The greatest slam performances by a player
 
What are the highest levels demonstrated by a player during/throughout a Grand Slam tournament? Not necessarily the most difficult competition faced/toughest match ups but purely the level of the individual in question.

Here is the top 10 in terms of % of games won:

Nadal's RG '08. It was the greatest slam performance in the history of the sport.

Difficult to argue as I didn't see Borg.

Nadal in '08 at RG round by round:

5 - 3 - 1
4 - 0 - 1
1 - 3 - 1
1 - 0 - 2
1 - 1 - 1
4 - 2 - 6
1 - 3 - 0

Just ridiculous.

Have to say RG 2008 by Nadal that was brutal and hilarious. Only one that gave him even a bit resistance was Nole in SF and even that was easy :o

Nadal USO 2010 imo. Huge serve + the best baseline game in the business, as close to unbeatable as it gets.

Probably Nadal at RG 2008 and Borg at RG 1978 and RG 1980

2008 Roland Garros Nadal. But then again I never saw Borg play so I can't really judge on that.

Nadal at RG 2008.

Definitely Nadal's RG in 2008. Fucking awesome shit!

Pretty jokes that he can even play 'shit' for his standards at RG and still end up with the trophy only dropping a few sets, like in 2010 for example.

The '78 French Open is just beyond belief tbh. Borg gave up more than 2 games in a set twice throughout the whole tournament :lol:

Agree with RG 08 by Nadal

It would be interesting to ask about best performance for each slam: AO, RG, W, USO

Because it is difficult to have such dominant scores on grass/hard as on clay

AO: Fed 2007
RG: Nadal 2008
W: Fed 2006
USO: ?
