Default Best "challengers" at the AO

Of the four semifinalists, Federer is by far the best challenger (by percentage of correct challenges). The commentators like to say that he doesn't like the challenge system and that he's rarely right. But he's had more correct out of fewer challenges than any of the others.

Federer: 7/13 (54%)
Ferrer: 5/15 (33%)
Djokovic: 7/21 (33%)
Murray: 4/14 (29%)

BTW, Robin Haase is the top challenger with 100% (2/2)!

nice stat.

And there is the answer about why before there were crazy, swearing and abusing racquets players, while now they're as rare as black tennis shoes...

Over 20 wrong calls combined for only 4 players

wow, really? I though it was Novak. I feel like he's always right, and on really close ones, too.
Fed is first? He's usually terrible at it!
