Ah, that makes more sense. I'll agree with that. As someone else pointed out, Lendl was kind of unlucky the Australian switched to hard when it did - he was already past his peak level of play. He might have one or two more hard court slams if he'd played his entire career with two hard court majors. But I agree Djokovic will overtake Lendl (at least as a hard court player) by the end of his career - if he hasn't already.
