In the 2nd round of the 2003 Australian Open, Hyung-Taik Lee made a promising start against Agassi, winning the first 7 points. He had held serve in the opening game, and then had Agassi at 0-40 down on serve. However Agassi recovered strongly to win that game and every other game of the match, demolishing Lee 6-1 6-0 6-0. That is the only time in the open era that a player has won 18 games in a row in an Australian Open match.

In their 2006 Australian Open quarter-final, Nalbandian was initially getting very frustrated trying to handle Santoro's trickery, falling a break behind in the opening set and frequently berating himself. However from 5-5 in that 1st set, he figured Santoro out and won the next 14 games in a row en-route to a 7-5 6-0 6-0 victory.
