Feliciano López (Spain) has taken part in 68 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments, dating back to the French Open in 2002. His most recent outing was a first-round defeat to Australia’s Jordan Thompson at the Australian Open on 14 January 2019. López has reached four Grand Slam quarter-finals – at Wimbledon in 2005, 2008 and 2011, and at the US Open in 2015.
López made his main-draw Grand Slam debut at the 2001 French Open, but missed that year’s Wimbledon and US Open and the 2002 Australian Open before commencing his unbroken Slam streak on the clay courts of Roland Garros in 2002.
Roger Federer (65 consecutive Grand Slams), Fernando Verdasco (63), Ai Sugiyama (62) and Francesca Schiavone (61) are the other players with 60+ consecutive appearances under their belts. Only Verdasco’s run is still active, as of the 2019 Australian Open.
With a total of 69 Grand Slam singles appearances to date, López is ranked joint seventh on the all-time list, behind the currently active triumvirate of Venus Williams (81), Federer (75) and Serena Williams (70), plus the retired Amy Frazier (71), Fabrice Santoro (70) and Schiavone (70). Mikhail Youzhny also made 69 Grand Slam outings.
