Nadal win streak hits 30, the longest since... when?

I think Nadal had 19 straight going into the Hamburg final last year, that must be the previous longest. Nadal will surely beat that in the first few days of Wimby.

Yes, he can get to 25 or even 26 at Wimbledon. It will definately be a good streak considering after that he may play Stuttgart.

Nadal will be defeated by some mug on Wimbledon, just like what almost happened last year (Söderling and Youzhny).

17 victories, but if it wasn't for his silly loss due to blisters in Rome, and he had just skipped that tournament as he should, they would be 27.

He's already had 24 wins in a row back in 2005, and 26 wins in a row in 2006.

Yes, but that won't be enough. He also needs to win his next three matches after Wimby.

That's not hard, if he plays Stuttgart (and he will, if ranking matters to him).

Not if he reaches the Wimby final. Stuttgart is the week straight after this year because there's only a two week gap to the American TMS.

But anyway he should be able to win his first three matches even on hardcourts, unless he gets an unlucky draw.

What a complete asinine and idiotic thing to say. Who cares? How about the same people who bother to join a tennis forum and spend a significant amount of time following the sport...duh!

Streaks and sports go hand in hand. It's news in just about every sport. His current streak isn't anything significant enough to mean much outside of him having a chance to set a new record for himself, which is definitely a feat worthy of discussion. I also believe it might be the longest winning streak of this season; I'm not 100% sure on that though.

Anyway, congrats to Rafa. I really hope he can keep it up. Outside of defending his F points at Wimby the rest of the season is great opportunity to really challenge for the top this season. As a Rafa fan it's really exciting.

Definitely.

To keep things in perspective.

Well, if you want to keep things in perspective you should consider this: Montecarlo + Barcelona + Rome blisters and loss (without that problem this AMS was already in the bag, one of the worst major tournaments in quite time (retirements, injuries, etc, do you remember?)) + Hamburg + French Open + Queens + Wimbledon + Toronto QF (at this time), so...

Winning in Rome: 5+5+5+5+7+5+7+2 (at this time)=41 and counting
Withdrawing in Rome: 5+5+5+7+5+7+2 (at this time)=36 and counting

That's what I call to keep ALL things in perspective. Rafa had lots of bad luck in Rome. Without that blisters he would be tied with Federer (41 matches and counting) and if he had withdrawed he would have 36, so if you want to keep things in perspective you should consider all possible variables and combinations. Read this carefully: Rafael Nadal hasn't lost a match without being injured since Miami final against Davydenko.

PS: Nobody named Federer in this thread since you did, don't forget that.

Longest match winning streaks during the open era

1. Guillermo Vilas (Argentina) - 46 - 1977

6. Björn Borg (Sweden) - 38 - 1979-80
7. Thomas Muster (Austria) - 35 - 1995
= Roger Federer (Switzerland) - 35 - 2005
9. Björn Borg (Sweden) - 29 - 1977
= Björn Borg (Sweden) - 29 - 1979
= Pete Sampras (U.S.) - 29 - 1994
12. Björn Borg (Sweden) - 26 - 1977

= Roger Federer (Switzerland) - 26 - 2004-05

= Rafael Nadal (Spain) - 26 - 2008

Only 21 wins to beat the record ;)

I still maintain that the Eagle represents 'Hard Courts' robbing Nadal of his manhood and reducing the size of his testicles...

The fish however... hmmm... i am kinda of picking up a Biblical reference here... dude named Jonah who got eaten by some whale... cant remember the story exactly... but the whale ended up burping Jonah out or passing him at a later date through its rectum... so.. i think Jimmy is trying to reassure the Nadal Fanboys n Girls that Nadal will be ok when 'Hard Courts' have finished with him...


anyways... i think the fish is important... but i also feel that the fish is in trouble... i studied fish at school and i feel that the sky is the wrong place for it...

While it only just edges his previous best streaks, what makes this one all the more impressive is that it has covered three months, 2 AMS, 2 Grand Slams and most amazingly, all three major surfaces. He can hopefully win a few matches at Cinci and get this one into the 30s, one of the most impressive streaks ever recorded.

Most winning streaks of Federer consisted of at best two different surfaces.

However, there is one exception in which he also included 3 different surfaces. Halle, Wimbledon, Gstaad, Toronto.

Of course the impressive thing is not the streak but winning consecutive tournaments on clay, grass and hard. As far as I know, only Borg, Federer and now Nadal have done this. Borg in 1979 won at RG, Wimbledon, Bastad and Toronto.

The reason this streak is so special is more about the quality of tournaments he's won, and the variety of surfaces he's won on. Federer's 41 match winning streak of August 06 - March 07 was incredibly impressive, but every match was on hardcourt, and there were quite a few optionals in there. I'd say Federer's actually had a few more impressive streaks in his career for that reason.
