Re: There is no finish line...
Yeah, but he'll be gone by the end of the year unfortunately, leaving just Bastl from the 'pre-Fed' era before his streak began. Hewitt and Haas are both Fed era, but are the only two who were there before he was.
Bastl's also never waited this late into the year to play, so while it's still possible for him to remain active, it's getting less likely. With him gone, that leaves just Haas from 1996.
