The INCREDIBLE 42-match losing streak of Josh Olivas!

I had noticed that this American player seemed to be losing a lot, so i looked up his results on the ITF site and he has lost 42 matches in a row, dating back nearly two years to September '03. Of the EIGHTY-FIVE sets Olivas has played in this stretch, he has won only ONE, and he has lost 53 of his sets by a 6-0 or 6-1 count. His career match record is 6 wins and 90 losses. Olivas's streak is on the line today in Washington qualies against Damisa Robinson of Nigeria, let's hope he has some luck and finally picks up a win.

I don't think that Tennis is the thing for that guy, so he should make sure that his losses get him a place in the ATP hall of Fame then retire and do something else worth it

After the 10th loss, he should've called it a day.

^But that was playing at a higher level and not losing every match 6-1, 6-0.

Re: The INCREDIBLE 42-match losing streak of Josh Olivas!

He's gotten a lot of wild cards into various South American events (I smell bullshit!), he's qualified for a future's event where he didn't even win a match, but he got a bye instead straight into the main draw. Shit like this.

It's the Amadeus-Fulford Jones / Kyle Doppelt syndrome.
