The 2nd option.

You can't disregard losses by WO, as it would mean a player could theoretically chicken out and still have a winning streak going. Wins by WO don't add up to the streak (you don't deserve any credit for those), but don't break it (as it's not dependent on you whether the other guy will quit).

That's also how ATP officially deals with it and I think it's reasonable.

This is the most reasonable way to look at it.

Well, you know me, as a stats freak I think all three are interesting. We have one longest streak on clay, one on grass and one on HC, I see no reason why we can't also have one longest win streak counting WOs, one half-counting WOs and one ignoring them.

Of course they both count.

In terms of a WO loss, it ends your streak. You were scheduled to play and you didn't. You lost the match.
In terms of a WO win, it should count towards your streak. You are not to blame that your opponent did not show up or retired. You still get the prize money and progress to the next round, so why not count it towards the win streak as well?

A WO loss should count as a loss and a WO win should count as a win.

2 or 3, they are basically the same, expect from a statistical point of view, which anyways counts it all at the end anyway.

But yeah, a WO loss would end the winning streak imo and a WO win would keep it going obviously and whether it's counted as one or not is not important.

1st option for me and retirements during the match should be disregarded as well if the injury disadvantage is clear.

When you run onto a sporting event naked and it distracts one of the teams so much they lose. That's a 'winning streak'

Option 3 should be the most logical (and no it's not because it favours Djokovic)...if a WO loss ends a winning streak I can't see why a WO win wouldn't count in a streak

Voted for option 1, but option 2 seems legit too.
