Is new Murray coaching partnership going to end in disaster?

Posted 01-11-2012 at 04:35 PM by Philip Oliver
Andy Murray is a man who doesn't suffer fools gladly. That much has been known ever since the Scot burst onto the Grand Slam scene what seems like many, many years ago now, with Murray initially known more for his hot-headed outbursts, wild temper, and ability to break tennis rackets than his actual talent and ability.

It therefore came as something of a surprise when the Scot revealed the identity of his new coach: Ivan Lendl, a man also well-known in tennis circles for being a little, shall we say, impatient and not one to mince his words. Those looking at the Australian Open tennis betting should remember this.

With the majority of Murray's loyal fans glad to hear the news, with some believing his decision to go without an official coach for long stretches of time to be counter-productive to his game, it has perhaps been left solely to the neutrals to take a more considered look at the new partnership. Those following the tennis betting should bear this in mind.

Although the new coach undoubtedly has strong credentials that could propel Murray onwards and upwards ahead of the Australian Open, with Lendl winning eight major titles in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the official statement from Lendl nevertheless perhaps gives an insight into the potentially fraught relationship that could develop between the two: "All that will be said to Andy on that subject will be said by me to him and to nobody else".

Should Lendl prove to the tennis world that he is, as tennis pundits and experts are claiming, largely a misunderstood character rather than a hot-headed renegade, then maybe, just maybe, the Murray-Lendl partnership could turn out to be one of the most important and game-changing of the 2012 season.
