Description

Ivan Lendl (Czech pronunciation: ; born March 7, 1960) is a retired Czech-American professional tennis player. He is often considered among the greatest in the sport's history. He was the world No. 1 for 270 weeks in the 1980s and finished his career with 94 singles titles. At the majors he won eight titles and was runner-up a record 11 times. He also won seven year-end championships.

Lendl's game was built around his forehand, hit hard with heavy topspin, and his success is cited as a primary influence in popularizing this "power baseline" style. As a tennis coach, he has helped Andy Murray win three major titles and reach the No. 1 ranking.
