Andy Murray’s practice session on the first day of the US Open 2016 overseen by Ivan Lendl. Next to them Novak Djokovic and Boris Becker are at work.
Today Andy Murray announced that he will reunite with his former coach Ivan Lendl. The pair will work together in the lead-up to Wimbledon.
In 2016 Ivan Lendl will work with a group of 15- and 16-year-old boys as part of the U.S. Tennis Association’s player development program.
Ivan Lendl is part of two interesting tennis books that I’d like to introduce here. ‘No.1: Celebrating 40 Years of the Ultimate Achievement’ was published by the ATP in 2013 and ‘Tennis’ Greatest Stars’ from Mike Ryan was released last year. Take a look at both books in the gallery below.
In 2014 the famous Italian sports newspaper „La Gazzetta dello Sport“ published a series of 22 volumes featuring tennis legends like John McEnroe, Steffi Graf, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and many more. The series is called „I grandi del tennis ai raggi X“ and can be ordered here: http://store.gazzetta.it/altri-sport/i-grandi-del-tennis ai-raggi-x/3NSsEWcWy0AAAAFI92wHbvVP/ct
Volume 2 features Ivan Lendl and contains 96 pages with numerous high quality pictures from the beginning of his career through to the year 2014 as well as some statistics at the end. So it is definitely worth buying even if the reader can’t master the Italian language.
A new book about Ivan Lendl has been released a couple of weeks ago. It is called ‘Ivan Lendl – The Man Who Made Murray’ and the author is Mark Hodgkinson.
25 years after their legendary match at the French Open Ivan Lendl and Michael Chang met again on grass. On the 7th of June 2014 they played a mixed doubles match at the Champions Trophy which was held in context of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle / Westfalen, Germany. Lendl teamed up with Andrea Petkovic and Chang was joined by Julia Görges. Lendl and Petkovic won that match 4-6, 6-2, 10:6.
