HC winning percentages (career):

1) Graf 88.8 %
2) S. Williams 85.0 %
3) Seles 84.0 %
4) V. Williams 82.3 %
5) Davenport 81.1 %

Best 2-year HC period:

Graf 80-1 (1988/89) 13 tournament wins; loss to Sabatini
V. Williams 57-2 (2000/01) 9 tournament wins; losses to Hingis,
Shaughessy
S. Williams 47-3 (2002/03) 6 tournament wins; losses to Shaughnessy,
Rubin, Clijsters
Seles 73-6 (1991/92) 9 tournament wins; losses to Navratilova (2),
Graf, Capriati (2), ASV
Davenport 79-10 (2004/05) 10 tournament wins; losses to Henin (2),
Kuznetsova, Myskina, S. Williams , Clijsters, Groenefeld, Dementieva,
Sharapova, Pierce

Graf far ahead, no contest here.
Serena is most probably the best of the rest.
Interesting that Davenport has no 2-year period in which she won more
than 90 % of HC matches. Considering how high she is rated in the U.S.
on that surface.
