1. G.Zemlja - Played 9 Won 77.78%
=2. I.Sijsling - Played 8 Won 75.00%
=2. D.Nalbandian- Played 12 Won 75.00%
4. R.Nadal - Played 11 Won 72.73%
5. M.Llodra - Played 14 Won 71.43%
6. N.Davydenko - Played 13 Won 69.23%

Federer has played 31 tie breaks this year winning 61.29% of them which puts him 18th on the list. He has dropped a few tie-breaks to people he shouldn't have this year: Ungur, Benneteau, Roddick & Bellucci. He has also dropped a couple to Raonic in there matches

There should be a minimum requirement of TBs played. Part-time players like Nadal should also be excluded from the sample.

11 TB's is more than enough, not his fault he's not an all serve mug like Jizzner and Serverer and finishes the sets off in 6-2 or 6-3

Well, I am not saying he should be excluded for the # of TBs played. He should be excluded because he doesn't play on the ATP tour full-time :shrug:.

Yeah, I wish Federer would sometimes win matches like 6-3 6-1 or something. Well, a boy can dream I guess...

Isner and Murray are the most impressive. No surprise to see the top spots occupied by people who played <15 tiebreaks, winning a high % after playing 20+ is a lot more difficult.

Out of the top 20 Wawrinka has by far the worst stats for tie-breaks.

Played 28 and won just 35.71% of them :sad:

This again shows how clutch Nadal is, having such a huge percentage (in his career it's pretty high as well I believe) without a big serve that can help him out.

Re: 2012 Tie-break Kings
