Andy Murray, 29, is without any trace of doubt one of the most prominent Tennis player in the ATP circuit. Despite his tremendous skills, it seems that he never was able to reach his highest peak. On this matter, he had the misfortune of competing in the same era with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic. But, even so, he was able to stand on the same level with these players, but not always.

His only problem remains some sort of lack of consistency, as well as the coping with his inner-demons. On thetennis court, during the matches, Murrayseems to always be torn apart by mixed emotions. That`s what Amelie Mauresmo said acouple of months agowhen she and Andy Murray decided to end their player-coach relationship.

Back to the old recipe.

In 2016, Andy Murray lost both the Australian Open and the French Open finals.

With the Wimbledon Championship knocking at the door, the time for a change couldn`t be better. According to ESPN, Murray has brought in Ivan Lendl as his main coach. For Lendl, it will be the second time that he`ll stand in Murray`s corner. Their previous partnership (2011-2014) was a fruitfulone. During that chunk of time, the Scot clinched the biggest achievements of his career, namely the Olympic gold medal in men`s single in 2012, the US Open also in 2012, and in 2013 the Wimbledon title. So, the current choice is well justified.

Murray`s jam during the Grand Slam finals.

Throughout his career, Andy Murray played in ten Grand Slam finals, losing eight of them. His winning rate is extremely low. Let`s take, for example, the Australian Open. The Scotsman competed in five finals at Melbourne (2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016), losing all of them. This factcan dig out an insurmountable hole in every player`s morale. He also lost other three Grand Slam finals at 2008 US Open and 2012 Wimbledon (both against Federer) and the most recent one at the 2016 French Open.

But, Ivan Lendl, a former tennis wizard, might have the cure, or at least some of it. Those 2 Grand Slam titles stand as a living proof.
