Losing to Monaco and Sousa in Finals is the most disgusting I ever heard

No problem lol. The thing is that all those players (or at least the active ones) should be in the OP because this list all over the thread isn't practical at all.

Kenneth Rosewall anyone...?

ffs really disappointed in this board sometime...

Wimbledon Finals
1954: l. to Jaroslav Drobny 13–11, 4–6, 6–2, 9–7
1956: l. to Lew Hoad 6–2, 4–6, 7–5, 6–4 (Rosewall latter stopped Hoad from winning the Grand slam in USO final)
1957-1967: Banned
1970: l. to Newcombe 5–7, 6–3, 6–2, 3–6, 6–1
1974: l. to Connors 6-1, 6-1, 6-4
For me, the saddest of all, but then, had he not been banned for 11 of his prime years, he would have won a few at least. He was a great grass court player, never the less.

I agree. I'll update the OP when I get some time.
Please do so. This is one of the most informative thread in MTF! Nice job for all who contributed :yeah:
Maybe the active one first in the head of the OP, and if you can put the retired one's (maybe in italic) below the active one's (so it's more readable)

Btw LOLing hard on your post #42 :haha:

Ferrer in Barcelona:

2012: Nadal 6-7(1), 5-7
2011: Nadal 2-6, 4-6
2009: Nadal 2-6, 5-7
2008: Nadal 1-6, 6-4, 1-6

[semi-finals in 2009 (Verdasco) 2007 (Nadal)]
Corrected to update poor Henry's entry of David Ferrer at Barcelona. :worship:

Despite losing in straight sets, Ferrer came very close in 2012.
He just got over excited in the key moments and hit shots that just landed out.
Nemesis Nadal was fortunate to win.

Edit: I just noticed this update ^ buried in Trollin Stone's post earlier. Sorry about that.

But I did find a possible one for Michael Chang, but don't know if you'll count it.

The Grand Slam Cup was an ITF event that ran from 1990-1999 and paid the highest prize money of any tournament in tennis. In late 1999, ITF and ATP announced that the tournament would be merged with the ATP Tour World Championship, and these eventually led to the current ATP World Tour Finals.
The remnant of the Grand Slam Cup can be seen in the rules today, via Grand Slam winners rule were if a GS winner is not in the top 8, but in the top 20, he will replace the #8 player as Gaston Gaudio replaced Agassi in 2004.


1991 Grand Slam Cup - David Wheaton: 5-7, 2-6, 4-6
1992 Grand Slam Cup - Michael Stich: 2-6, 3-6, 2-6
1995 ATP Tour World Championship - Boris Becker: 6-7(3), 0-6, 6-7(5)

Respectfully,
masterclass

Edited the OP with active players and tournaments mentioned in this thread. Will add in some of the more important ones involving inactive players as well.

Makes for an interesting list. The active players still always have a chance to light that cigar..

Wow, I didn't know that Raonic got bagelled by Kei in 2012, interesting. Surely must be the last time he got bagelled.

Great! Just a little correction, you forgot these 2 active players:

Jarkko Nieminen in Stockholm
2001: Schalken 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3
2006: Blake 6-4, 6-2
2011: Monfils 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 (also once RU in doubles)
Monfils joining the list in Doha: 3 times Runner-up: lost to Federer 3-6, 6-7(5) in 2006; to Tsonga 5-7, 3-6 in 2012; to Nadal 1-6, 7-6(5), 2-6 in 2014..
------------------------

Nope, he got bagelled also in 2013 by Nadal in Barcelona, the only other bagel he received was in 2011 by Llodra in Monte-Carlo (Raonic won 6-3, 0-6, 6-0), he got bagelled 2 times in Futures/Challengers earlier.

It hasn't. Only bagel in his matches since Barcelona 2013 was the one he gave Fognini in Cincy this year.

He also gave Blake one on USO 2012 and Volandri in AO 2012 and - most interestingly - both gave and received one from Llodra in Monte Carlo 2011. So he's at 4-3 for career bagels on the main tour.
