Well played, I was wondering who the "5-slam-winning-opponents" champion was.

I had to a lot of research to find out who the "beat 4-slam-champions-then-lost-to-a-fifth" guy was;

Vitas Gerulaitis, 1979 US Open

Edmondson (1st rd, 1 slam)
Smith (3rd rd, 2 slams)
Kriek (QF, 2 slams)
Tanner (SF, 1 slam)

Lost in final to McEnroe (7 slams)
Sloane Stephens and Laura Robson: future WTA world No 1 and 2.
