Trivia Question:
I wonder what male player has lost to the eventual grand slam champion the most times in their career.

In the 90's, it seemed whoever beat Michael Chang went on to win the U.S. Open, as he lost to the eventual champion 6 times, in 1991, 1992, 1993,
1994, 1996, and 1997.

At the U.S. Open, Lendl lost to the eventual champion 9 times, in 1980, 1982,
1983, 1984, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992.
