Tennis Greats Head to Heads

So everyone loves to talk about how great the rivalry between McEnroe/Borg was but the only thing I've heard about their rivalry is McEnroe beating Borg 3 out of 4 grand slam finals. So I decided to see what their overall headtoheads were and see just how close it was. I hope history does not forget BorgvsMcEnroe simply because we just see the grand slam final results but not other grand slam or tournament meetings. Now I see this happening with Sampras' accomplishments being overshadowed by Federer's. It takes an all day rain delay for people like McEnroe, Carillo -- the people who create the history in the minds of the audience -- to remember just how great the past greats were and their rivalries, like the one shown between Agassi and Sampras today.


McEnroe vs. Lendl 8-3/21-15
McEnroe vs. Borg 3-1/7-7
McEnroe vs. Connors 6-3/20-14

Borg vs. Connors 5-3/13-8
Borg vs. Lendl 5-2/1-0

Lendl vs. Connors 5-3/22-13

Becker vs. Lendl 5-1/10-11
Becker vs. Edberg 1-3/25-10
Becker vs. Sampras 0-3/7-12

Sampras vs. Lendl 2-0/5-3
Sampras vs. Edberg 0-2/6-8

Lendl vs. Edberg 4-5/13-14

Sampras vs. Agassi 5-3/20-14
