Most consecutive GS tournaments played?

Hello

Just wondering if anyone knew the 10 players who have played the most consecutive GS tournaments? (or where I can find the info)

I know Frazier played about 65 and I think Likhovsteva and Sugiyama must be up there, but can't think of anyone else.

Thanks

Re: Most consecutive GS tournaments played?

As far as I know Sugiyama and Likhovtseva hold the open era record in this department (in the ATP the all-time leader is Wayne Ferreira with 56, followed by Edberg with 54).
Also worth mentioning is Coetzer with 46 straight (US 1992-AO 2004).

Last year Amy Frazier set the all-time record for GS main draws at 71, including a record 20 straight US Opens (1987-2006). Next are Navratilova 67, Conchita Martinez 64 (inc. one absence in the midst of 56 appearances), Sanchez-Vicario 62 and Sukova 61.
Some of them (and others, e.g Evert who has 56) could have added a few to their tallies if they hadn't chosen to skip the AO in its weaker years.

Re: Most consecutive GS tournaments played?

With her first round win today, Ai Sugiyama has broken the consecutive GS appearances record for either men or women and set it on 57, starting at Wimbledon 1994.

Likhovtseva's streak btw was cut at 54, as she didn't play any majors this year, and seems to be quitting singles play.
