It was not me who brought the list of percentages. It's not simplistic.
Since the year of the first slam win (2003 for Fed, 2005 for Nadal) actually Fed has the better winning percentage compared to the 2nd best player of the era, Nadal.

Federer
2003 78-17 82.11%
2004 74-6 92.50%
2005 81-4 95.29%
2006 92-5 94.85%
2007 68-9 88.31%
2008 66-15 81.48%
2009 61-12 83.56%
2010 65-13 83.33%
2011 64-12 84.21%
2012 71-12 85.54%
Average 87.12%

Nadal
yet to win a slam title
yet to win a slam title
79-10 88.76%
59-12 83.10%
70-15 82.35%
82-11 88.17%
66-14 82.50%
71-10 87.65%
69-15 82.14%
42-6 87.50%
Average 85.27%


2012 winning percentage says hi. 85+% is pretty damn high by whoever standards you choose and that is Fed in twilight years (turned pro in 199 vs the 5 years younger rivals all in their prime.

I should give myself for medal for not cursing out or insulting, trying to hold back.
