Lendl used to crack jokes all the time, his portrayal as "Ivan the Terrible" etc is mostly due to the Cold War and his relentless "show no mercy" style. I don't think he cared much for his public image and even if he did he could do little about it. I certainly think that he did not premeditate and shape his own image.

Of course, in real life, he was very funny, even a little bit goofy type of guy.
