McEnroe's last win over Lendl was just after this, a 6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 7-5 victory in the semi finals of the 1989 WCT Dallas event.
Thanks. I was sure Lendl had beaten Mac in Australia that year.1989 was quite a good year for McEnroe with some better showings like making the Wimbledon semi's and winning the WCT Finals beating Lendl along the way. I think John finished that year at no.4.
