Lendl and Federer have had the most impressive seasons.

With McEnroe's 1984 being worth a mention. I think this stat is very telling of how dominant some players were in their era and if things were tight at the top. (which was the case in the 90's).

If you did then Lendl made the biggest streak on 90%+

EDIT: no you didnt I checked it although the order was miskeading
