Like Del Potro.
Anyone know this stat since 1990?
As you can see, several legends fit this category. The last two players to win a US Open w/o having won a Masters event beforehand were Rafter and Sampras -- very good company.
Add to the list
All of those guys won multiple slams as well.
Hewitt did it as well. He did not win his first masters until 2002.
Del Po is in good company indeed.
Korda won a MS before winning the AO.
Gaudio & Krajicek should also be on that list.
So to summarize, these are the players that are the answer to the Op's question(only since 1990, since that is when MS events began)
3 of these players only won one major.
