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

Since the Open Era began in 1968, tennis has seen its fair share of champions.
This thread is dedicated to all the players who lost against the players who went on to win a grand slam. From Richard Coulthard, who lost the R32 of the '68 Australian Open to Kei Nishikori, losing finalist at the US Open 2014, no less than 544 different players have been beaten by the eventual champ.

Here's a list with the players who fell to the eventual winner most often:
