Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic: Who's Best in Pressure Situations?

In my two previous articles in the stats game, I've looked upon who's the best front-runner among the Big Four (read here) and who's best at coming from behind (read here). Both articles had some surprising conclusions.

Today, I look at more categories. Categories that say something about who, among the top four, is best at handling pressure moments.

There will be disagreement as to what to include and what not to include in a slideshow like this. I've chosen to include how a player performs in finals, in tie breaks, while facing break points, while having a break point, in the deciding set as such (third or fifth) and in the fifth set (because of the significance of many matches ending in a fifth).

I could have included a category such as 'versus top ten opposition', but choose not to at this point.

Let's find out who's best in these different pressure situations.
