We can't all be right, but we could all be wrong ... Very Happy
Hmm, I still think my comment is technically correct even though it now seems it won't be happening if Overend is to be believed.

I think something is afoot, but I don't honestly think it is Lendl.

Interesting developments here, Andy obviously wants to try and clarify his coaching situation – ie, none at all for the time being!
Got no idea who he has got lined up though – wouldn’t be surprised if he came out and said nobody. I almost feel he needs to get a bit of motivation back before he commits to appointing a new coach. I think that might be someway off

Murray is unlikely to ever get good results on clay (lacks the instinctive kind of movement required on that surface), so he might as well Do a Roddick and just concentrate on surfaces that suit him.
 We were told by one of the Sky gurus a few weeks ago that the clay surface was more difficult for Andy and his split kneecap as a great deal of strain was put on it by the necessity to slide correctly on the court, so there is a possible reason why clay is not a favourite if this most important movement is difficult and he cannot move with the same freedom as he does on hard court or grass.

Always intrigues me when the subject of Murray's poor movement on clay comes up ... kind of surprising considering he spent so much time training in Spain during his formative years.

Looks as though my post on the 'Lendl' thread about all this being pure media speculation could have been correct.  Then again, given the wide publicity this news had, along with its resultant calls from various pundits telling Andy yet again what he should do, may have caused the Murray camp to clam up, hence their response to Overend.  They aren't likely to say anything about the appointment of a new coach, whether Lendl or otherwise, until a deal has finally been struck.

Whatever, I agree that something is definitely afoot, otherwise why did Andy sack Corretja - and that just before the start of the clay-court season?  However, that's the best news to come out of this so far.  Not only did Corretja fail to turn up at a GS (possiby unprecedented for a coach) but he was clearly unable to pull Andy out of his present slump.

Now all we can do is to wait for Andy the Enigma to tell us exactly what his next move is.

You're going to eat your words when he retires with 6 FOs, and Phillippe Chatrier is renamed Andy Murray Court.

Maybe! But any coach worth his salt would not leave his charge at a Slam

That blog of Overend's was as terrible as ever.  The guy has no talent whatsoever.  A first year film and media student at most joe blogg's universities would do a better job.....I would disregard everything he says to be honest.

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.

I just wanted to add the timing is important here.  Andy needs to have someone in place for the period before Wimbledon.  If a change was to be made, then this is the correct time...

Good posting!


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."
