World No. 87 Andy Murray continues to rise in the ATP rankings having broken into the ATP Top-100 last week, entering into a double-digit ranking for the first time in 45 months. Murray was ranked 95th in the world when he started at the 2022 Rotterdam Open.
The journey however ended in the second round when the Brit was defeated by eventual champion Felix Auger-Aliassime. The 34-year-old then was disappointing both in Qatar and Dubai, losing at the round of 16 stages in both the tournaments to Roberto Bautista Agut and Jannick Sinner respectively.
Andy Murray reunites with Ivan Lendl in shock return
After weeks of speculation on who’ll be the coach of Andy Murray, the Scot shocked the world by announcing the return of Ivan Lendl as his coach. The pair have previously enjoyed an exceptionally successful stint working together earlier.
About four and a half years after the pair split up for a second time, Lendl would again be linking up with the former World No.1. Murray’s manager announced Friday that the 34-year-old from Scotland and Lendl have agreed to return to working together over the next few months.
Their immensely successful partnership earlier produced all of the three Grand Slam singles trophies won by Murray and two consecutive Olympic gold medals in 2012 and 2016 for Murray, the only tennis player with more than one Summer Games singles title.
The two men now plan to hold a training camp in the United States for several weeks after the Miami Open hard-court tournament, which ends on April 3 in order to discuss and plan ahead and get used to the new training regime.
