With Ivan Lendl on board, 'confident' Andy Murray sets eyes on Wimbledon title

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray is confident he still has "good tennis left in him" as he is hoping to make a deep Wimbledon run. In the opening week of the grass season, Murray reached the Stuttgart final before losing to Matteo Berrettini.

En route to reaching the Stuttgart final, Murray beat Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios. Unfortunately, Murray sustained an abdominal strain in the Stuttgart final and that contributed to him losing the final in three sets.

“I think I showed a couple weeks ago [in Stuttgart] that there was still good tennis left in me,” Murray said, per the ATP website. “I beat a guy [Stefanos Tsitsipas] in the top five in the world. I was neck-and-neck with [Matteo] Berrettini, who is one of the best grass-court players in the world before his injury.

I played well against [Nick] Kyrgios, as well”.

Lendl guided Murray to three Grand Slam titles in the past and the top ranking. It it not a secret that Murray wants to do well at Wimbledon this year and he believes that having Lendl by his side could help him in his goal.

“I know the tennis is in there; I just need to bring it out during the event now,” said Murray. “Obviously having Ivan on my team helps. We've had a lot of success in the past. We know each other well. He still believes in me.

There's not loads of people out there that have done over this last period, and he has. That definitely helps me”. Murray suffered a blow when he cotnracted an abdominal injury in the Stuttgart final as he was forced to skip Queen's.

However, he now appears to be fit. “I've been able to gradually progress my training this week and got to play a few sets, a lot of points,” he said. “The last few days have been good”. Murray plays James Duckworth in the Wimbledon first round.
