In this list above, now suddenly he is given over 90% for 1979 and 1980. But this list isn't true neither. Following my stats, Borg had 5 years over 90 % win-loss percentage. With important invitational events, if you only count at least 8 men events, Borg was better than 84-6 in 1979, more like 105 or 110-6. Look at the draws of those invitational events, when Borg beat Connors, Mac, Vilas and other top players frequently in best of 5 matches. For 1978, the Collins Tennis history gives him 88-8 in official ATP tournaments, but with important invitationals he has over 100-8 wins for 1978. So better do a bit of research, before claiming on false stats.
Yeah genius...I made that list, secretly sent it to TMF, told him to post it here so that I could quote his post...

You got're too smart for me...

Btw, still waiting for data supporting your below statement:

"and his win-loss percentages over 3-4 years were better than anything Federer did in his great years"

I'm very curious which 3-4 seasons Borg had a winning percentage better than 95.3.
