Andy Murray will name his new coach tomorrow, the two-time Grand Slam champion announced on Twitter.
Ivan Lendl and the British No.1 mutually parted company on March 19, ending a hugely successful three-year partnership. It began in December 2011, when Murray had already reached three Grand Slam finals, but failed to win a set.
The appointment of Lendl, an eight-time Slam champion, was a crucial step in Murray ending disappointments at the final hurdle. After losing the 2012 Wimbledon final to Roger Federer, the man from Dunblane went on to win the Olympics, the US Open and last summer’s Wimbledon title.
Issues with a persistent back problem has caused Murray to slip to eighth in the world rankings, but he is excited about the prospect of a fresh start.
Earlier today he tweeted: “And two avoid confusion like last time I will be announcing my new coach tomorrow #pumped.”
It’s likely Lendl’s replacement will be a former tennis player with a big reputation because of the glory the Czech masterminded.
The upcoming French Open will be a difficult tournament to win because of Rafael Nadal’s expertise on clay, but defending his trophy at SW19 is a realistic prospect, where Murray will receive advice from a different source.
