Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has announced a shock reunion with coach Ivan Lendl. Lendl was the coach that helped Murray win his maiden Grand Slam title at the 2012 US Open and also guided the Scot to his first Wimbledon title the following year.
After achieving big success together, Murray and Lendl went their separate ways in 2014 as Murray hired Amelie Mauresmo to be his new coach. As Murray wasn't happy with his result in the next year and a half, he reunited with Lendl in 2016.
Murray then enjoyed the best season of his career as he won a total of nine titles in 2016 and also reached the No. 1 ranking for the first time in his career. Also in 2016, Murray won his second Wimbledon title, the gold at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics and his first title at the Atp Finals.
Murray and Lendl split in 2017 and since then Murray hasn't had any notable results on the biggest stage. Murray to work with Lendl for a third time Murray fired his long-term coach Jamie Delgado after the 2021 season and added Jan de Witt on a trial basis.
Murray wasn't happy with the work done with de Witt so the two ended their partnership after Australia. Murray, 34, has made it clear he wants to make some big results in 2022 - specifically make deep runs at the Grand Slam events.
Murray recently explained what keeps him going. "Because I have goals, and I believe I can play much better. Since I came back from the surgery, I have scored wins over Zverev, Berrettini, Hurkacz, Norrie, Alcaraz, and a number of players in the top 25/ top 30 in the world," Murray said.
"I think I've beaten 12 or 13 of them. The consistency is not there and I'm certainly aware of that. But there have been times when I have played well. I want to try and get my coaching situation sorted. Hopefully, that will help me get back my consistency as well."
