This shows that at Montreal in 1981, Connors was still ahead of Lendl.
Connors (3), Lendl (4) by then, despite his disastrous Wimbledon.
And there we go. That's it. Lendl surpassed Connors after Montreal by winning the tournament. So we can date Lendl's start at 3 back to Montreal, August 10th, 1981.
Connors has from August 3rd 1981- June 4th 1974 in the top 3, some 7 years, 2 months, or 372 weeks.

"Love has nothing to do with what you're expecting to get, only what you're expecting to give - which is everything. What you receive in return varies, but that really has no connection with why you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving." - K. Hepburn.
