Andy Murray Reunites With Ivan Lendl!

In more coaching news, reports out of the UK indicate that Andy Murray will again be working with Ivan Lendl.

Lendl has coached Murray twice before — most recently June 2016-November 2017 and before then in December 2012-April 2014.

Lendl said he wanted to spend time with his family and play golf over the rigors of travelling on the tour. But the former Czech star has changed his mind.

Murray, who split with Jaimie Delgado in December, has been trialing new coaches since, including former coach Dani Vallverdu. Under Lendl, Murray won three Grand Slams plus Olympic gold.

The two will hook-up in Florida after Miami, then Lendl will join Murray for the grass season.

The 34-year-old Murray nearly retired a few years ago due to his hip, but the former No. 1 has showed signs of life with wins over Alexander Zverev, Jannik Sinner, Reilly Opelka, Nikolaz Basilashvili, and Hubert Hurkacz in this comeback which began in August 2020, though he doesn’t have a Top 20 win this season.

Murray has climbed back up to No. 84 in the world and is playing well, but the hiring of Lendl signals the Scot thinks he can return close to the top of the game and make a push at Wimbledon where he made the third round last summer.

Murray will return next week at Indian Wells, then Miami, then train with Lendl before the grass season. He is not planning to play on the clay.

autoFilter Says:

This strikes me as kind of big (and intriguing) news. I wasn’t sure what to think after a couple of less than stellar results this year, but if Murray is feeling resilient enough to rekindle this arrangement, I am hopeful and excited for what’s to come.

skeezer Says:

I agree. C’mon Andy, one last great run at it. 34 and hopefully a resilient hip.

Cool, wish them the best!
