Default Consecutive Grand Slams with different winner/finalists

Recently, much attention has been given to the dominance of a small group of very good players. In contrast, the years 2002-2003 are famous for having 8 different Slam champions, without anyone dominating. I looked up the most non-dominant periods in all of tennis history according to the criterion of consecutive Slam streaks with different winners or finalists. In early times, players usually didn't play in each of the four Slams, making it easier to reach a longer streak, which creates a bias.

I'll provide Open Era-only stats and individual-Slam stats in the next two posts (the latter is not suffering from the above-mentioned bias).

Notes:
Listed streaks can overlap.
Aus 1977J and Aus 1977D indicate the January and December edition

Different Slam Champions:

1		10	(USA 1905 - Aus 1908)

This post is about all-time results again, with the longest streaks of winners and finalists in each Slam separately.

Note that some long streaks include gaps due to world wars, making it easier to have a longer streak.

Default Re: Consecutive Grand Slams with different winner/finalists

5 different winners in the last 5 US OPen, I hadn't though that'd be possible in the Federer/Nadal/Djokovic Era! First time since French Open 2001-2005.
