    Well, depends on how you want to look at it. He had the 2010 Wimbledon/French/US, so if he'd won the Australian in 2010 or 2011 he'd have had the necessary run of 4. Either way, it was the Australian he failed to capture.
    You said CYGS, so it has to be 2010. :p:

    And he's also prevented anyone else from winning the French and completing 4 GS in a row of course:

    Federer: 2004 (AO, Wimb, US), 2005/2006/2007 (10 straight finals, several possibilities here)
    Djokovic: 2011-2012 (Wimb, US, AO)

    This is quite true, but it's status as CYGS-denier has continued into the modern era - Nadal in 2011.
    What do you mean by "CYGS-denier has continued into the modern era - Nadal in 2011"?

    In case anyone hasn't seen the draw, here's the draw for Queen's: http://www.lta.org.uk/3G/Tournaments...s/2013/MDS.pdf

    Pretty easy run to the semis for Murray. The other half of the draw looks more interesting.

    And here's the order of play for tomorrow: http://www.lta.org.uk/3G/Tournaments...ws/2013/op.pdf

    Lol - he's got Mahut in R2 again. Match-up against Tsonga in SF and Berdych in F would be good practice for Wimby.

    Here's a question for the more casual fan, how many grand slam winners will be at Queens?

    Draw is interesting, i wonder which Tomic will turn up.

    3 GS winners in the draw: Hewitt, Delpo and Murray.

    And Tomic is all hype. He is bowing out in the 1st or the 2nd round. Can only play well in Australia.

    Mind you, this is grass. I'd say Berdych is probably the second-scariest player in that draw.

    Actually, a Berdych-Murray match on grass should be delicious.

    Don't want it to happen at Queen's - hope they save it for Wimby!

    Rafa would have won a calendar year grand slam in 2011, if not for the AO.

    Yup, was wondering if anybody would forget Hewitt.

    Possibly.

    A Murray vs Del Porto final would be nice.

    Much better field than last year's tournament, which is good to see.

    Very strong field for a 250. 4 top 10s in the draw. Should be a cracking start to the grass court season, after a pretty boring clay court swing.

    So the clay swing is over. I had predicted a whitewash for Rafa. Could have been had he won Monte carlo. Next time.

    Having said that, despite the lack of big names at last year's it is no doubt one of the most memorable tournaments ever. Thank you, Mr. Nalbandian.

    D'oh. I forgot to read what I was looking at. Of course I mean Rafa was denied one by the AO in 2010 (and indeed, Rafa denied Djok one in 2011 at the FO). Poor show me!

    lol, my post looked rather angry.

    But both you and TopHat posting 2011 made me resort to checking Wikipedia to make sure I wasn't going mad! :p:
