Kafelnikov 2000 - 101
Schuettler 2003 - 101
Safin 2000 - 100
Davydenko 2006 - 98

Roddick 2004 - 92
Roddick 2003 - 91

Just one of this seasons since 2010

Re: The best winning percentage in single season

It's been 14 years since someone last played at least 100 matches in a season. Will we ever see another player play 100 matches in a season?

Re: The best winning percentage in single season

Interesting to note, Kei's 79.4 is the lowest mark for a particular generation to be the top percentage in a season. It's not much lower than Rios with 80.0 - which is the lowest.

Zverev right now has 13 losses for the year. If he goes on a run - he could very well be the first to crack 80 percent in a season.

Re: The best winning percentage in single season

Strange to think Sampras' best season win percentage comes all the way down in 44th place. Both Lendl and Connors have six seasons better than his best.
