Stats are stats. There is nothing misleading about them as the number of wins/losses is clearly stated right before the percentage.
If I left that detail out... then yes, the percentages would be misleading.
BTW, (17) 5-set matches, across multiple surfaces, is hardly a handful... Tsonga's 4/0 (100%) is a handful and I expect that he'll drop down below Nadal once he finally loses a 5-setter.
