For Spain it's surely a record.

From 1978 through 1985, there were at least 2 U.S. players in the QF's of slams until the last slam of 1985, the Australian Open. Most of those slams had 3 or 4 and sometimes 5 U.S. players in the QF's. That would make 31 QF's in a row. If you discount the 1977 AO because of it's smaller draw, the streak is even longer. The long streak was the work of JMac and Connors of course, but Gerulaitis, Denton, Solomon, Tanner, and Ashe provide help as well.
