Re: 2012 - The Year of Andy

Lendl coming on board as Andy's coach after all? Waiting for some official confirmation but it's been on twitter (which has now helpfully crashed)

Re: 2012 - The Year of Andy

Murray's got this. With or without Lendl on board. Actually more likely with.

Looking forward to his match against Kei.

Have a good feeling about this year.. as usual.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Andy's Facebook

Very happy to announce that Ivan Lendl is my new full time coach. His impact on the game is unquestionable and he brings experience and knowledge that few others have, particularly in major tournaments. Happy New Year

Re: 2012 - The Year of Andy

An intriguing move - I thought it was very interesting when it was first posited back in March 2011 even though nothing came of it then.

I will be fascinated to see how that chemistry works out and what, if anything, Lendl is able to bring to the table in terms of honing Andy's unquestionable talent and turning him into a winner at the majors. Lendl has been exactly where Andy was, losing his first three major finals, so if anyone can help Andy make that final step, Lendl is better placed than most.

Re: 2012 - The Year of Andy

Great, things are sorted on the coach side of things. It's all coming together for 2012 then. Lendl has unproven coaching credentials but his experience and similarities to Andy can only help. Hopefully their ego's don't clash and they gel quickly.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Re: 2012 - The Year of Andy

Just repeating what I said in another thread: When there were rumours about this earlier in the year I thought it sounded like a good idea so hopefully this works out.

Re: 2012 - The Year of Andy

Lendl huh? That should be an intriguing pairing. Ivan does know what Andy's going through which is a plus. I guess we'll have to wait and see with this one.

The Serbian Moron
That Pasty Scottish Bloke

The side pieces
The Sweet but Dopey Argentine
The Bulgarian Headcase
That Douche from Australia

And when the daylight's fading we're gonna play in the dark til it's golden again

And you might know the Tennis Channel is only showing the SFs and the Final of this Tournament. They are showing Doha!
