*Difficult to say for sure, as during this winning streak there were two matches in tournaments where Connors lost by DEF - that's what it says on the ATP website. They count these as wins for his opponents in the head-to-head statistics, but if there's no scoreline then surely the matches weren't played, right? If you do count them as defeats then he only had a 27-match winning streak - he eventually lost a completed match to Onny Parun in the semis of San Francisco.

**Obviously Borg left the game having won RG for the fourth time in a row in 1981, but he did make an ill-fated comeback in the early 90s and lost his first match on French soil.

Rui MacHado had a 21 match winning streak this year in Portugal, but it was in futures, and one ATP :lol:
Lost to Serra in Estoril this week 76 61 to end it. Still impressive though.

Nalbandian is having a 8 matches winning streak in singles (ATP Buenos Aires + Davis cup Singles matches). that can be 10 if u count Davis Cup Doubles matches also
hopefully he will continue this streak in September

I think the criteria should be a minimum of 15 matches in a row, so we'll see....

How about Nadal in Monaco?

Might as well wait until both this event and Rome are finished, I think.

For sure.

Nice to see Borg with a 15 year win streak. Good stuff.

I wasn't aware of Borg's come back attempt at the age of 36-38 in the early 90's, he didn't win a match although interestly in the last match he played he lost 7-6(7) in the final set tie-break against Alexander Volkov.

On the subject of Connor's stats, in my mind if those matches were walk-overs for the opponent that's not a winning streak, I strongly believe giving a w.o. should not be part of any winning streak record, it's a match loss, simple as that.

I saw the come back match against Arrese, it was beyond pathetic. He came back with his old guru and his wooden racquet... I don't know what he thought when he came back. I guess Volkov was drunk when he played against him. ;)
