I think precentages are really unfair! Who plays the most on the tour-- jelena does so she is going to have a worse percentage than does serena who only plays a few tournaments here and there!

JELENA JANKOVIC'S YEAR!

That doesn't make any sense. Jelena and Serena both play the big tournaments where the other top players play. Jelena's extra tournaments are smaller, where she should dominate. Thus, Jelena should actually have a better record than Serena. Kim Clijsters played as many tournies as Jelena in 03, 04 and 05 and won a higher percentage of matches.

Sharapova has the same career win/loss as Henin, better than Hingis, Clijsters and Venus, and just one point lower than Serena. That bodes well for Maria...

Henin - 82%
Davenport - 80%
Hingis - 80%
Clijsters - 80%
Graf - 87%
These career percentages show that Jankovic is not even close to being in the same league as those previous number ones.

I think the percentages are unfair too! Whoever the most most gorgeous(ElenaD i mean) should have the highest percentage of any kind by default!

Yes, but Maria hasn't experienced a downslope of her career yet. Great players lose most of their matches very early and very late in their careers. I suspect Venus career win % has been gently declining for the last 4-5 years...

Because from the check I just did, for the past 4 years she has stayed at 81%
At the end of:
2003-82%
2004-82%
2005-81%
2006-81%
2007-81%
2008 so far-81%
