    Slams- Federer & Borg at Wimbledon(both 5 straight)

    Masters Series- Nadal, Federer, & Agassi all have won 3 straight. Nadal at Monte Carlo & Rome, Fed at IW, Agassi at Key Biscayne

    Not sure about ATP, but I know Kafelnikov won 5 straight at Moscow

    vive le beau jeu ! would probably know more.

    Moose! Are you becoming senile already? Nadal has won his 4th consecutive Monte Carlo a day ago! :p

    And yes, Kafelnikov won Moscow 5 times in a row: 97, 98, 99, 2000 and 2001. He was runner up to Goran in 1996 ;)

    unfortunately i don't have any exhaustive list for that. with 5 straight titles, appart from federer, borg and kafelnikov, i also have vilas at buenos aires [1973-1977] and tarocsy (?!) at hilversum [1978-1982].

    EDIT

    eheh... just found connors at birmingham from 1974 to 1980... which makes 7 straight titles ! :D

    I seem to remember Taroczy(sp?) owned a small event in Europe, like 6 years in a row, cant remember which however.
