    Actually the answer would be 1983 Navratilova: 86-1, she lost at RG too

    Was this player a male? Was it prior to the Open Era? Pretty certain that J Mac's record is the best for a male in the Open era. Here are some other dominant seasons by an ATP player:

    1974 ... 95.9% ... 93-4 ... Connors
    1984 ... 96.5% ... 82-3 ... McEnroe
    1986 ... 92.5% ... 74-6 ... Lendl
    2004 ... 92.7% ... 76-6 ... Federer
    2005 ... 95.3% ... 81-4 ... Federer
    2006 ... 94.8% ... 92-5 ... Federer
    2011 ... 92.1% ... 70-6 ... Djokovic

    nice thread concept but the riddle was too easy, even if you didn't say what sex that player was

    The real tough riddle no one has been able to answer is the GOAT riddle.

    Which makes me want to moan how Federer managed to comeback from 0-4 down in the final set but choking in the TB? :evil:
