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!

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...

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...

E.g. Both Zvonareva and Radwanska have played more tournaments than Jankovic.

:haha: You must have foot in mouth syndrome. The percentages I gave are rounded correctly. Yours, on the other hand, are not. #2 Safina has a career W/L of 281/130 which gives a win percentage of 68.369% The correct rounding of that is 68%

Okay. The reason you have foot-in-mouth syndrome remains. You accused someone else while displaying what you accused them of. If you'd simply offered corrections without trying to be self-righteous it would have been great. Instead you look like a pompous ass.

That said. I'm going to correct Sharapova and check a couple others.

If you want to count a win percentage, you always take the wins and devide it by the total matches, that's the right way, you can't do it any other way.

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!

I very much agree Jelena's win % is very impressive - more so than Serena's and Maria's to me - because she's 3rd highest and kept it that high over a lot more matches. Mathematically, looking at all the players win % - the standard deviation is going to decrease the more matches played. More and more players with high or low win % are going to move towards the middle as more matches are played. Fewer will move the other way. That is why every sport that havs tables based on averages only put players who have played a minimum number of matches or whatever on the list. That is why Jelena's win % is impressive.

Maria's YTD percentage looks good on paper without stating how many matches she actually played. But she had an outstanding first couple of months - then started losing, pulled out a couple of matches which conveniently for her don't count as a loss - and she hasn't played for half the season now.

Finally - measuring improvement from the table of YTD win % vs career win % - Jelena and Zvonoreva come out the best - so well done JJ. :worship:
