In Rome this Year, Nadal equaled Guillermo vilas record of conescutive victories on clay and eventually passed his mark in Roland Garros. This week in Halle if Roger Federer win the tournament he will equal Bjorn Borg record of 41 victories on grass also, will have a chance to pass Borg record at Wimbledon.... How much of a coincidence is that. That we have two records of consecutives vicotries, in the same year.

Modern day racquets!

Huh? All players use them. It's not like one player has an advantage. The tennis played today is much more physical, the athletes are better, and the level of play is much higher.

Records are meant to be broken, all of them.

Modern day technology period. It's not like the atheletes are better, although they certainly are, but the modern technology like graphite racquets and Luxilon are precisely what allow extremely talented players to keep streaks like this.

You make no sense. "It's not like the athletes are better, although they certainly are,..." wtf?

To state modern racquets/technology as a reason for a winning streak is ridiculous, period!
It's just a coincidence that the best clay court player and the best grass court player in recent years peak at the same time while the rest of the field is 1 or 2 steps behind, hence new records are born on these respective surfaces!

Ripper is right.

What I mean is that the fact that atheletes are better makes far less difference than the modern technology does. They are better yes, but this means little compared to the effects of better racquet and string technology. Sorry if that was confusing.

But you could also argue that modern equipment would allow some scrub who has an all time day to blast winner all over the place and be more likely to break the streak.
