Hooray! Hooray! The curse of Corretja has been lifted
Thought you'd be pleased, BBH.
The fact is Andy is in a rut, but he will come out of it eventually, though probably not til Queen's and Wimby I would guess. The coaching issue has been on-going. There are no shortage of people who would like to work wirh Andy. He needs someone who will give him a right kick up the arse in my opinion. Andy needs to toughen up and just believe a little more. Lendl would be good, but there are a whole number of people who could make a difference. Personally I think Andy needs a "mentor". It is patently clear he has no patience for a full-time coach, Andy prefers to surround himself with people who do not challenge him. Someone like Sampras or Agassi on a part-time basis would be a dream....someone who Andy has complete respect for. Andy needs a fresh perspective on himself, his tennis, his destiny. He needs to be shown a different path, and for once truly believe in it. It will be interesting to see what happens.Tweet from Brad Gilbert in Tennis Talk
- "Murray is having a bit of a rough patch, repeat of last year, probably got hit harder this year. Just like a hangover, takes time to recover. He will come out of it. At every level, the core of success depends on the level of confidence."Comment from Andy in the Bleacher Report
- After his defeat by Bogolomov, Jr, Murray said of his coaching situation, "It's not anyone's fault for giving me wrong tactics or practising the wrong way. That's not the reason why I played like I did. So I'll have a think about it and see what I want to do. If I make a change, it won't be because of how I've played the last two matches."
