Ivan Lendl, the part-time coach of Andy Murray, is set to fly to Europe next week in order to help the world number one, reports the Daily Mail. Murray, 29, is coming off this week's loss suffered to lucky loser Borna Coric in the last-16 stage of the Madrid Masters.
The British tennis player hasn't had a great season thus far in 2017. He will be hoping to catch some rhythm at next week's Rome Masters. Murray and Lendl will have a full week to prepare for the biggest clay-court event of the season -- Roland Garros.
Though the two have been seeing each other very often this season, they have had teleconferences regularly. ''I speak to him pretty much every Monday, I spoke to him three times the week before Monte Carlo,'’ Murray revealed. '‘I speak to him maybe a couple of times per week.’' It remains to be seen will the presence of Lendl help Murray to get over the slump.
