I think you might be right. Wayne Ferreira has a total of 7 retirements in majors, plus giving an opponent a walkover in another major. Janko Tipsarevic has to be giving Ferreira a run for his money, though.

Wayne Ferreira retired at the 1991 US Open against Pete Sampras, at the 1994 French Open against Alberto Berasategui, at the 1997 Australian Open against Albert Costa, at the 1998 French Open against Marcelo Rios, at 2001 Wimbledon against Andrei Stoliarov, at the 2002 Australian Open against Marat Safin, and at the 2003 French Open against Rainer Schuettler.

Ferreira also gave Petr Korda a walkover at the 1997 French Open.
