Thanks! I have updated things for 2012, and the end of 2011.

#1 v. #2 finals occured at Australia and at Roland Garros, both Djokovic v. Nadal, while the #3 v. #4 final at Wimbledon was the first since 2003 in London to not feature a top 2 seed.

All top 4 seeds made back-to-back semifinals, at 2011 USO and 2012 AO, in fact this occurred at 3 of the last 4 at that point, stretching to 2011 RG. Both were the first time that had happened.

The 2012 US Open saw the 7th time that 7 top 8 seeds made the quarterfinals, and the first for the USO, making it the last of the slams to reach that milestone.

An update for the first three events of 2013.

The top 4 seeds all made the semifinals in Australia; this was the 15th time overall, and 4th in Australia. It also marked back-to-back years that the top 4 seeds all advanced that far.

Roland Garros saw a #3 vs. #4 final, a fairly rare occurance in GSs. It was the 56th final without a top 2 seed, and the 23rd such RG final.

Wimbledon's 1 vs. 2 final was the 13th for the event, and the 40th overall. Just 6 of the top 16 seeds made the last 16, the lowest number in four years, since RG 2008. Still, it's a long way from the Wimbledon record, set in 2002, when just 2 of the top 16 survived to their seeding.
