I really hope he can break Connors' consecutive QF record in slams entered - even more impressive as Rog's feat would be consecutive.
According to this timeline http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Le...mance_timeline Lendl has 28 (it starts at FO 1983, the non-entered AusOpen 1982 was his last tournament before the streak)

I also count 34 in entered slams, hadn't thought of that record yet, good one. He also has 37 consecutive 3rd rounds in slams entered, and 40 second rounds.
