It all started with that 2001 Basel QF...and from there on they played against one another at least once each year....

Any similar rivalry in this respect ?

Lendl and Connors 10 straight between 1979-1988 and then once more in 1992.

Agassi and Sampras did 13 years between 1989 and 2002 but there were no matches in 1997.

Johny Mac and Connors did 11 straight between 1977-1987 and then once each in 1989 and 1991.

Not as long a stretch but Federer has been beaten by Nadal AT LEAST once every year since 2004. That's seven years in a row. How long will this impressive streak last?
