Jesse Witten is one such example - he has a career 2:9 record, 2 of the wins coming from R1 and R2 of the US Open in 2009 (he also won 3 Q matches). That is quite rare.

Are there any other players? I would think a low-ranked player who received an occasional WC for a GS and won a match or 2.

Maybe that Kokkinakis guy?

Kyrgios too. I don't think he won a match out of Aussie and Wimbledon.
Thanks :yeah:

Kyrgios is 7:9, 6 wins in Grand Slams (4 at Wimbledon, 1 at RG, 1 at AO) and 1 win at DC which is an ITF tournament, though.

Kokkinakis' only win is at the AO.

Does DC count? If not, then I think Dzumhur?

So then Dzumhur works...?
You are right. I meant to say "no ATP tour wins, only GS main draw wins". So, winning in DC is ok.

So, we have Witten, Sergeev, Kokkinakis, Kyrgios, Novikov, Dzumhur so far. The last 4 are likely bound to win at some other ATP tournaments rather than Grand Slams though.

And look who is the one that lost to him. Unbelievable. :lol:

Hum, yeah, just noticed he won a match in DC 2013. It counts for sure.

Another interesting questions would be "players with positive W-L ratio, despite having no wins at slams". Already know one: Victor Estrella, 35-19, almost every win at Davis Cup lower divisions, but it counts. :cool:

Yeah, that must be pretty rare too.

The Kyrgios one is rather incredible. 7!

Janowicz has been doing a great job at breaking in teenagers in big matches. Novikov, Coric, Jordan Thompson's near-win.
