Now that we have Nadal's 60 on clay and Federer's about-to-be 48 on grass, how about longest winning streak on hardcourt and carpet? Who owns those records?

On Hard : 56 straight matches won by Roger Federer ( 2005-06) . The streak was broken at Dubai

Are you sure? I thought it was Lendl.

'Tis JMac, 65 matches in a row ended, I think, by Lendl in either 1984 or 1985.

I tell a lie, it was actually Joakim Nystrom in the first round (well, Mac's first match after a bye) of Dallas in 1985. That streak had lasted since the autumn of 1983.

Given that there are so fewer tournaments on carpet nowadays, I think this Johnny Mac record will stay for a long time.

Can't believe Carpet record is even longer than a Clay one :o
