Tomas Berdych has expressed interest in having Ivan Lendl as his coach since his countryman left Andy Murray. But unfortunately for Berdych, Lendl isn’t available.
I had a great time talking about tennis with Ivan Lendl today. Result? Ivan would like to help me, but he is too busy…

Berdych talked about working with Lendl at Wimbledon, and mentioned him again at the US Open last month. “Well, I think it’s something which I was thinking about definitely,” Berdych said in New York. “I think just needs probably the right time and timing to make it happen. Let’s see. I hope for the time is gonna come up. Fingers crossed.”
With Lendl not coming aboard, will the 29-year-old Berdych ever win a Slam? He made just one Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in 2010 and reached the semifinals at three other Slams including the 2014 Australian Open. But the Czech, who has arguably more game than 2014 Slam winners Stan Wawrinka and Marin Cilic, just can’t put together a complete event.
Ranked 7th, Berdych is playing in Stockholm this week hoping to make the London Finals.
