Tony Trabert has been highly rated by many critics and analysts. He won 5/5 Grand Slam Finals and only the Australian Open was missing from his collection. In 1955 he had one of the best seasons in the history of the sport, winning 106 out of 113 matches and 18 tournaments.However, I am unable to find his overall winning percentage and the amount of titles he won. The year before he won Wimbledon without losing a set. He was well known for his serve and volley tactics and his athletic ability. Unfortunately he left the Grand Slam tour in 1955, to go to the professional tour.
