This would be more impressive if it was a winning streak, and didn't include losses to SereNa WilLiams.

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

Yeah, probably the longest in recent years. Venus was at 21 until she played Jankovic in Stuttgart '08.

Serena would have had a monster streak from 2011 Toronto until 2012 Madrid but it was ruined by Yakimova in Fed Cup last February. Her longest is 19.

Nice...but those losses in between.

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

Brie Whitehead played 25 straight 2 set singles matches from Jan 2006 to May 2007. So to answer the OP: No, Maria doesn't have the most ever.

So Maria has a good chance at the record then. She can straight-set JJ/Vinci, get straight-setted by Rena (like 1 & 2 probably), and then she just needs a couple straight set wins in early round on clay, which should be easily manageable.

*knock on wood* Another record for MEGA GOAT Maria Sharapova surpassing the legendary Brie Whitehead!!!

I'm not saying Brie Whitehead has the most, I'm just using her as an example

They probably don't even have stats on this because this stat is so completely and utterly useless.

And btw, I understoof your sarcasm

Maria is also on a 20-set win streak, the longest of her career.
