For all you stats freaks out there: In the Open Era (1968 to the present), the maximum number of Grand Slam finals played by a male player, who never went on to win one, is 2. The maximum number for female players is 3. A total of 8* men played in 2 Grand Slam finals without ever winning one and a total of 4 women played in 3 Grand Slam finals without ever winning one. Can you name these 8* men and 4 women? *Edited.
