Possibly, but to say it in such a matter-of-fact way is a bit much. Lendl had Conners, Mac, Borg (for a bit), Wilander, Becker, Edberg, Vilas, Cash, Mecir, Gerulaitis. An aging Lendl also had many wins over the new generation of Agassi, Sampras, Martin, Chang, and Courier. That's an incredibly strong field, about as tough as it gets. It's at least pretty close.
