Andy Murray announced Friday that he and Ivan Lendl have parted ways yet again.

“I’m thankful to Ivan for all his help and guidance over the years, we’ve had great success and learned a lot as a team,” Murray posted on his website. “My focus now is on getting ready for Australia with the team I have in place and getting back to competing.”

Said Lendl, “I wish Andy well going forward. We had a great run and a lot of fun.”

After splitting in March of 2014, the two reunited in 2016.

As Murray continues his recover from a hip injury, he’ll remain under the guidance of Jamie Delgado.

5 Comments for Murray, Lendl Split Up Again

Margot Says:

Groundhog day.
Not sure how this will impact.


Helen Says:

@Margot: Not necessarily a bad thing. They were not spending much time together and Lendl’s getting older now and doesn’t want to do the tour anymore. Nothing lasts forever and Andy may need something new to kick-start his season. Delgado has always been there also and is his main coach throughout the season. I hope it works-out for Andy.


madmax Says:

Margot,

What is going on? What happened? Family perhaps?

They make such a great team.


Margot Says:

TBH madmax, I’m really not sure how relevant to Andy Lendl was last year. Jamie Delgardo has become far more important and I’d be really worried if he, or Matt Little, left. Mark Bender is/was pretty key too.
Never forgave Lendl for quitting the last time and this is a bit deja vu.


Helen Says:

Margot: I agree but maybe this is for the best. It was Lendl who apparently insisted on Andy doing a brutal winter training block after he’s reached number one last year – instead of resting. It may have been better had Andy rested instead because soon after he got shingles, which is a sure sign of being run-down physically. Lendl’s done some great work with Andy but maybe it’s for the best they part during this period of rehab….
