Thanks for the corrections! I have edited in Osaka and Andreescu 2019. I've left out Osaka's current streak because, like Sabalenka's, it's still active! (i'm not jinxing anyone lol). Not sure about whether the walkover counts towards it, Azarenka's was before she'd played a single match in that tournament so i'm inclined to think it's a different story for Osaka's withdrawal before the final last year. But I suppose that's up to the individual.You forgot Andreescu's Toronto/USO streak, and Naomi's Osaka/Beijing streak. Also, if retirement don't count, then Cinci/USO for Naom?
I think Sabalenka will win tomorrow and probably win atleast two matches in Melbourne 500 making her streak over 17.
I agree that Sabalenka can potentially reach about the 17 mark.
The years listed are accurate so all except Petra's first 2011-2012 streak were within the same calendar year (but she matched it all within 2018 anyway). Osaka and Sabalenka's current win streaks are also broken up by the off season.Are these streaks all done within one season? Because IMO a winning streak is much more impressive done within a season than with the off-season inbetween.
Clijsters had a 17 match win streak that stretched from '02 to '03 but had an even better one in the one calendar year in 2005 (as above), and Venus and Serena have had good streaks that crossed the off season when they won the US Open (and some warmups) plus a title in Australia early the next season - like Venus winning the Gold Coast Open in 2002 for example.
