'Lendl could help Zverev in mindset for Grand Slams' - Andy Murray

Ivan Lendl is not set to be Alexander Zverev's coach anytime soon, but the tennis legend could be a sort of consultant. The former world No. 1 Andy Murray, interviewed by Tennis Channel, suggested that a working relationship between Lendl and Zverev could work. 'Ivan's experience as a player is great.

He played for a number of years at the top of the game, Sascha has spoken about some struggles in the Slams over the last couple of years, so I think Ivan would be able to help there, in the mindset, approach to these events.

Sascha is already No. 3-4 in the world, won Masters Series, been very consistent on the Tour, looking to improve in the Slams', said Murray, who worked with Lendl until last year.' Commenting on his physical condition after his three-set win win over Kyle Edmund, Murray added: 'I feel better than I did during the grasscourt season, which is positive,” said Murray, who played three matches in late June but withdrew from Wimbledon as it came too early in his recovery process.

So things are still getting better and I’ve lasted fairly well through two long matches here on a tough surface on the body so hopefully, I can keep healing up from the matches and feeling better. Today I wanted to dictate more today than in the previous match where I played too defensive.

I was also less nervous today.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer's former agent reveals worst part in working with the Swiss
