A popular thought among everyone is that Lendl dominated his rivals. That's because his superior head to head record, being No. 1 most of the time etc. That's what Pete Sampras regularly says. But look closely, did Lendl dominate Becker? The H2H is 11-10 in Lendl's favour. But a look at the Slams it tells 86' Wimby Final - Becker 88' Wimby SF - Becker 89' Wimby SF - Becker 89' US Final - Becker 91' AO Final - Becker 92' US 4th round - Lendl Becker defeated him in 3 slam finals, 2 slam semis and lost only 1 4th round. Had he won those 5 matches, Lendl probably would go on to win 4 more Slams. In Year end masters final, Lendl won '85 and '86 final while Becker won '88.
