Fair point. I think the most impressive wins by the "Second 4" over the Big 4 in Slams, in no particular order are:

Delpo over Nadal and Fed at the USO

Tsonga over Nadal at the AO and over Fed at Wimbledon. [I'd also note his near-win over Djoker at the French. I don't recall his earlier wins over Murray and Djoker at Slams, which, I'm assuming were before they had rounded into the champions they are now. Still impressive, but not as impressive as his other Big 4 wins.]

Berdych over Fed at Wimbledon and USO.

Ferrer over Nadal at 2007 USO.
