Mats Wilander says Andy Murray does not need former Grand Slam champions

Tennis: Former world no.1 from Sweden Mats Wilander has ruled out the possibility that he will coach Andy Murray and has said that Murray does not need to think about former Grand Slam champions. According to 7-time Grand Slam champion Wilander, Murray needs someone who has a better second service than him, as he said, “I don’t necessarily think Andy needs to be thinking about former grand slam champions.

But I think he needs to be thinking about somebody who has a much better second serve than I do, who knows about second serves, maybe to work with this person for six months, or on and off. “He also needs to be looking at himself in the mirror and saying, ‘do I really think winning tennis matches is more important now than before I won my first grand slam?’ If it isn’t, then it is to other players, and then you’re in trouble.” Murray had recently parted ways with another former world no.1 Ivan Lendl and the reigning Wimbledon champion is currently without a coach, but he is looking to have someone before French Open begins.
