Moreover, he is credited to have played a huge role in Murray being able to replicate Wimbledon and Olympics success during the summer of 2016.

Andy Murray put the cap on a horrible season

Ending his partnership with Ivan Lendl can hardly pass by as a minor event. The Czech tennis legend was the only one who knew which buttons to press in order to receive the best game from Murray. As 2017 is almost done and dusted, he sets his sights on what should be a new phase of his professional career. At 30, he will end the year ranked 16th in the world, his worst year's end ranking in over a decade.

Now, the worst season of his career is about to end with Murray setting his sights on Australia and the first part of 2018 calendar. He will start the next season in Brisbane before traveling to Melbourne for the first Grand Slam of the year.

The comeback talks won't revolve around Andy Murray only

Andy Murray would see his soon-to-start comeback bid under a lot of scrutinies, but he won't be the only one to get such treatment. The long list of absentees due to make a comeback in January 2018 is long. Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic or Gael Monfils are expected to produce some significant damages into a fast-changing landscape.

It's a doubled edge point of view with Murray sharing the comeback's pressure with others. On the other hand, that long string of names added to the existent ATP order gives a better representation of how hard Andy Murray would have to fight in order to succeed again. #world no 1
