Andy Murray parts ways with coach Ivan Lendl for the third time following a challenging conclusion to the 2023 season

Andy Murray may be in search of a new coach for the 2024 season following his third split with Ivan Lendl.

Murray had rehired Lendl in 2022 with the aim of recapturing past successes, as they had previously worked together during Murray’s major title-winning periods.

However, Andy Murray’s recent performance on the ATP Tour has been less than stellar, with a lack of consecutive victories since early March and a string of five losses in his last six matches.

Despite the separation from Lendl, Murray will continue collaborating with Jonny O’Mara and Mark Hilton, the other members of his coaching team.

Expressing gratitude for Lendl’s contributions, Murray acknowledged the coach’s role in his career’s defining moments. Lendl reciprocated, reflecting on their time together and wishing Murray success in the future.

Currently ranked No. 42 in the ATP rankings, Andy Murray achieved his first Grand Slam win at the 2012 US Open and followed it up with a gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics. Notably, he became the first British male to win the Wimbledon singles title since 1936.

The Lendl-Murray partnership initially ended in 2014 but resumed in 2016, leading to Wimbledon and Olympic victories.

During their second stint together, Murray reached the world No. 1 ranking. However, they parted ways again in 2017, with Jamie Delgado taking over as Murray’s coach.

Despite the coaching change, Andy Murray continues to compete and has been named in the Great Britain Davis Cup squad for the match against Serbia in Malaga on November 23.

The team, led by Leon Smith, previously defeated France in September but will be without world No. 35 Dan Evans due to a calf injury sustained at the Vienna Open.
