Default Re: The best players never to reach a Grand Slam final.

I don't know what "best" means, as it's so subjective, so I will use a numerical indicator - highest-ever rankings.

Talking about players from around the past ~10 years, we have these former or current top 10 players....

No. 2 Haas
No. 4 Henman, Bjorkman, Kiefer, Grosjean, Forget
No. 5 Novak
No. 6 Ferreira , N. Lapentti, Kucera
No. 9 Rosset, Srichaphan, Massu
No. 10 Gustafsson , Larsson, Mantilla

(Those are the ones I can remember)
