    Definition of the word "stable" obiuosly means the fraction of number of matches he win to the number of all matches he played in his career. It is one of possible ways to value a player ( there are obviously other methods, say number of GS won, tournaments he won, average of year rankings and etc.).

    I couldn't make calculations for all players we heard, but made for some of them. Please, notice that more matches a player played more difficult for him to keep the same percentage, more valuable is his result. I have sorted them from better to worse ( from up to down).

    Bjorn Borg - 82.29 % of matches he won ( 700 matches played in career)
    Jimmy Connors - 81.96 % ( 1491)
    John McEnroe - 81.87 % (1059)
    Lendl - 81.80 (1308)
    Laver Rod - 79.84 % ( 491 )
    Sampras - 77.44 ( 984)
    Hewitt - 76.95 ( 486)
    Becker - 76.91 % ( 927)
    Vilas - 76.6 (1201)
    Agassi - 76.38 % ( 1084)
    Roddick - 76.32 (342)
    Edberg - 74.91 (1076)
    Federer - 73.53 (442)
    Wilander - 72 (793)
    Coria - 69.33 ( 225)
    Ferrero - 68.24 ( 381)
    Chang - 67.97 (974)
    Rios Marcello - 67.07 (583)
    Kuerten - 66.92 ( 523)
    Moya - 66.37 (672)
    Rafter - 65.21 ( 549)
    Safin - 64.59 (466)
    Nadal - 63.33 (90 - very young)
    Corretja Alex - 61.09 (717)
    Gaudio Gaston - 59.33 ( 327)
    Ljubicic - 54.43 (327)
    Santoro - 52.14 % (725)
    Ancic Mario - 50.43% ( 115)
    Davydenko - 46.5 % (200)

    id say lendl, that guy could play on any surface, and he was facing much stronger competition. he played them all pretty much. used a little bitty racket too, 65 sq inches and still hit amazing topspin.
