Nevertheless, there still appears to be a subtle change round of his long lasting team. Maybe not necessarily for the better. Is this owing to Ivan Lendle's influence or something else?
With regards to the PR team, I had also heard that Andy is disappointed with the post-US effort to obtain new and/or increased sponsorships. Are they still in negotiations?
I know what you mean,but I'm not sure it's anything we need to worry about yet.Matt and Jez have often divided the travell-y bits between them,and America is Jez's home base,where his girlfriend lives and everything,so in that sense it'd only make sense for him to be the one to be there.
Judy,Will,Kim,Andy's friend Rob-they're all still there,as is Dani Vallverdu of course.We're just so used to seeing the same faces at all the matches that it feels odd to not see them!
I think really it's the disappearance of Matt Gentry and Louise Irving (who was always there) that makes it more noticeable-if they were still there,and we had the explanations for Andy Ireland and Matt Little's non-appearance,I don't think things would appear so changed.I could be wrong,of course-the only ones who relly know what's going on with Andy and his team are Andy and his team after all!-but that's my take on things.
I don't think Ivan has really tried to change Andy's team too much.The only thing I've ever heard about that is that he said to Andy,about when playing overseas,to make sure that everyone travelling with him had a purpose for being there.
I heard the same thing,about Andy's disappointment in that regard.Yep,negotiations are still on-going,though he's still continuing to be managed by them for now.Here's a couple articles on it:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/tennis/article-2294505/Bidding-war-breaks-Andy-Murray-Laura-Robson.htmlhttp://www.tennisnow.com/Blogs/Industry-Insider/March-2013/Andy-Murray,-Laura-Robson-at-center-of-internation.aspx
Actually,just mentioning Rob,does anyone know what he actually does?I've seen him around for years at matches and practices,but I've never known.I know he's often credited with running Andy's website,but someone asked him about it on twitter and he said he wasn't in charge of it,that they'd have to talk to Andy's management about it.Does anyne know does he actually have a role on the team or is he there just to be a supportive friend?Not that theres anything wrong with that-I've just always been curious.
