Tilden's 8 were all Grand Slam titles (from 1920-25). He has that over Budge; no pro majors needed.

However Budge was the victor in 6 consecutive Grand Slam events, which is still the record in the classic majors (Tilden's maximum was two in a row, the Wimby/US double).

What is the longest streak in the pro majors, without skipping any?

By the way, who stopped Rosewall's streak of 9 majors won in which he participated?
