17) in play?
-Ferrer, Berdych and Mathieu now all have lost to the eventual winner 5 times. All obviously while being slamless themselves.
-Stepaneks two losses both happened in the third round.
-Mathieu joins the select club of players who lost twice to the eventual winner in the first round. The first time? Wimbledon 2005, against Federer.
