I can't see Ivan going anywhere while Andy remains driven. They both seem to love winning.

I just think there is tremendous respect, and if it doesn't sound soppy, affection, between them. I'm sure that two such strong-willed men have tough days, but on the whole it seems to work beautifully.

I think people can talk about shots forever, but what I truly believe Lendl has brought to Andy is belief. I think he has helped Andy to realise that he is good enough to be at the top, that he deserves to be. To my mind that is hugely significant.
Totally agree with you teejay, neither will be satisfied until they have many more Masters and Major titles.

Golf, not Murray, has Lendl's full attention at the moment

Ivan Lendl's hectic schedule left him little time to prepare for the 31st Connecticut Senior Open.

Just over a week ago, Lendl was sitting courtside watching tennis history as his student, Andy Murray, became the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

"For the two weeks, it was crazy," Lendl said after finishing his opening round at Shennecossett Golf Course. "Everybody kept talking about Fred Perry and 77 years, so it was absolutely nuts. ... Andy's a great player, obviously. He's proving it."

Lendl, who won eight major tennis titles during his stellar career, has coached Murray for just 18 months. Last year he spent about 26 weeks working with his prized student.

Murray praised Lendl for his breakthrough victory, although Lendl declined to take credit for Murray's win.

"Maybe he would have won the same or more without me, maybe not," Lendl said. "We'll never know."

Murray set off a wild and emotional celebration at the All England Club when he finally put away top-seeded Novak Djokovic in straight sets.

Yet the stoic Lendl remained calm and took a few mental notes.

"I look at what needs to be done and what work I have in the future with him instead of getting caught up in the moment," Lendl said. "There's nothing I can do about it once he's on the court anyway. I can just dissect it the best I can and take mental notes what he should be doing so he gets better."
