    Thomas Muster won 40 of his 44 tournaments on clay. That is 91% of the number of tournaments he played. Does anyone have a higher percentage on any surface ? Nadal is 18/23 on clay. Anybody closer to the Muster percentage? Thanks.:)

    If it hadn't been for the accident he would have won more on hard courts I think.

    Hmmm...Not really sure. I'd be interested to see it broken down on other surfaces, especially the indoor carpet (like McEnroe) and grass (Federer, Sampras) tournaments.

    what's the minimum amount of events counted for this stat?

    all of Blake's 10 wins were on hardcourt.

    Berasategui: 14 of 14 of his titles were on clay

    Albert Costa: 12 of 12 of his titles were on clay

    Let's say 10. haha.
    Those records look pretty good. Berasategui defeated Muster to win his final title. Are there any more ?

    Felix Botella was 10 of 10 titles on clay

    Bruguera was 13 of 14 titles on clay

    I suspect that the clay courters are likely to be far more numerous here.
