Consecutive Grand Slam Tournaments Played (as of 2011 U.S. Open)

Consecutive Grand Slam Tournaments Played (as of 2011 Wimbledon)

In 2004, Wayne Ferreira established an all-time men's record with 56 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments played.

Here are players who have not missed a Grand Slam tournament in the past 20 Slams (or better):

Player--Number--Streak Started
Roger Federer--48---2000 Australian Open
Feliciano Lopez--39--2002 Roland Garros
David Ferrer--37--2003 Australian Open
Fernando Verdasco--34--2003 Wimbledon
Tomas Berdych--33--2003 U.S. Open
Albert Montanes--30--2004 Wimbledon
Philipp Kohlschreiber--29--2004 U.S. Open
Nicolas Almagro--28--2005 Australian Open
Novak Djokovic--28--2005 Australian Open
Guillermo Garcia-Lopez--28--2005 Australian Open
Stanislas Wawrinka--27--2005 Roland Garros

Federer will need to play through the 2014 Australian Open to better Ferreira's record.

In 2008, Ai Sugiyama established an all-time record (among men & women) with 62 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments played.

In 2008, Fabrice Santoro established an all-time men's record for total Grand Slam tournaments played (70 as of Australian Open 2010).

Here are the (male) players with the most Grand Slam tournaments played in the Open Era:

Fabrice Santoro 70
Andre Agassi 61
Jonas Bjorkman 58
Michael Chang 57
Jimmy Connors 57
Wayne Ferreira 57
Ivan Lendl 57
Mark Woodforde 55
Stefan Edberg 54
John Alexander 53

In 2006, Amy Frazier established an all-time record (among men & women) with 71 total Grand Slam tournaments played.

Hewitt would have been on that list if it wasn't for his absence at RG this year

Dominik Hrbaty is at the top of the list in at least one category: playing in consecutive Grand Slam tournaments.

The native of Bratislava, Slovakia, is playing in his 36th consecutive Grand Slam tournament at the U.S. Open, way behind the record of 56 by Wayne Ferreira of South Africa, but by far the current pacesetter.

"I am happy that I have been very healthy for my career," the 15th-seeded Hrbaty said Wednesday after downing Italian Andreas Seppi 6-2, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-2 in a first-round match. "I have always had problems, but never anything big."

There was an inflamed Achilles' tendon once, but Hrbaty doesn't think that was a big injury.

"I always follow doctor's orders," he said. "I take care of my body. And I sleep 10 to 12 hours every day."

I originally compiled it for Wimbledon by using the chart in the 2005 media guide & updating with this year's info. Today when I saw the blurb about Hrbaty, it inspired me to update it through the U.S. Open.

Of the guys currently on the top of the list, The Fed is the only one young enough to have a real shot at breaking the record. (He would have to play through the 2014 Australian Open--age 32 1/2--to do so.)

Of course, Hrbaty could surprise us all by continuing to play another 6+ years. He'll only be 33 at the 2011 Australian Open. [Ferreira was a few weeks shy of age 33 when he played his 56th & last grand slam.]

Something tells me that Arthurs and Schuettler will get out of this list very soon, if they don't improve their current level.

arthurs is a big surprise. i thought his ranking would have fluctuated too much and too low to get him into 27 in a row.

Re: Consecutive Grand Slam Tournaments Played (as of 2006 Australian Open)

both hrbaty & ferreira have similar games & styles & rely on conditioning & pyhsical stamina
great to see players that committed
can Dominators pass Wayne's record?
undecided

Wayno makes it 28 in a row by entering Roland Garros a qualifier!

women are doing much better in this department than the men.

Lena Likhovtseva and Ai Sugiyama have both played 48 GS in a row, Lisa Raymond is at 44, and Patty Schnyder at 38.

Go Ivan, with every GS since 1999, that means he's been in top 100 for a while years now
