Intresting are there more players for whom Slam/Masters was to be the last trophy or not? Pete and Marat are first whom I can recall. I don`t think there are many such players either.

Berlocq will win the grand slam next year and didn't win any title yet (excluding all the callengers he won, i'm talking ATP).

Chesknonov, Aguilera, Muster, Ivanisevic, Pernfors, Medvedev, Carretero (first and last), Korda, Costa, Krajicek, Piolone, Portas (first and last), Mantilla, Henman, and Ljubicic. That's all I got

to all who mentioned guys higher. I guess I was thinking about Slams in 1st turn, with Masters "field" is bigger for sure here.

P.S. How could I forgot about Ljubicic.
