Evert did this 6 times over. Evert had no less than 6 finals at each of the majors. 6 Aussies, 9 RG, 10 Wimbledons, 9 US Opens.
At the Aussie she reached the finals every time she entered the tournament.
At Wimbledon she reached the finals of 6 finals in 7 years from 1978-1985 (missed 1983)
At the US Open she reached the finals of 9 out of 10 consecutive finals from 1975-1984 (missed 1981)

Can't say she did not feel comfortable playing big matches. In 56 entries into grand slams she reached the finals of 34 of them or 61% of the time she entered a major, she was there for the final match
