^ I have Tilden in my all-time top 10 (as I believe everyone should) but to have him as GOAT is to ignore the fact that competition was much less in his days. The number of countries/players who played tennis to a serious level was much lower than it is today. Hence it's no surprise that his percentages were even better than latter-day greats.
