Question of the day now:
Question 1 (Easy and sad): Who has realized the most important series of consecutives win in US OPEN? and how many?
For me it was a little bit tough
Firstly I thought about Richard Dudley Sears, who won 7 consecutive US OPEN titles. In fact, he was undefeated in his US OPEN history because he only played that 7 years that he won, and in addition he won the 7 first US OPEN titles of all time (US OPEN started in 1881 on grass at the Newport Casino Tennis Court, where now it is hosted an ATP 250 after Wimbledon). It required a deeply Google search to find the old draws of the tournament (http://www.tennisarchives.com/coureu...coureurid=4942
). But things didn't go as well as I thought: Richard Dudley Sears won 5 matches in 1881, 5 in 1882 and 4 in 1883 (he didn't play the First Round). As you can see the draws were of a maximum of 32 players because they played R1, R2, QF, SF and F. But the fact is that after 1883 (and until 1911) they played in another format. The whole tournament was done to decide what player had to face the defending champion in a extra round after the final called "Challenge Round". So Richard Dudley Sears won 1 match in 1884, 1 in 1885, 1 in 1886 and 1 in 1887, when he stopped playing singles matches. So he won an amount of 18 matches.
Then the answer is Roger Federer with 41 victories (35 of the 5 consecutive titles from 2004 to 2008 and 6 of the race to the final of 2009 where he lost with Del Potro).
