Most consecutive years winning 90 % of matches or more:

1. Björn Borg 4 (1977–1980)

2. Jimmy Connors 3 (1974–1976)

2. Ivan Lendl 3 (1985–1987)

2. Roger Federer 3 (2004–2006)

4. Andy Murray (GBR) 57-13 - 81,4 %
5. David Ferrer (ESP) 59-19 - 75,6 %

I don't count Soderling (38-9 - 80,9%) because he played only 47 matches (player must played minimum 60 matches in my ranking).

Re: The best winning percentage in a season

In 1978 Borg played 9 matches in Davis Cup and stupid ATP not showing them in his profile.. so, he was 79-7 in that season

Pretty good criteria for an 'all-time greats' listing. Sampras has 5.

Re: The best winning percentage in a season

I know he didn't make the magic 60 but what was Rafa's percentage from last year?
