Most consecutive titles year by year

I saw that Hewitt holds the record among the active players with at least winning one title every year for the last 10 years. Just wondering who holds the all time record? what record is he chasing?

Edberg had 12 in a row. (1984-1995)

Chang had 11 years in a row. (1988-1998)

Sampras had 11 years in a row (1990-2000).

Agassi had a streak of 10 (1987-1996), followed by one down year (although he did win a Challenger!) and then another streak of 8 years. (1998-2005)

Last of the moon-and-volley specialists.

Thanks. Yes, Chang had 11 years in a row. (1988-1998) [I'll add him above]

Re: Most consecutive titles year by year

I find Andre the most impressive(for the one stat on one title a year) . But thats just my take on it.

Re: Most consecutive titles year by year

You can add this MisterQ

Vilas 11 years in a row (1973-1983)

What do you call moonballing? Everybody can moonball. Can you do this?
At the other end of the spectrum was the Spanish player Sergi Bruguera, who generated topspin at an incredible rate that averaged over 3300rpm, more than 3 times as much spin of Mary Jo. Bruguera's average on 8 forehands was actually 3331rpms, and included the single fastest spinning forehand we recorded, an amazing 3751rpms in a match against Marcelo Rios.

In men's pro tennis it normally takes about 1 and 1/3 seconds for the ball to travel from one playerUs racket to the other in a baseline exchange. In the case of Sergi Bruguera's forehand, this means the ball is turning over itself 70 to 80 times as it travels to his opponent!
