This question/debate goes for any sport and any athlete or even any team.. does there exist a more dominant win percentage at a single event than Rafael Nadal at the French Open? You can expand that question to just impressive overall. Doesn't have to be for a single event. So that opens up discussion for Golden State making 5 straight NBA Finals, the Patriots and all their Super Bowl appearances, etc, etc.
Here is what Nadal has done at Roland-Garros:
He won it in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2018.
So that's 11 wins in 14 years, a 78.5% win percentage. Nadal didn't start competing in the event until 2005 for reference.
I gotta think that's the best you will find, especially if you consider it's over a 14 year stretch. It's so hard to be at your peak for more than a decade. And he is the favorite to win in 2019. So it could be 12/15. And he is only 32 right now. Imagine he has 3-5 years left of great play at least. So who knows how many he will win all said and done.
One thing is clear, no one will EVER catch him at the French Open. The next closest is Max Decugis at 8 and he did all those from 1903-1914. Then there's Bjorn Borg with 6 who did it from 1974-1981. The only other current tennis players with multiple French Open wins are .. oh wait.. it's nobody.
Makes his dominance even that much more impressive. His feat has an excellent chance of never being matched. Ever.
So I think its a really interesting question, who has ever been this dominant in any sport? Welcome to throw in any athlete from any sport, whether its an individual sport like golf, tennis, auto racing, even the Olympics. Or any team sport. Curious if anyone comes up with a better answer than Nadal.
