Sorry ..that is not correct. Lendl was actually number 1 in the world for 17 weeks of 1983. He was actually number 1 as late as December the 11th that year.
NB I am interpreting 'never got beyond' to mean 'never got a higher ranking'....but now I wonder if you meant 'never got a lower ranking'...if you did, sorry 'bout that.
