Lendl was still number 3 in the world when he played against Sampras at the 1990 US Open. A few weeks before that, Lendl was world number 1. Lendl was also the reigning Australian Open champion. Oh, and then there's the small fact of Lendl having reached the previous 8 US Open finals in a row from 1982 to 1989.
