I never had the chance to watch Lendl during his prime, only a little bit of him in the early 90's. But i get the impression that he was a cool customer on court who rarely got rattled, and a hard-working professional off court. Now we know he has the infamous record of losing his first 4 slam finals and 6 of his first 7 finals. He ended his career with a pretty abysmal conversion rate of 8 from 19 finals appearances. My question is how come he had such a poor conversion rate, was it because of fatigue due to tough previous matches, or is it nerves that prevented him from producing his best tennis, maybe the opponent just rose to the occasion or some other completely different factor. Any Lendl experts/fans care to shed some light on this enigma?
