I don't think he's his biggest rival, but I always felt Becker sort of played the foil to Lendl, much like Nadal did to Federer. Lendl was superior to Becker as a player, just as I feel Federer is superior to Nadal, yet Becker won the majority of the big matches....although Lendl led the overall head to head 11-10, he was 1-5 in majors and 0-3 at Wimbledon.
