Re: The best winning percentage in single season

Fed, Borg and Connors impress me here, in that order. Lendl next possibly. Connors with so few slams per year is odd. Same with Lendl of course.

Re: The best winning percentage in single season

Lendl has four 80+ seasons. You've listed them all.

For players outside top-3, try Brian Gottfried

Re: The best winning percentage in single season

I hope its okay but I just checked through for 80+ number of wins seasons and found these:

2008 Nadal 82 wins
2006 Federer 92 wins
2005 Federer 81 wins
2001 Hewitt 80 wins
1995 Thomas Muster 86 wins
1993 Sampras 85 wins
1985 Lendl 85
1984 McEnroe 82
1983 Wilander 82
1982 Lendl 106
1981 Lendl 97
1980 Lendl 110
1980 McEnroe 84
1979 McEnroe 95
1979 Borg 84
1977 Vilas 134
1976 Connors 90
1975 Ashe 97
1975 Vilas 87
1974 Connors 93
1974 Borg 93
1974 Newcombe 84
1973 Nastase 114
1973 Connors 80

Top5
1977 Vilas 134
1973 Nastase 114
1982 Lendl 106
1981 Lendl 97
1975 Ashe 97

Number of 80+ seasons
3 Connors, Lendl, McEnroe
2 Federer, Borg, Vilas
1 Everyone else

Added this and that here, but my question is do you have more data than the top3? I guess there could be some extra 80+ seasons outside of the top3.

Re: The best winning percentage in a season

Nice work

So....Federer and Lendl the only ones with five seasons on top. Borg and Sampras with four. Connors, Agassi, Nadal and Djokovic with three.

Did you mixed up 1989 and 1988? I think you did based on the GSs.

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

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