That Diamond Jackson victory that screwed this mega streak?

I like the 20 straight sets record more. A streak that includes losses

Re: Maria on one of the longest two-set match streak?

Longest I could find on WTA level:

After her 3-set loss to Navratilova at the 1989 YEC, Monica Seles played 31 consecutive 2-set matches in early 1990, including a 26 match win streak where she was never even taken to a tiebreak. The streak ended when she needed three sets to beat Kelesi in RG R2.

After beating Tauziat 6-3 4-6 6-3 in Zurich 1999, Martina Hingis had a streak of 31 2-set matches (of which she lost 5) until her loss to Davenport in Indian Wells. However, the 6-1 0-0 retirement of Van Roost is included in the streak.

It depends on the streak - if it's a 'winning' streak, it obviously can't contain losses. A losing streak can't contain wins. And a two-set match streak can't contain 3 sets. That's the condition, not whether the match was won or lost.

I don't understand how only going down in straight sets is supposed to be a great record.
