Lendl holds the record at the MSG for the Masters tournament.Except Borg, who beat him in his first final, in 1980, he did beat all other contemporary greats: Mac in the 1982 Final and the 1981 and 1988 semifinals, Gerulaitis in his first title there, the epic 1981 final, Boris Becker to whom he lost the other epic final of the decade´s Masters, in 1988, but beat him two consecutive years ( 1985 and 1986) and Jimmy Connors in various semifinals.Three consecutive semis.He also blasted away Wilander in the 1987 final.He played ALL the finals from 1980 till 1988.Amazing. Of course, he beat other players, such as Noah,Gomez,Vilas ( twice), Gene Mayer and, as said, only Borg remained out of reach even if they could only play once, since Borg retired at the end of 1981. Indoor conditions, no wind, regular but very fast bounce, and the fact that he was sharper at the start of the year than his opponents, suited him so well.His thundering serve and Fh were never as dominating as in the blue carpet. How could he do it? What made the difference? WHAT KEPT HIM GOING?
