Steffi Graf also lost 1R of Wimbledon. She was three time defending champion and had won five of the last six Wimbledons.

Do you mean in total, or just four in a row? If you mean total number of Slam finals lost, then no, she doesn't have the record. Not by a long shot.

I'm not sure about anyone else losing four Slam finals in a row.

ASV came close in 1995, losing three Slam finals in a row, but she (un)fortunately didn't reach the USO final.

If Martina wasn't such a brat when she was younger she could have made the record reaching the Wimby final in 1999 or the FO final in 2000.

I wouldn't be surprised. She continued her third set tiebreak loss from 2012 into this year's Sydney. SHE'S SO CONSISTENT WELCOME BACK JELENA.

You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.
