Wimbledon 2006, Irakli Labadze reached the fourth round. Wimbledon 2011 Lukasz Kubot did the same and Tomic reached the QF. And last year Brian Baker's 4R.

I am sure there are other examples.

None are recent, but only four qualifiers have made a GS SF in the open era:
Filip Dewulf(RG 97), Bob Giltinan (AO 77 Dec), Vladimir Voltchkov(W 00), John McEnroe (W 77).

No qualifier has ever made a GS final in the open era(fyi, this is even on the womens side, where two qualifiers have reached the SF : Christine Dorey(AO 78) and Alexandra Stevenson(W 99))

Default Re: best qualifiers in a grand slam draw?

yeh there's loads of examples of 4R/QF runs if we open it up to the Open era of course, and several SFs.

a couple more:

Gilles Muller - USO QF in 2008.
Thierry Champion - W QF in 1990.

also, going further back, John Marks didn't 'qualify', but he made the 1978 AO final ranked World No. 177.

and Mark Edmondson won the 1976 AO ranked World No. 212...

Had done it a long time ago.

Posted it in another thread a couple of months ago. It was just a matter of finding the thread.

John McEnroe is the only other male player to have achieved this(W 77)
In case you are interested, Christine Dorey(AO 78) and Alexandra Stevenson(W 99) are the only WTA players to do the same.

No qualifier(ATP or WTA) in the open era has ever reached a GS Final.

Goffin's 4th round as LL was very impressive.. does he hold the record amongst lucky losers??

Raonic, as a qualifier, made it to the fourth round of the AO in 2011 where he lost to Ferrer.

I don't know about grand slams, but LLs have won an ATP tournament several(~5) times.

lately there has been a lot of qualifiers make it to the 4th round. Tomic is the only one I can recall in the last decade or so who's made the QF
