Duarte, I'm not sure but I think it's Nadal in the Open Era. Litotes and Slash would probably know better as they are both 'crazy' about stats :).
Yeah, I was hoping one of them would answer. :p

I know Roger held a major from 2003 Wimbledon to 2011 AO.
Wondering if that is the longest streak and if not who did better.

I think it's Rafa.
2005 RG
2006 RG
2007 RG
2008 RG,W
2009 AO
2010 RG,W, US
2011 RG
2012 RG
2013 RG, US
2014 RG

But I guess you don't recognize Rafa as a tennis player :p So for you it's Roger and Pete.

I'm sorry if I didn't make myself clear. I meant the player to hold at least one of the last 4 slams played. Nadal didn't hold a slam after the end of 2010 AO (AO-Federer, RG-Federer, W-Federer, USO-Del Potro).

The correct answer to this question is probably Pancho Gonzales who held a major from 1948 US Championships to 1960 U.S. Pro.

Edit... nope, it isn't. He held major in each of those years though.

If you are looking into open era that is. I think Bjorn Borg also held a slam for 8 years, but I'm not sure if he was slamless at a time like you mentioned.

I think Duarte is referring to the open era. I could do a research but it's too much work :). Slasher or Litotes will let us know.

Open Era records are worthless imo... it's for those who can't break all-time records.
:rolleyes: If only the governing bodies of the sport had consulted you before coming to their decision to differentiate between the pre-open and the Open era :help:

Just as well to put Nadal at 20 as he's held a slam for the last 17 slams and will hold one for the next 3 as he can't lose his RG crown until next year

So is the record for winning at least one Slam a year consecutively 12 years then? Doubtful Nadal can top that.

As for the question at hand I'm a little surprised it's Sampras and not Fed actually.
