Default/walkover before a match start do not count as a win or loss.
So if a player win a round then default the next round for 10 tournaments, does it count as a 10-match win streak?

I emailed the ATP about this last year because I was confused as to why they weren't acknowledging Borg's 49 match win streak when Federer was getting close to it. Borg had some walkovers during that stretch.
"A WO does not count as a loss in a Win-Loss record, but does break a
players winning streak."
then later on in the year I read this when Nadal felt ill in Rome:
ROME (AP) — Rafael Nadal went to a hospital for a checkup following a dizzy spell Thursday, although he was not planning to withdraw from the Rome Masters.
Nadal will attempt to extend his 73-match clay-court winning streak later Thursday against Mikhail Youzhny.
"Everything is OK. It was just a routine checkup. He's playing tonight," Nadal's spokesman Benito Barbadillo said. "It was the same as yesterday. He was just feeling a little dizzy, that's it."
Nadal said he felt dizzy after his second-round win over Daniele Bracciali on Wednesday.
Even if he does withdraw, Nadal's streak will remain in intact.
"A withdrawal is not considered a loss or a win," ATP spokesman Nicola Arzani said.
