Federer played Roddick at least once each year since 2001.Any similar(or longer) duo?

It all started with that 2001 Basel QF...and from there on they played against one another at least once each year....

Any similar rivalry in this respect ?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

Lendl and Connors 10 straight between 1979-1988 and then once more in 1992.

Agassi and Sampras did 13 years between 1989 and 2002 but there were no matches in 1997.

Johny Mac and Connors did 11 straight between 1977-1987 and then once each in 1989 and 1991.

Becker vs Edberg (1984-1996) -- 13 years.
Lendl vs Johnny Mac (1980-1992) -- just missing '86.
Lendl vs Connors (1979-1988) -- 10 yrs.
Federer vs Hewitt (1999-2010) -- just missing 2006

Not as long a stretch but Federer has been beaten by Nadal AT LEAST once every year since 2004. That's seven years in a row. How long will this impressive streak last?

Proud fan of Olderer, the GOAT.
