    Re: ATP: Career Win Percentage

    The list (except, probably, top 18) seems not to be full. Here is what I have found via the atptennis.com site just in a few minutes (restricting myself to those with over 300 wins and winning percentage over 60%):
    Clerc 375 148 71.70%
    Muster 622 271 69.65%
    Noah 476 210 69.39%
    Gene Mayer 316 156 68.40%
    Gottfried 678 321 67.87%
    Ramirez 517 254 67.06%
    Kafelnikov 609 306 66.56%
    Gomez 523 267 66.20%
    Henman 475 253 65.25%
    Teltscher 397 215 64.87%
    Ashe 323 177 64.60%

    Sandy Mayer 334 185 64.35%
    Gilbert 519 288 64.31%

    Re: ATP: Career Win Percentage

    After some reflection (i.e. - scanning of the list of career millioners ) found 4 additional ones:
    Solomon 564 315 64.16%
    Taroczy 385 227 62.91%
    Jaite 301 179 62.71%
    Medvedev 321 213 60.11%

    Moreover, these guys from the 80s do not qualify because of the number of wins, bit still wanted to share:
    Carlsson 160 54 74.77% (anybody knows what happened with this guy?)
    Mecir 262 122 68.23%
    Nystrom 265 142 65.11%
    Perez-Roldan 241 137 63.76%
    Cash 242 149 61.89%

    The same for these two guys from the 70s (though they do not qualify because of the percentage)
    Lutz 389 262 59.75%
    Alexander 506 363 58.23%

    Re: ATP: Career Win Percentage

    There is something terrible going on with Arthur Ashe's stats:
    first, he was an only triple GS winner to be forgotten by PeterSkan
    and then I mixed up his singles and doubles records(
    In the singles it is 637-202, i.e. 75.92%, and the overall 13th place for Mr Ashe.
    Sorry for the mistake

    71. Andrey Medvedev UKR 1974 321 213 60.11

    The special prises go:
    - to Jose-Luis Clerc - for being the best (accordng to this list) player never to win a major;
    - to Sergui Bruguera - for being the multiple slam winner with the lowest winning percentage (though Safin is working hard to break this record)
    - jointly to Goran Ivanisevic and Tomas Smid - for having most losses among the players listed.

    Re: ATP: Career Win Percentage

    Wow, it's amazing how tiny the difference is among the tops: 0.33%, 0.16%, 0.05%. Connors and Lendl deserve some kind of prize for not only being 2nd and 3d but for also having the most total matches. It's one thing to have a 75% record when you played 400 matches and retired at 25, but to have played 1200+ matches and still have an 80% record, it's mind-blowing. [smiley=shocked.gif] I'm too tired to be coherent and I don't mean to detract from, say, Borg or Laver, but after seeing this list I have a new respect for Connors and Lendl (and Mac's pretty high up there too).

    Re: ATP: Career Win Percentage

    What is the source of win-loss data?
    For example currently ATP site lists John McEnroe win-loss as 875-198.
    Sure he didn't play any matches except seniors during 2006-2008.

    I'm guessing that since this list hasn't been updated in more than 2 years, that the active players aren't accurate anymore.

    Oops..me too! Was going to say Fed's total seemed small, and wondered how this year made his win % drop.

    Someone needs to update it!
    A Canadian Slam winner? Inconceivable!
