Ivan Lendl is a legend in the history of tennis, and is credited with ushering in the era of the power game. He has also been given the sobriquet of "the greatest overachiever in the game" of tennis. Of course, many remember a famous quote attributed to him regarding Wimbledon:

"Grass is for cows."

I just happened upon this interview, conducted in May 2009 by The Times. It provides a fascinating and utterly absorbing insight into one of the most reclusive figures of the game. I hope you enjoy and appreciate it as much as I did.
