Tennis legend McEnroe says Wimbledon eventual test for Murray-Lendl alliance
London, June 20(ANI): Legendary tennis player John McEnroe believes this year's Wimbledon would be a colossal test for the partnership between British number tennis star Andy Murray and his coach Ivan Lendl.
McEnroe had a stormy relationship with Lendl during their playing days, but now things have seemingly cooled down.
McEnroe believes Lendl is still learning the art of being a coach, and believes a Wimbledon win for Murray would take him to the same level as of the Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
"I would think Ivan is still learning to be a coach. He's not full-time, that's tricky. Being part-time makes it very difficult to me personally," The Daily Mail quoted McEnroe, as saying.
McEnroe said Lendl who is a no nonsense guy is quite similar to Murray, and this could work in their favour at the Wimbledon.
"I don't know what's going with these injuries, his back. It's a place where a lot of stress goes. To me it's an area where Lendl potentially could help him.If you have a coach who's not going to take no for an answer, you could have someone who won't let him look for a way out to keep him in there. I don't think Ivan is the kind of guy who likes to take any s***," McEnroe said.
"The more I thought about their partnership the more sense it made. There are similarities in their career paths, some definite similarities. Before he beat me in Paris Ivan was 0-4 in finals, Andy is 0-3. There's a lot of credibility he can bring to the table," he added.
"Actually, I think this Wimbledon is the first time you can get a real gauge on how well it's going between them. At first I thought it was crazy, then I thought it was going to work out, now it's wait-and-see, you have to give it some time," he said. (ANI)
