What is the record for most consecutive sets won?

Justine is doing very well and won her last 15 matches in straight sets. Does anyone know the record for most consecutive sets won? And who set that record? I guess Justine still has a long way to go, but I'm just curious.

I'm sure Chris Evert went through an entire clay season(s) without losing a set

Re: What is the record for most consecutive sets won?

Didn't venus arrive at the AO 2002 ridinng a 28 consecutive match streak, I remeber that is when she had the knee tendonitis and Danilea took the first set off of her, venus won the match but lost either the next one or second match after that to seles.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

This seems like one of those records Chris Evert or Steffi Graf has.

That's pretty impressive for Justine, she's been playing big time players for many of those matches and not yielding a set is pretty solid.

But yeh, I would guess someone like Evert way back in the day probably went through a massive run w/o dropping a set.

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

At the start of 1995 she won 47 sets in a row.
From AO 89 to Florida 89 She won 42 sets in a row.

Venus had a 31 set winning streak, when Dani took a set off her in Melbourne. Justine could break that mark if she wins in str8 sets today.
