That is a really weird stat. Why was Rios so poor at the Slams? He reached the #1 ranking and yet he only ever made it past the quarters on ONE occasion!
It can't be as if the best of 5 format didn't suit him or anything because he won 5 Masters tournaments including the clay triple when they were all played in best of 5 format.

Has any #1 player in history ever had such poor results in the Slams as Rios?
