Lendl versus Wilander French Open 1987. Federer versus Nadal French Open 2008. Both are highlights. Not just the speed of shot, look at how much more court they must cover. Lendl's backhand in slow mo. Fed's. Lendl had a great backhand but Fed's is better. Plus, he has to hit his backhand under conditions Lendl didn't. Fed has a longer swing, more racket head speed, and a more natural and complete kinetic chain = more power. Compared to Fed's backhand Lendl's looks methodical and deliberate. I almost consider Lendl to be the Davydenko of his day, a guy with top 50 talent who just completely maxed out his potential by methodically plugging every hole in his game, refining and grooving his technique to superhuman levels, great footwork and fitness, and incredible will and shot discipline. In my mind guys like that can be number 1, but their robotic strokes (as beautiful as they might be... and like Davydenko, I always thought the beauty of Lendl's strokes were always underrated and if he both Davydenko and Lendl looked more like Fernando Verdasco the very same motion might be described as being pretty...) can never match the almost unexplainable power generated by people with a true genius for the game. The guys who don't look like robots but instead like dancers out there, their bodies just naturally doing the things that add that extra 5 or 10 mph's on shots.
