There head to head is 4-3 favoring Lendl (however there last match came way past their primes when Lendl was in his last season and Wilander was coming back from a long break from tennis a year Lendl would finish 54 and Wilander would finish 127) Both have 3 French Open Titles and 2 French Open Runner ups and are 1-1 in finals there against each other. Lendl has 28 clay titles to Wilander 20 clay titles (not sure of the presitge of the titles as there was no master series and stuff but both have a handful of big name ones) Lendl however played 16 full years Wilander 12...13 if you count 1991 when he was burnt out. Lendl has the better clay record but Wilander hurt his with an attempted comeback to the tour after nearly missing 2 years of tennis Lendl is 81% Wilander is 77% Lendl has an 81.5% at France while Wilander has an 83.9% at France Wilander won his 1st French Open he entered Both had 40+ win seasons on clay Lendls best was 44-5 and Wilander's best was 42-2 and in both of those years with their best records they did not win the French Open..though I am not sure of the exact results of all their years with clay records but over their best years I have Lendl edging the percentage by about 1 at 87 to 86 over their best years. So although the edge is clearly there for Lendl it seems to be a small edge and if it is to go on French Opens it is obvious Wilander should be held as better he has the better results and the better record but overall Lendl has some tiny little edges but there are numerous factors. Wilander after wrecking Lendl in 88 lost motivation and hit a spiral and was off the tour within a matter of a year and a half. So my question is does Wilander not get that much credit if you take away his burnout years 91 on he has about the same winning percentage as Lendl on clay. Just in their primes the two seem pretty dead even on clay and I don't understand how one is so easily chosen over the other and no questions is asked. Lendl soley seems to get the edge because he played more than Wilander is that fair? I guess this is all started as when we mention clay court GOATs of the open era you hear Nadal, Kureten and Lendl constantly yet there is not any love for Wilander..
