Nalbandian has won 15 consecutive Masters Series matchs... Does anybody know how many consecutive victories is the record?

Federer holds with the record with 29 consecutive victories in TMS matches. The streak started at Hamburg 2005, and was ended by Nadal in the 2006 Monte-Carlo final:
Hamburg 2005 - 6
Cincinnai 2005 - 6 (12)
Indian Wells 2006 - 6 (18)
Miami 2006 - 6 (24)
Monte-Carlo - 5 (29)

Rios's best winning streak in TMS events was 11 consecutive victories, during 1998. He won 11 matches to clinch the IW/Miami double (IW had a 56 man draw then), didn't play at Monte-Carlo, and lost in the 1st round at Hamburg (in those days Hamburg took place on the week before Rome).

Apart from Federer's record streak during 2005-2006, and Nalbandian's current streak, other times I can think of where a player has put together a streak of 15 or more consecutive victories at TMS events are:
19 - Sampras across Indian Wells, Miami, Rome and Stockholm in 1994
18 - Nadal across Monte-Carlo, Rome and Montreal in 2005
17 - Muster across Monte-Carlo, Rome and Essen in 1995
15 - Agassi across Miami, Rome and Cincinnati in 2002
15 - Federer across Indian Wells, Miami and Monte-Carlo in 2005

Federer is the KING of streaks! However, the only one that's still going are:

15 consecutive GS semis
54 consecutive wins on grasscourts
5 straight Wimbledons
4 straight US Opens
2 straight TMC

What makes Nalbandians streak even more interesting is that it's not just consecutive TMS matches that HE has played, but also consecutive TMS events. Most of the other impressive runs have been made at non-consecutive TMS events.

...and:

4 consecutive years finishing as world's #1 player (needs three more years to beat Sampras record of 6 consecutive years)

216 consecutive weeks at #1 (needs 71 weeks more to beat Sampras' all time record of 286 non-consecutive weeks at #1)

So if David wants to reach Roger's streak he needs to win IW, Miami and Monte Carlo and it will be Madrid (6), Paris (12), IW (18), Miami (24) and Montecarlo (30)

Except for Fed's 2 big streaks which were at consecutive TMS events. :devil:

Safe to say, it ain't gonna happen. Fat Dave's run is about to end in a round or 2.

Not the long streak:

Hamburg 2005 - 6
Cincinnai 2005 - 6 (12)
Indian Wells 2006 - 6 (18)
Miami 2006 - 6 (24)
Monte-Carlo - 5 (29)

In between those events he skipped Canada, Madrid and Paris.

What about Rios?
Rios won in 1998 :wavey:
5 in IW
6 in KB
then he lost in Hamburg R2 to W. Ferreira (he got a bye in R1)
after that he won Rome 5 more matches (he won the final by W.O. over Costa), at the moment Rome was the only Super 9 with a 64-player draw

I remember the 50 win streak that Canas snapped. That was really something.
