Tennis matches are often dictated by the number of breakpoints a player manages to convert against the opponent’s serve. Converting break points is one of the hardest things to do in the sport of Tennis and it does not come across as a surprise that it’s mostly the top players who have won the highest number of break points in the history of the sport. Let us take a look at the top 5 players of all time with the highest break-point conversion percentage in men’s Tennis.
5. Felix Mantilla – Mantilla is a former Spanish professional player who holds the fifth spot in this illustrious list.

The Spaniard has had a 44.5% break-point conversion rate in his career.
