Q. I wanted to ask a general question if I could just about your life. You come
from Czechoslovakia, had your fabulous on court career and a really great
success in business and now in coaching. Aside from your family, what’s the best
part of being Ivan Lendl these days?
IVAN LENDL: Well, I haven’t really thought about it much. I think staying busy
and having something to do, something I like to do is always good, whether it is
being in tennis and working with Andy or playing some, or playing some golf
tournaments in the summer. All of that is fun.
Q. And obviously we have this trend now with great legends, great veterans
working with different players. Some have worked, some have clicked, certainly
you and Andy, others not to be mentioned are less so. What do you think the key
is in the coach and pupil relationship on the ATP Tour?
IVAN LENDL: I think the key, especially with the older guys who have played
successfully, is that, number one, what can that player or that coach offer to a
practical player, and also chemistry.
Q. And what’s been the key to your chemistry with Andy? Do you think in some
ways you guys are quite similar?
IVAN LENDL: Well, we had the unfortunate part we shared that both of us lost a
few majors before we won the first one.....
