Should Lendl Flee the Scene of Action

murray is making about as much as headway as a snake making love to a buggy whip with Lendl around.

at the current rate, i can see Lendl leaving the scene of action after wimbledon. sticking around is not good for him and its not good for murray.

you have the floor. make good use of it.

fire away.


you are Lendl: do you stay or do you go?

Re: Is Lendl Out After Wimbledon?

Lets be honest, apart from mentally staying with Djokovic when getting destroyed and then taking 2 sets against him at the Australian Open (that he should have won more comfortably anyway), what else has Lendl helped him with?

Maybe it'll take more time, but at the moment nothing good is being shown of this relationship at all.

Re: Is Lendl Out After Wimbledon?

Was he even there this week? Didn't notice him.

Let's be honest though, Murray's season wont be judged by his clay results. He has had a mediocre Feb to May, which is usually his worst part of the season anyway.

Re: Is Lendl Out After Wimbledon?

Ya, Lendl is certainly known for his commitment to instant gratification and short term success.

Hell, he should have left when Murray lost his first point of the year.

Re: Is Lendl Out After Wimbledon?

Not even Lendl, Borg, and McEnroe put together can win Murray a slam.

Re: Is Lendl Out After Wimbledon?

its just the clay court season, no one should panic about him there

when it really counted he almost beat Nole in AO SF and could have won there so its just about getting ready for Wimbledon and after

Roland Garros will just be used as practise

Re: Is Lendl Out After Wimbledon?

Still way too early to tell. He's defending SF at Wimbledon and SF at RG.

He's also got exactly zero points in Canada, and a win at Cincinnati. Since Canada is before Cincy, that still gives him an opportunity to move up in the rankings between now and August 8th.

His lack of success in the early part of the year is really going to prevent him from moving up - but it's way too early to ditch Lendl.

Re: Is Lendl Out After Wimbledon?

Who cares? Its clay, he's always been shit there. All I care about with Murray is slams, particularly non-clay ones. Even if he improves somewhat on clay he's never going to beat Nadal, Fed, and Djoker there anyway so I don't really give a fuck. At the moment he's also going through a bad run of form, which happens. Not concerned about that, he'll be back.

I am pissed off about his attitude however. He needs to stop being petulant and start playing like a man again. If Lendl can help him with that, I'll be happy.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.
