RECORD for the most 20+ match win streaks in the Open Era: Fed now at 6.

Going through both the ATP and ITF databases, this is what I have come up with. I took quite a while to go through the old guys pre-1977 like Connors, Nastase, Smith, Ashe, Laver, Rosewall, and Newcombe because the ITF database is not searchable for all tour tournies before 1977.

In any case, the usual suspects are there along with quite a few greats who could not manage to accomplish the feat. It takes quite a run to get to at least 20. Many old tournies had 64 player draws so smaller tourny wins could still yield 6 wins. A slam win, a 64 draw tourny win, and a 32 draw tourny win would get you to 18. Then you could get to a QF of the next tourny and get to 20.

There are probably one or two that I have missed so if you do know of someone, please let me know.

I always thought that once the first point has started, if a player retires it counts as a loss.

Fed has only 4?
It seems like he's been on 20+ win streaks forever.

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)
SAFIN 2 and Out (T.T)

That's because he's only had a few weeks (Aug 2004, May 2005) in the past 18 months when he's not actually been on one.

Re: RECORD for the most 20+ match win streaks in the Open Era: Federer at 4.

Shouldn't 40+ match winning streaks count for two 20+ match winning streaks? This would set Borg apart from McEnroe and Lendl!
Great work again, as usual, NYCTennisfan!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: RECORD for the most 20+ match win streaks in the Open Era: Federer at 4.

So Rogi should try and lose his 21st match so he can get started on another 20+ streak?

No one tell him about this record!

Re: RECORD for the most 20+ match win streaks in the Open Era: Federer at 4.

Since losing to Guga at last year's RG, these are Federer's streaks:

23 wins in a row before a loss to Hrbaty in Cincy
1-2 record going into the USO
26 wins in a row before a loss to Safin at the AO
25 wins in a row before a loss to Gasquet in MC
11 wins in a row before a loss to Nadal at RG
31 wins in a row and counting

That's a total of 117 wins and 5 losses.

40+ match win streaks are amazing. You're basically going half of a calendar year or more undeated.
