Murray splits with coach Lendl

Murray splits with coach Lendl

Murray came back last week to play an exhibition match against Roger Federer, although it was clear that he is still far from rid of the chronic hip problems that have plagued him since making the French Open quarter finals.

Andy Murray and coach Ivan Lendl have both made a decision to end their partnership for a second time as the former world No.1 prepares to make his tennis comeback in Brisbane late next month. He never won Wimbledon having reached the final twice, but coached Murray for his two successes at the All England Club. He appointed Amelie Mauresmo, who went on to share coaching duties during her pregnancy with Jonas Bjorkman, but finally left the team in May 2016.

He added that he would continue to work with the rest of his existing team, including coach Jamie Delgado.

"It is hard. That's why, for me, having Jamie Delgado with me who is able to commit 35, 40 weeks of the year is very important. They don't always want to do it". The 30-year-old Scot has enjoyed all of his Grand Slam success under the guidance of Lendl, securing a second Wimbledon title last year and another Olympic title in the second instalment of their fruitful partnership.

He plans to enter a tournament in Brisbane, Australia, to prepare for the year's first Grand Slam tournament. All this will now continue without Lendl.

Murray intends to be ready for the start of next season in January, when the Australian Open is played, saying Friday: "My focus now is on getting ready for Australia with the team I have in place and getting back to competing".

Lendl said: "I wish Andy well going forward. We had a great run and a lot of fun", said Lendl, himself an eight-time Grand Slam victor as a player.
