    Who has reached a GS final only once in their career and won it (besides Gomez 90 and Majoli 97)?

    Ah yes, Adriano Panatta. The only guy to beat Borg at the French Open - Bjorn lost there in '73 and '76, and skipped the event in '77. Astounding!

    What about Petr Korda's AO win. Was he in another Slam final?

    5 setters in a Slam final are rare too. I remember Wimby 2001, some French Opens with Gaudio-Korea, Agassi-Medvedev but thats about it right nows. Anyone remember more?

    Yeah there has been a drought recently. Agassi over Martin in the 99' USO comes to mind.
