Was funny looking at the list, and seeing John McEnroe's 1990 Australian Open result in the top 10 for winning percentage! I mean what does that say ? ? ? McEnroe was defaulted from the 1990 Australian Open! Further proof this list is meaningless.

Goran Ivanisevic barely won more games than he lost at 2001 Wimbledon. A worse record than some on the best winning percentage list. But Goran won Wimbledon! That's what counts the most!
Of course you're right but the point of the thread is DOMINANT tournament stats. It is interesting to know. Over the long run the players with more dominant stats in this category should have better winning percentages.

It's like stats in baseball. Everything equal the teams with better stats will win more.
