streak of bad luck/ stroke of luck
Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?
He’s had a streak of bad luck, but this time he had a stroke of luck.
streak of bad luck = a continuous spell of bad fortune
streak = an unbroken series of events
stroke of luck = stroke of fortune = windfall
stroke = anything that happens suddenly or by chance without an apparent cause
Thanks for your efforts.
