That would've been his best shot, I think. If not for Cash, he probably would've squared off against Connors. Dangerous on grass, yes, but well past his prime at 35. That would've been an interesting one...particularly since Connors had pushed Becker to the brink a week or two earlier at Queens....edge to Lendl, but maybe not by all that much.
