From wikipedia about Vilas' record ->

His both winning streaks were terminated by Ilie Năstase in the final of Aix-en-Provence tournament. In that 5-setter final, he dropped first 2 sets by 1-6, 5-7 and then retired from the competition because of his dissatifaction with Ilie Năstase's using an illegal racquet. He complained that the opponent had used the spaghetti string racquet which was eventually banned by ATP.

1969: Rod Laver 31 matches....ended by Ray Moore at PSW
1972: Stan Smith 24 matches

I would think that Connors would qualify for this list based on his 1974 results. Does anyone recall his longest winning streak from that year?
(I think he had a 25+ match win streak in 1974)

What's the policy regarding byes in winning streaks? Are first round byes at tournaments ignored or counted in?
