Novak Djokovic 2018 Wimbledon Final's victory one week ago increased the longest final's winning streak realized by 4 male players at one Gran Slam men single tournament with 16 in a row. Indeed, since Roger Federer’s 2003 victory, only 4 players have won the Wimbledon title : Federer (8), Djokovic (4), Nadal (2), Murray (2). The last man who won the Wimbledon title except those four was Lleyton Hewitt in 2002 (against David Nalbandian).
It equals the second longest final's winning streak by 4 female players at one Gran Slam single tournament, at Wimbledon as well, between 1978 and 1993, with Navratilova (9), Graf (5), Evert (1), and Goolagong (1). But the longest final's winning streak realized by 4 players in one Gran Slam single tournament is 21! That streak occurred between 1909 and 1929 at the Women's US Open. Indeed, only 4 players won the 21 different titles: Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman (4), Mary Browne (3), Molle Bjurstedt Mallory (8), Helen Wills Moody (6).
