The Slam match win % still more important, etc.
Totally agree.

This type of thing is too subjective, in my opinion. A great player having a bad match could extend a match he actually has no business drawing out. Conversely, someone who's playing well could inexplicably go away for a couple of sets only to return long enough to close out the fifth. You conceivably commend or chastise either player in either instance, making it an ineffective determinant.

In the end, as a poster above me eloquently suggested, the end result is what matters, and ultimately speaks more to the quality of the player.

If Federer was a beast in 5 setters then it would be a brilliant stat. Most of the time he doesn't need to go that far as he finishes matches before then.

At the same time he is clearly the current leader in coming back from 0-2 down to win in 5.

Is there a list of 5 set wins from 2-0 down for past and current players.

To some people, I'm sure, but no, that would do nothing to diminish the subjectivity of the topic. You could make the most of a bad day, play outside yourself against someone much better than you, or squander your talents against someone beneath you and end up in a fifth set any which way. What generalization can be made about that?

Marin is 11:3 on Slams and 3:3 at Davis cup, so it's 14:6 actually. 3 out of 6 losses came on his beginnings. He won 9 out of last 10 matches. But, in almost all of that matches he was better ranked player.
And all that losses are cases: vs Simon, Murray and Seppi he was too young, vs Haas he waste MP, vs Berdych he was too tired of quaters of US Open, vs Nishikori he collapsed.

Muller is 8-2 now.

Really? I thought Borg was 26-6. Voo's numbers can generally be trusted (post #21):

Do you disagree with him? If so, which matches should be removed?

Voo is right checking through all the results and 26-6 is better than Kriek in percentage.
