London: Andy Murray said on Sunday he is reuniting with former coach Ivan Lendl, the man who helped the British player to win his two Grand Slam titles.
Lendl was Murray’s coach for two years until 2014.
In that time, Murray won the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon the following year. Murray also won the gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
“I had two very successful years working with Ivan, he’s single-minded and knows what it takes to win the big events,” Murray said.
“I’m looking forward to Ivan joining the team again and helping me try and reach my goals.”
No.2-ranked Murray lost the French Open final to Novak Djokovic last week. Since splitting with Lendl, Murray has lost three Grand Slam finals, all to Djokovic, the man he had beaten in his two Grand Slam successes. In total, Murray has lost eight of his 10 Grand Slam finals.
Lendl will be with Murray for the grass-court season starting with the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club in London from Monday and culminating with Wimbledon, which begins on June 27....
