Andy Murray says he feels in a good frame of mind heading into the Australian Open under the coaching of easygoing Amelie Mauresmo as the pair develop a greater understanding. Murray, a three-time runner-up at the Australian Open, had a surprise split with coach Ivan Lendl, then controversially hired former women's number one Mauresmo, last June. The two-time Grand Slam champion lost his Wimbledon title and briefly fell out of the top 10 for the first time in six years, but feels things are coming together under the Frenchwoman, who won the Melbourne title in 2006. "Last year, for me,…

"Rafael Nadal" beat Roger Federer in straight sets to advance to the Australian Open final[2014]. Nadal is now second on the list of players reaching Grand Slam finals, joining Ivan Lendl on 19 -- Federer leads the list with 24. Another Grand Slam title would lift Nadal to equal second on the all-time list with Pete Sampras, who was in the crowd for the match. "I tried a few things ... then again, Rafa does a good job of neutralizing you," Federer said. "So I guess at times I couldn't quite do what I wanted to do, but that's because of Rafa."

Nadal set to test Djokovic in Australia World number one Rafael Nadal will attempt to dethrone Novak Djokovic and put a new wave of celebrity coaches to the test when he returns to the Australian Open next week according to AFP. Nadal missed last year’s edition during a seven-month injury break with knee trouble before making a stunning comeback to win 10 titles in 2013, including the French Open and US Open. Now the rampant Spaniard will take aim at Djokovic’s three-year reign at Melbourne Park, the longest of the Open era, and try to avenge his epic, six-hour loss to the Serb in the 2012 final. He also arrives as the only “Big Four” player without a star coach, after Djokovic and Roger Federer, aping Andy Murray’s move in hiring Ivan Lendl, hooked up with Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg respectively. However, with Murray returning from injury and Federer now 32, the door could be open for a group of other contenders, led by Juan Martin Del Potro and David Ferrer. Nadal, still coached by his unc ...
Novak Djokovic recruits Boris Becker as coach -- Hiring a former Grand Slam champion as a coach is all the rage these days it would appear. Novak Djokovic is the latest to join the trend after appointing Boris Becker as the head of his coaching team just over a month before he starts the defense of his Australian Open title. Djokovic, ranked second in the world, follows in the footsteps of Andy Murray, who appointed Ivan Lendl as coach in 2011 before going on to win the 2012 U.S. Open and 2013 Wimbledon tournament. Becker will work alongside the Serbian's current coaching team, which includes Marian Vajda, Miljan Amanovic and Gebhard Phil-Gritsch. "I am really excited to have the opportunity to work with Boris," Djokovic said in a statement. "He is a true legend, someone who has great tennis knowledge and his experience will help me win new trophies from the Grand Slams and other tournaments. "Becker is a great person, too, and I am sure he will fit in our team in the best possible way. "Boris brings a ne ...
Novak Djokovic topped the rankings for the 100th week on Monday and he’s guaranteed to make it 101 (and equal Andre Agassi) when the list is updated next Monday. But that could be that for the Serb (for a few months at least) as Rafael Nadal prepares to pounce. It’s a sobering thought for a man who has won one Grand Slam title in 2013 and reached the final of two others, but even if Djokovic were to win every single one of his matches over the rest of the year, including at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, he would still almost certainly find himself as the world No 2. If he doesn’t win the title in China next week, he’ll drop off the top spot. Nadal is guaranteed returning to No 1 if he makes the final in Beijing and with zero points to defend over the rest of the year, only an injury that keeps the Spaniard out completely, it seems, would stop the switch from happening. Considering Nadal didn’t even play at the Australian Open because he was in the middle of a seven-month absence through in ...
Murray's performance yesterday has to be the best performance anyone will ever produce in a Grand Slam final. Murray will now head into the U.S. Open as the defending champion next month looking to retain his title and his next objective after that will be to take over Djokovic as the World No. 1 which will not be easy as Djokovic is an awesome player who will undoubtedly win many more Slams to add to the six he already possesses. But Murray is an exceptional player now and a different player since employing the legendary Ivan Lendl as his coach. Although Murray's whole team have played an important part in his success. Murray has won the Olympics, the U.S. Open and the Wimbledon title in the past 11 months in addition reaching four of the last Grand Slam finals which is phenomenal. Having said all that my tip for the U.S. Open is Djokovic while beating Murray in the final. I think Murray will win the Australian Open at the beginning of next year which will only leave him to win the French Open to complet ...
Djokovic wins longest ever Wimbledon semi-final Marathon man Novak Djokovic outlasted Juan Del Potro 7—5, 4—6, 7—6 (7—2), 6—7 (6—8), 6—3 on Friday to win the longest semi—final ever played at Wimbledon and reach his second final at the Championships. The world number one Serb, who won the 2011 title, will play the winner from second seed Andy Murray and Polish outsider Jerzy Janowicz. The second match was expected to stretch into the night and would come up against a potential 11 pm deadline for the end of play under the lights on Centre Court. Djokovic’s match lasted four hours, 43 minutes, shattering the previous mark for a men’s semi of four hours, one minute set in 1989 by Ivan Lendl and Boris Becker. It was the longest time Del Potro, who came to the contest with a damaged left knee but showed no signs of discomfort, had ever spent on a court in the heat of battle. Djokovic was a veteran of a record five—hour, 53—minute struggle in the 2012 Australian Open final, in which he b ...

I can't get into the Australian Open with Rafa Nadal not playing. To rub salt in the wounds, I saw a documentary just now on Rafa and how he had won everything there was to win in tennis by the age of 24.. He is most decidedly my favourite tennis player of all time. As it stands my own "top four" tennis players are: 1) Rafa Nadal, 2) Bjorn Borg, 3) Ivan Lendl and 4) John Mcenroe...
A quarter of a century ago, Ivan Lendl faced Bryan Roe at the Australian Open.
TENNIS:- Andy Murray says he wants coach Ivan Lendl to stay with him on a long-term basis, possibly for the next five years. The Scot hooked up with the Czech legend a year ago and in the past 12 months he won Olympic gold in London, his first major title at the US Open and reached the final at Wimbledon. Going into next month's Australian Open in Melbourne, Murray feels the partnership has proved its worth and should be extended. "Ivan and I have a very good relationship. It's very honest and open. That's why it has worked so well and why both of us are planning long term," he was quoted as saying in a number of national newspapers. "We spoke at the end of last year and it was much more short term - 'let's see how the first few months of the season go'. "Now it's: 'What are we going to be doing in four or five years' time?'" Murray also admitted that only since his Olympic heroics has he felt able to walk around with his head held high. "Since the Olympics I just feel a bit better about myself," he said. ...
HONG KONG, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Ivan Lendl threw up his own Iron Curtain on Wednesday when reporters probed about the state of Andy Murray's mind and his game as Britain's newly minted Grand Slam champion switches his focus to the Australian Open. "I never get into the details of his game with anyone because it not necessary for anyone other than Andy to know," the Czech-born Lendl said in familiar taciturn style. The former world number one - now a U.S. citizen - steered Murray to the U.S. Open crown in September, ending Britain's wait for a men's Grand Slam singles champion which had stretched back to 1936. Like Murray, Lendl lost the first four Grand Slam finals he contested but then went on to win eight, failing only at Wimbledon. Now Britain's barren spell is broken, many expect Murray to emulate his coach and win several more, but Lendl cautioned it would be far from easy. "Well obviously that is the goal," he said when asked if Murray could win in Melbourne. "But tennis is very difficult at the momen ...
Well done to Andy Murray for reaching the semis of Wimbledon again - fourth year in a row - although I am expecting Tsonga to conquer him despite Murray winning their two previous encounters on grass (Murray has beaten Tsonga at Queens and Wimbledon). Don't get me wrong I will obviously be rooting for Murray to reach the final - Britain's first finalist at Wimbledon sine Bunny Austin in 1938 - and then crusading towards the title against either Djokovic or Federer. Even if Murray does reach the final he will definitely be in for a very taxing match as he will be competing against the two men who have beaten him in the three Grand Slam finals he reached (2008 U.S. Open, 2010 Australian and 2011 Australian Open) in Federer and Djokovic in which Murray failed to win a single set. But Murray is arguably a better player now then when he reached those finals - Murray has the legendary Ivan Lendl as his coach now - but then again so are Djokovic and Federer despite Federer not winning a Major for a couple of yea ...
