There have been some consistent performers in the circuit that were deprived of the Grand Slam Singles title. For the last 5 years or so, the person most recognized as the best player without a major doubt, was definitely, Andy Murray. With some dominating breakthrough performances, Murray shed this particular tag off him by winning the US Open in 2013.
Now the question arises again – who are the best players in the last decade and half (Open era had commenced in 1989, but the focus would be primarily on the last 15 years) to not have a Grand Slam title in their trophy cabinet.
Here are 10 players (both male and female) based on Career-high rankings and Grand Slam results:
1. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Career High: #5
Grand Slam Results: One-time Finalist and Four-time Semi-finalist
The Frenchman had a perfect chance to capture his first ever Grand Slam in the Australian Open of 2008. But he lost a hard fought battle to Novak Djokovic 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 in a classic final. Tsonga has also reached Semis in both French Open and the Wimbledon twice.
