View Full Version : 10 Greatest streaks in Open era history

1. Federer 10 straight slam finals (winning 8 of them)
2. Federer, 22 straight slam semis (losing to eventual winner in each)
3. Federer, 65 straight wins on grass (5 wimbledons)
4. Federer, 237 consecutive weeks @ No. 1
5. Nadal, 81 straight wins on clay (2 french opens)
6. Laver, 4 straight slams
7. Sampras, 6 consecutive yearend No. 1s
8. Nadal, Borg, 4 straight french opens
9. Federer, 5 straight US Opens
10. Federer, Borg, 5 straight wimbledons
--------------------------

- The only reason Rod laver is at 6 is because of the lack of variety in surfaces those days. If somebody does it now (unlikely), it will be the greatest feat in all of sports. Fed came closest 3 times.

- IMO, 4 consecutive french opens > 5 consecutive wimbledons. Sustained domination at the french is harder.

- 65 wins / 5 years / 5 wimbledons > 81 / 2 years / 2 french opens.

I would like to see your lists and compile a consensus top 10.

You omitted Vilas' 46 match win streak in '77. Also I think 4 straight slams has to take precedent, especially considering Laver did it twice. Another one is Borg pulling the French-Wimbledon double 3 consecutive years.

I value slams more than rankings but for some reason Federer, 237 consecutive weeks @ No. 1 and Sampras, 6 consecutive yearend No. 1s really stand out to me as being insane or not being surpassed.

Oops, sorry about that!

Does anyone know what the tournament winning streak is, like most tournaments in a row week-after-week?

I remember hearing something about Lendl winning 6 tourney's in a row, but I have a feeling Federer might have this record now.

Federer won 7 tournaments in a row from 2006 US Open to 2007 Dubai. But I'm pretty sure Lendl and McEnroe both won 8 in a row at some point. Lendl also holds the record for most final appearances in a row with either 18 or 19, and Federer fell one short of that, too.

Some of Borg's streaks definately belong in here, but how can anyone compare Federer's semifinal streak with simple appearances?
Even I could manage 22 straight slam appearances if I got 22 wildcards, but winning 22 times at least 5 matches is something very different.

The last two I agree with, but if you don't think 22 consecutive Slam semis is impressive, you're out of your damn mind.
especially when you think the previous record was 10 (lendl !). ;)

the same lendl that says:
"If you called me eight years ago and said 'There will be a guy who comes along, and he'll be in 21 straight Grand Slam semifinals,'" Lendl said. "Well, I would be looking for a polite way to end the conversation as quickly as possible because I'd be talking to somebody out of their mind."

Then he laughed again.

"It's just ridiculous," Lendl added. "There is no other way to say it. You can't explain it to people, it's just absurd.

"When you slow down and really think about it, it's almost obscene."
(from Carsomyr's link)


by the way, lendl's 9 straight finals at the masters cup is also a very impressive record ! (just to qualify 9 straight times is already amazing, so...)

about roger, there's also his 24 consecutive finals won... that's big too !
(previous record was 12, by borg and mac)

From Carsomyr's first link: (http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tennis/usopen09/columns/story?columnist=garber_greg&id=4458857)
If Federer reaches the final here, he would become the first man in history to reach all four major finals in the same year on three occasions (2006, 2007, 2009), surpassing Rod Laver's Grand Slams in 1962 and 1969.Truth has never sounded more ridiculous.:lol:

The 22 straight semis (and counting) streak is the greatest. 10 straight finals will probably be broken eventually, hell, Fed's already at 7 again, as mentioned, so maybe he'll break it, but he'll never break his semis record, nor will anyone else in our lifetimes.

BreakPoint
10-21-2009, 02:55 AM
How about 7 straight Wimbledon finals followed by 6 straight US Open finals by Federer?

Borg never made 7 straight Wimbledon finals, and although Lendl made 8 straight US Open finals, he didn't precede them with 7 straight Wimbledon finals.

I think Nadal's 81 match wins on clay is just as impressive as Fed's grass streak. Sure, Fed's lasted longer, but Nadal played more matches in his. Funny how they both stopped each other's streaks.

Also, how is a 4 FO streak more impressive than 5 USOs or 5 Wimblys?

Yep, the Fed-Nadal rivalry is definitely the greatest IMO. They've taken away so many of each others possible achievements. Sure it must be great to have a good rival to help excel your game, but deep down I'm sure Nadal or Federer have always thought: "If <nad/fed> didn't exist, I'd have ALL the slams!" haha.

Fed's slam streaks are very well known.
But 41 match streak from US open'2006 to Dubai'07 is also exceptional.
He won USO, Tokyo, Madrid, Basel, Sanghai, AO and Dubai on the trot.

I'd put Nadals streak 2nd. his clay streak is the most impressive single winning streak in my opinion. just beaten by federer's grand slam statistics (I don't think more than 2 or 3 streaks here are necessary, the slam semi-statistics is the most increddible to me).

and don't forget also previous streaks by borg if you want to include the open era.

Not to be mean, but if you mean ONLY men's tennis then it should be written in the OP or title. Let's not harken back to the old days where women's achievements were only valid "for a woman". As a female tennis player, Chris Evert's achievements are incredible. We can't help that we aren't 6'2" 185 pounds.

Well, it was pretty impressive, but not the greatest streak. Vilas did it in one good year, not like Federer' 22 consecutive semifinals was done in more than 5 consecutive years. You just can't imagine that feat can be done by a human-being. That ****ing unbelievable streak.

Interesting. For comparison with RF's semifinal record, let's take from 2006 and beyond for Nadal since he was only a teenager in 2005.

He has made 10/16 semifinals since January 2006. Two tournaments he missed with injury and he made 2 QF and 2 4R (1 2006, 2 2007 and 1 2009). 8/10 he went on to make final.

The consecutive nature is what makes the record so great for RF. No real injuries, all-surface dominance.

Oh, wow, that's pretty cool. Probably Nadal's biggest trophy, and it's also, sort of, his "hometown" tournament as the club where the tourney is played is his club and Barcelona is closest to Majorca in terms of ATP stops (also, the old Majorca ATP event merged with Barcelona.. and that's where Nadal played his first ATP matches)..

So, definitely must have been a great moment for him.

Just to make 22 consecutive slam appearances alone is impressive b/c so many players are unable to do it. For Federer to managed to reached all the semi for 5 and half years is incredibly remarkable.

3. No, it didn’t ring a bell. When did Borg ever won 65 consecutive matches on grass?

10. You are right, Borg did win 5 consecutive SW19. But Roger did it in the modern era while Borg’s feat was 30 years ago. Plus, Borg had a combined total of 7 matches that reached a 5 setter, Roger only had one match.

How about winning 9 of 11 consecutive slams, with another final thrown in to boot? That's pretty dominating.
But after winning the grand slam as an amature in '62, and having to await the dawn of the open era to compete again, Laver reached the finals of the French and took Wimbledon in '68 and then the grand slam again in '69. (Pro's were not allowed to compete yet in the '68 AU.)

On the men's side, some of Borgs records are overlooked (as has been noted), plus Ivan's (8 USO finals in a row), and connors (#tourneys, 3USO's on 3 diff surfaces), etc., etc. Even Andre's career slam is worthy of note...

You said that you felt Federer's other streaks were worthy of inclusion. According to your definition of the term, his 10 straight GS finals run isn't a "streak" either, if I'm to take that you believe it's not a streak if he loses.

I think Ferreira's streak is impressive because it attests to his longevity, but Federer's streak attests to his longevity and remarkable consistency. As another poster said, Federer's victory over at least five opponents (except the couple of walkovers he's had) twenty-two times in a row at the big events is, as Lendl put it, obscene.

Open your eyes and watch tennis. Just last week in Shanghai alone, there were a total of 6 matches that ended prematurely b/c the players retire early. Stop being so blind.

Since you mentioned it, this is just one of the article where Roger's steak is being compared to:


• Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak in 1941 for the New York Yankees. Pete Rose's 44 games is second on the all-time list.
• Edwin Moses' 107 consecutive victories in 400-meter intermediate hurdles finals. The American went 9 years, 9 months and 9 days without a loss before falling to Danny Harris in 1987.
• Cael Sanderson's 159-0 wrestling career at Iowa State. He remains the only undefeated wrestler in college history, winning three NCAA titles at 184 pounds and one at 197.
• The Edmonton Oilers' Wayne Gretzky's streak of scoring at least a goal or an assist in 51 straight games in 1983-84.
• Orel Hershiser's run of 59 consecutive scoreless innings in 1988 for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
• Russia's Greco-Roman super heavyweight wrestler Alexander Karelin went 13 years without losing a match -- a full decade without surrendering a point -- before losing to Rulon Gardner at the Sydney Olympics.

Yeah, I really would have added Jahangir Khan to that ESPN list. His streak of 555 matches won just doesn't make any sense. Even if he went in to every match with a uniform 99.5% chance of winning, it still would have been unlikely. I don't even play squash, and it is absurd.

ah yes but his since his 22 straight semis are still counting, he will continue to break it until he doesn't break it! :):)

This is true, can't argue with that!
