2001 Wimbledon - Ivanisevic
2001 US Open - Hewitt
2002 Aussie - Johansson

There was an even longer streak in the 90s:

1995 Muster
1996 Kafelnikov
1997 Kuerten
1998 Moya
1999 Agassi

Before Kuerten regained the title in 2000.

The most recent at Wimbledon:

1972 Smith
1973 Kodes
1974 Connors
1975 Ashe
1976 Borg

Surprisingly, four new winners in a row has not happened at the Australian in the Open Era.

2001 was a great year...they actually showed these matches on Canadian TV. I willl never forget the Ivanisevic wins over Henman and finally Rafter. Classic matches of their time. Such drama...
