The titel is intended to discribe his  general condition in this part of his carreer, it's not about his condition at this moment, am I right?

Yeah

Ivan Lendl stresses importance of Andy Murray ranking rise

Andy Murray's hopes of winning the French Open and future Grand Slams will improve if he can become world number two, according to his coach Ivan Lendl.

If Murray wins the Sony Open in Miami, the Scot will overtake Roger Federer to go second behind Novak Djokovic.

"It's important to get many points and hopefully it will lead to potentially advantageous seedings at the French and Wimbledon," Lendl told BBC Sport.

"That's where the biggest advantage of Andy getting to number two would be."

Murray has been ranked second in the world before, for three weeks in August and September 2009, and his current run at number three began last September.

But his maiden Grand Slam title at the 2012 US Open and a run to January's Australian Open final has helped him overtake Rafael Nadal, who has been severely hampered by injury.

Djokovic currently leads the rankings from Federer, Murray and Nadal - and if those players still comprise the top four by the French Open, which starts on 26 May, Murray will be seeded to play one of them in the semi-finals.

However, if Nadal is overtaken by then and Murray leapfrogs Federer, there is a chance the Briton will be on the other side of the draw to all three and thus avoid them until the final.

Equally, though, it would be possible that seven-time champion Nadal could land in Murray's half and face him in the quarter-finals.

"The most important thing would be if Rafa is not in top form," said Lendl. "Then it becomes very tricky because you can be unlucky and play him in the quarters.

"Or you could be lucky and have Novak, Roger and Rafa in the other half of the draw, so that's where the biggest advantage of Andy getting to number two would be.

"The draw will be really important. If Andy can get to number two and be seeded second, have a relatively freer path and the others play among themselves and take their physical and mental energy from each other, then the chances improve - providing Andy can do his job and beat the others."

Lendl has been working with Murray since the start of 2012 and he is happy with how their partnership is developing.

"He is taking care of matches a bit easier at times," the 53-year-old explained.

"He also is steadier in his results and doesn't seem to get as many downs as he did before, and I'm pleased with that.

"I just enjoy working with Andy. He's a good person, a good player obviously and a good guy. Just being together and having fun is the enjoyable part."

Lendl won eight Grand Slam titles in his career - a haul that included three French Opens but no Wimbledons - and he believes Murray is better equipped than he was to make the transition from clay to grass.

"He's a different player than I am," added the Czech former world number one, now a United States citizen. "He's much more skilled on grass - he can play the French and be ready for Wimbledon.

"For me, it took much longer to get to the level I needed to be on grass to be competitive on Wimbledon. So I'm not worried about it for Andy. He's the other way, he needs more time on clay."

Thanks, Angie.

Really shows how tough it is for Andy and other players to get the balance of training/health/lifestyle correct.
I liked what he said about Heather Watson and Bernard Tomic.

Thanks for the Lendl article, Dani.

As much as Andy publicly downplays the importance of getting to #2, looks like Lendl has other ideas. It is clearly advantageous going forward. crossfingers

^ I'm falling a little in love with Ivan  wub

Not strange, looking at this video I was surpised by the simularities between Lendl and Am, also in this view; they both look closed and agressive (not happy) on court and show the opposite in an interview; twinkling eyes, humor, authentic...

Andy Murray seeking to enhance his business portfolio (£) http://thetim.es/XnbKgI

Haven't read it all because of (£), but can see "Mahesh Bhupathi, the Indian doubles specialist and budding entrepreneur who is retiring from the ATP Tour at the end of the year, and Ugo Colombini, the Italian agent, are ready to join forces with XIX Entertainment"

Colombini is also Delpo's manager apparently.
