Coach Ivan Lendl explains what led to reunion with Andy Murray

Coach Ivan Lendl reveals Andy Murray contacted him and made it clear he has no time to waste and that's why he wanted to reunite with the coach that guided him to Grand Slam success. In early March, Murray announced he was reuniting with Lendl.

After adding Lendl to his team, Murray won his first Grand Slam at the 2012 US Open and his first Wimbledon title came the following year. Murray and Lendl split in 2014 but reunited in 2016 and that's when Murray won his second Wimbledon and became the No.

1 for the first time in his career. "Andy said one thing, he said 'Look I don't know how much time I have left and I want to go with people I know what I'm going to get,'" Lendl told The Daily Mail. "That makes perfect sense.

We talked about it and decided we would give it a try."

Lendl satisfied with how Murray performed against Daniil Medvedev

Murray defeated Federico Delbonis in the Miami first round, before he was handed a 6-4 6-2 loss by No.

1 seed Medvedev. "As stupid as it sounds, I didn't know what to expect. But yes I was surprised pleasantly," Lendl admitted. "He played a really good match two nights ago. I thought today's match was a lot closer than the score indicated, even though he had no break points, but he was in a lot of games to thirty and so on.

The rallies were good. If he had served better it would have helped." Meanwhile, Murray admitted that Lendl believing in him means a lot to him. "I know a lot of people had probably lost belief in me and what I can do, so for him to still believe that I can achieve great results helps me a lot with my confidence," Murray said.
