ATP - Murray says Lendl has improved his forehand

World no. 4 Andy Murray has said that his new coach Ivan Lendl has helped made his forehand stronger. "If you watch what it was like before and what it is like now, it is pretty major," Murray said. "It's not a major change but when you look at it, it's very different in terms of the way that I am moving my feet.

This week I have been hitting it really, really well and hopefully I can keep that up. It makes a big difference, especially going into the clay court season because it's probably one of the most important shots on clay.

I never used to make that many mistakes on my forehand, it's just a bigger weapon now than it was before and that's important, to keep developing weapons in different ways to win points and shorten points as well ...

the more free points you can get, the less toll matches are going to take on your body." Murray is seeded to meet world no. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semi finals of the Indians Wells Masters series event this week. The Scot beat Djokovic in the Dubai semi finals earlier this month.
