I just noticed that from 2004 Wimbledon to 2010 Australion Open Roger won the GS or got beaten by the champion. This streak broke in 2010 RG with Soderling.

Notice: Since 2010 AO he only lost to the eventual champion three times, 2011 RG Final and 2011 AO and USO semifinal and won only one major. From 2012 whoever beat Federer at AO lost in the final, which is interesting cause he reached the SF three times.

So the 2004 Wimly to 2010 AO is a record? This is 23 times winning or losing to the eventual champion.

And losing to the eventual champion 12 times is a record?

Not hardly. Ivan Lendl lost to the eventual champion 23 times.

Guys can anyone confirm if this is a record? Or the runner ups if the case?
I am pretty sure that in the open era no one did this, but pre-open era?

EDIT:Djokovic overall lost to the eventual champion 14 times, maybe he can get closer to Lendl.

What do you want confirmed? The streak from 2004 to 2010? This is definitely a record streak as far as Open Era is concerned, never investigated this kind of thing pre-Open Era but it seems unlikely anyone should challenge the streak as it was uncommon to play all of them many years in a row.
