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

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.

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.

I know some of Steffi's consecutive set streaks.. dont know what the record is..
From YEC 93 F to Lipton 94 F Steffi won 55 sets in a row.
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.
From Berlin 88 to Wimbledon 88 F, she won 36 sets in a row.

I am preety sure theyy were coz when Dani won the first set the commentators were saying how strange that was coz it had been forever since Venus dropped a set.

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.
