Who holds the record for most finals won in a row?

The streak of seven Federer's currently on (eight if he wins tomorrow) is impressive, but he had two even better runs. Between Vienna in 2003 and Bangkok in 2005 he won 24 straight finals, and between Halle in 2006 and Dubai in 2007 he won 10 straight finals.

So my question is, does anybody know what the all-time record for most finals won in a row is? Is Federer the record-holder, or is it another one of the greats?

In the Open Era, yes. Before that the record was jointly held by Borg and McEnroe who had 12 consecutive wins in tournament finals.

Edit: As Apophis has correctly pointed out, Nadal has since gone on to surpass Borg and McEnroe's tallies as well.

Nadal had 14, Borg and McEnroe 12.

24 straight finals won is a record that will probably never be broken
