With several legends contesting for the biggest titles on the ATP in the 1980s and 1990s, there were a few fantastic rivalries. McEnroe-Lendl was somewhat overshadowed by the trio of rivalries involving two of McEnroe, Borg, and Connors, but it was a brilliant clash in its own right. Lendl would up winning the head-to-head 21-15, but it took a series of epic matches and no shortage of drama to get to the end of the road.
