The greatest streaks in tennis?

What with the semi-final run finally ending yesterday, I was wondering which streaks people think are the most impressive in tennis - obvious examples include the semi-final streak, Vilas' 46 match wins in a row, Rafa's 81 wins in a row on clay, Querrey's ten aces in a row... which other ones? Also, which streaks will be the hardest to break?

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

23 SF is the greatest.

This. They are all great (well, the 10 aces is more of a random effect), but 23 SF in majors tell the story of a high level consistency that simply can´t be compared with the other. Guess one could also consider Budge's 6 consecutive slams, nobody has ever won more than 4 on a row.

Re: The greatest streaks in tennis?

They are all impressive in their own ways. It will be a VERY long time before anyone even comes close to breaking it (speaking of which, does anyone know the current second best streak of semifinals for active players?)

Rafa's 80+ wins on clay is also really impressive, as is Roger's 65 consecutive wins on grass (especially considering how woefully short the grass season is)

Someday these records could be broken, but I think they are all really impressive and it's been an honour to be able to see them happening.

Federer's SF streak awe-inspiring.

Players winning a major, the first time of asking and backing it up. Nadal at RG, 31 straight wins, Seles at AO, 33 straight wins. Pretty special.

Re: The greatest streaks in tennis?

10 consecutive Grand Scam finals.

Followed by Ronald Fudges 6 slams in a row.

18 of 19 slam finals is clearly the best, but it's not a consecutive streak.

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

- Rafael Nadal, ever so "humble", - press conference after shock 4 set loss to Robeen Soderling @ 2009 French Open 4th round.

Re: The greatest streaks in tennis?

Querrey's 10 aces will be very hard to beat, also Fed SF streak. Rafa's clay court wins in a row, Fed weeks in a row at n1...
all great streaks.

Federer winning 24 finals in a row is also pretty impressive.
