Yeah that's Career index, but Current index is also interesting:
Novak Djokovic .733
Rafael Nadal .700


Hats down to Borg. Impressive stats.

Borg's numbers will probably never be surpassed. He had good deciding set numbers the whole career and then retired at 25 or so. Nadal will only go down from here. Djokovic can polish his career numbers a little then he will start to drop too.

Current index is more interesting: (based on past 52 weeks)

1. Gael Monfils .800
2. David Nalbandian .800
3. Radek Stepanek .800
4. Marcel Granollers .786
5. Robin Soderling .750
6. Mardy Fish .750
7. Richard Gasquet .750
8. Novak Djokovic .733
9. Potito Starace .727
10. Jurgen Melzer .722

What you have listed is the "deciding set" index, not the "5th set" index.

Yeah! I always knew that Monfils is the best at something-tennis-related.

(Yeah it's interesting that Jok is only slightly ahead despite the streak, and despite Rafa losing deciding sets recently)

It show that Lendl-Sampras-Federer are more consistent players. (They don't play more deciding sets to win, so they fall behind in this data.)

(^Sampras doesn't struggle, he's 9th, while Federer is 25th)
