*Difficult to say for sure, as during this winning streak there were two matches in tournaments where Connors lost by DEF - that's what it says on the ATP website. They count these as wins for his opponents in the head-to-head statistics, but if there's no scoreline then surely the matches weren't played, right? If you do count them as defeats then he only had a 27-match winning streak - he eventually lost a completed match to Onny Parun in the semis of San Francisco.
**Obviously Borg left the game having won RG for the fourth time in a row in 1981, but he did make an ill-fated comeback in the early 90s and lost his first match on French soil.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.
Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?
ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
