Re: Losses in GS Finals.

we're talking open era here of course.
here are some you forgot, i think it makes up the complete list.

Huber and Zvereva reached a single final, MJ Fernandez and Mandlikova reached 3 finals - though of course one of them is a multiple slam champ and the other is arguably the best ever player not to win a slam.
Goologong lost alot of finals (i think she participated in 18 all in all, but don't forget alot of those AO victories included two tough and grueling matches from r1 to "champ") - but only 4 since 75.
Wendy Turnbull and Helena Sukova with three,
Mima Jausovec, Renata Tomanova, Andrea Jaeger and Sylvia Hanika with two
Dianne Fromholtz, Florenta Mihai, Betsy Nagelsen, Helen Gourlay, Pam Shriver
Sharon Walsh, Zina Garrison each with a single showing.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: Losses in GS Finals.

you might want to mark slam winners in a different colour to visualize the slam winners that obviously couldn't win 100% of the time, and those who we have to question thier mental abilities, or the era and competition they couldn't over-come.

I think I should better highlight the ones, who never won a slam.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.
