Cibulkova Wins19 Games in a Row to Start AO

Cibulkova won the first 19 games she played at this year's Australian Open.

What's the longest stretch a player has managed in a major before they lost a game?

Or the longest stretch before they lost their first game of the tournament?

I remember Lindsay Davenport at Indian Wells in 2005.

She won her QF 6-0 in the second set.
She beat Sharapova 6-0 6-0.
Went up 4-0 in the first set of the final against Kim.

That's 22 games.

Re: Cibulkova Wins19 Games in a Row to Start AO

well, Zvonareva herself has won 19 already this slam (at least) winning a first set, a bagel set and then winning a double bagel (1 at least + 6 + 6 + 6 = 19)

so we didn't have to look far.
however i do remember a thread where one of the old greats (nad, chris or Graf) had 24+ games in a row.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

In 2005, Mariah Carey defeated J.Lo 6-0 6-0 and then Rihanna 6-0 4-0 so that's 22 games right there.
