Greatest finalist in a Grand Slam?
After losing an epic Grand Slam final, I was trying to think of a player like Lindsay who fought to the end of an important final match, and I could only think of a handful.
Including Lindsay's performance this past weekend, here is my list of some great Grand Slam finalists of the Open era.
Martina Navratilova: 1981 & 1985 U.S. Open, 1985 and 1987 French Open and 1994 Wimbledon.
Billie Jean King: 1970 Wimbledon.
Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario: 1995 Wimbledon and 1996 French Open.
Chris Evert: 1978 Wimbledon, 1981 Australian and 1984 U.S. Open
Gabriela Sabatini: 1991 Wimbledon
Evonne Goolagong: 1976 Wimbledon
Steffi Graf: 1989 and 1992 French Open.
There are tons more I am sure, just add yours to the list.
