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.
Forza, Thanks that you try to not insult me. In this forum one needs good nerves...

Your Federer list confirms me: In his best years Federer had weaker competition. Thank you!!

By the way, Federer needed 55 GS tournaments to win 17 of them. That's excellent, but surely not great. Tilden, f.i. won 10 out of 23.
