    Eddie Dibbs reached 42 finals, but never a grand slam final. This was more finals than Kuerten, Courier, Gomez, Stich, Safin.

    Davydenko has 27 finals and interestinglyi enough has the 2nd best winning percentage in finals all time of players who have played a minimum of 10 finals. he is 21-6.

    Fast Eddie also played the 1978 WCT title match, which I consider a major in that time or at least was considered well above the AO
    He was heavily beaten by Gerulaitis,though

    How about record for most finals without even reaching a Grand Slam quarterfinal?

    It seems to be Kent Carlsson, who reached 17 finals, but never made it to a Grand Slam quarterfinal.
