Lendl is widely considered one of the 10 best men’s tennis players of all time, and one of the most dominant players of the 1980s, holding the No. 1 ranking in the world for 270 weeks in the 80s. He won 94 singles titles, eight majors, and was a runner-up a record 11 times. He has also gained success as a coach, helping Andy Murray win three major titles.
