I noticed the following:

1. Djokovic has won everytime he reached the SF. The only big tournament he missed was Madrid, and he wasn't there.
2. Murray only failed to reach the Final when he reaches the SF during Indian Wells, where he faced Djokovic. He was absent in Monte Carlo, and gave a W/O in Rome so all in all his wall has been Djokovic and his body during these events.
3. Federer surprisingly was able to get to two big Finals but that is in only two big events in which other events he didn't reach the Semis.
4. Nadal only has 2 SFs and that is in the first two Clay Masters (one of which is a Final). Other times, he wasn't able to reach the SF.
5. Berdych did well reaching 3 Semis but that seems to be his ceiling...he did have a Final in MC but he was kind of fortunate that Raonic had an injury.
6. Raonic even as consistent he is reaching QFs has only reached 2 SFs this year. Was absent in Rome.
7. Nishikori surprisingly has 1 SF. However, he was beaten on Clay by Djokovic.
8. Ferrer reached 1 SF and that is in Rome.
9. Wawrinka reached 2 SFs but no Finals.
10. Isner surprisingly has 1 SF in Miami while Monfils has 1 SF in Monte Carlo. Both are the only non-Top 10 players to reach it pre-RG.
11. Cilic is currently the only Top 10 player without a big event SF. The rest of the Top 10 except Raonic had reached an SF in one of the Clay tournaments and was absent in Rome and may be in doubt in RG IMO due to his injury.

I think this shows that Murray has more or less played the Nadal role of 2011 except he managed to make the AO final rather than only the QF and he hasn't had as good a clay season as Nadal had in 2011.

RG could be interesting with the potential Top 8 seeds year having an SF in the Clay Masters on their belt this year. Would be interesting to see if they would manage to get to the QFs. Could be a bit open RG. Monfils and Isner surely could be wildcards on this surface.

Has won the SF every time he reached it or you mean the tournament? He didn't win RG obviously.

Andy and Djokovic are the two best players when it comes to consistency. Who would have thought? That's likely to carry on for the rest of the year too.

Well it wasn't true now but with Djokovic reaching the Roland Garros SF and yet still lost it but it was during Rome.

Anyway, from the French big guys, it seems Simon is the only one left that hasn't reached the SF of one these tournaments, while Tsonga and Gasquet had reached the SF of RG and Wimbledon, respectively. Also each tournament has a "first timer" for the year (Monfils on MC, Isner on Miami, Tsonga in RG, Gasquet in Wimbledon, etc) so you may expect someone different to reach a big SF this year.
