Ivan Lendl announced yesterday that he is resigning from his role as coach for Alexander Zverev.

Lendl and Zverev hooked up last August, but the results have been far less than fruitful.

And Zverev has commented on Lendl’s unwillingness to travel with the young German star.

Zverev is currently in the quarterfinals of his home event in Hamburg this week.

5 Comments for Lendl Ends Coaching Run With Zverev

RZ Says:

No surprise here. Lendl hadn’t wanted much time on the road (his reasoning for leaving Murray both times) so it was only a matter of time before he and Zverev parted ways.

RZ: Re: Andy: I agree that Lendl didn’t want to spend too much time on the road because he was involved with the development of his daughters. But – there’s more too it re. Zverev – quite simply success did not result from the partnership – good player though Zverev can be – he never seemed to progress with any regularity whereas Andy did.

Well if your coach is spending a lot of your time talking about golf and his dog then…no

j-kath Says:

Theres marcucci: I wouldn’t have guessed Lendl was much of a “social” companion-coach – evidently you know more than I do. I’ve always seen him as a guy with an eye on the ball with everything else stored as personal….if I got stuck on a desert island and had to choose only one companion he would not be on my list.

Telperion Says:

We should also bear in mind that while Lendl wanted Zverev to work harder on the training grounds, the guy answered nonchalantly with a “I’m the boss here”. I feel this is Zverev’s loss due to immaturity.
