The former American player, John McEnroe, would not be surprised at all if Andy Murray and Ivan Lendl get associated again in near future.
Lendl coached Murray for about a couple of years and helped the Scot in winning many titles during that period. But, because of the lack of time, he left his position a few months back.
After that, Murray appointed the former female player Amelie Mauresmo as his head coach which took most of the people by surprise if not all.
Murray’s form has got even poorer since Mauresmo taking over as his coach and thus, it’s being rumoured that the two would be parting ways pretty soon
According to McEnroe, Mauresmo has not had enough time to be able to make an impact on Murray’s game. It’s only after a few more months that her work can be judged properly.
When asked about how good or bad the Frenchwoman has been as Murray’s coach, McEnroe said, “Well, I can’t answer this question at this point of time. She has just come in and you don’t expect somebody to make thing happens straightaway. She needs some more months, but, if I had been at Andy’s place, I would have continued working with Lendl.”
“Amelie has not been a bad coach in the last one year or so. She has helped a couple of players and they have done well. She can do that to Andy as well, but, he will have to be patient with her.”
“However, I would not be surprised if Andy brings Lendl back. That’s very much possible.”
Murray has almost become a villain in the eyes of the fans in Britain after that loss against Grigor Dimitrov. He has been receiving criticism from all quarters.
