Andy Murray opened up today about the stunning end of his coaching relationship with Ivan Lendl. Under the tennis great, the gold at the London Olympics, 2012 US Open and Wimbledon last year, ending a 77-year-old drought for British men.
“We sat down after I finished in Indian Wells,” “Ivan wants to do other things. The time required I think to make a difference is more than he could offer right now. It’s a shame and it’s a tough one for me because this is the best part of my career.
“I have a lot to thank him for he made a huge difference to my game and also to my team. He’s been a big part of my life really so it’s tough.”
Murray says after Miami and then Davis Cup he’ll think about a new coaching hire. And Miami is not only where he has a second home but also where happens to be the defending champion.
The 26-year-old hasn’t won a title since 2013 Wimbledon, but he’s quick to remind people that he did have a “significant” surgery.
“I just keep working hard and hope to start to improve my results.”
