Murray open to Lendl reunion


Andy Murray is interested in reuniting with former coach Ivan Lendl following his split from Amelie Mauresmo.

The Scot announced that his working relationship with Mauresmo was over on Monday, citing "significant time apart" as the reason.

Murray enjoyed the best moments of his career working with Lendl, winning Olympic gold at the London 2012 Games before going on to triumph at the US Open and Wimbledon.

The pair surprisingly stopped working together in March 2014 as Lendl struggled to meet the demands of Murray's schedule.

But Murray has no qualms about linking up with the Czech once again if a compromise can be reached.

"I'd certainly consider it. I had fantastic results working with Ivan," he told BBC Sport at the Internazionali Italia, where he beat Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3 6-3 in round two on Wednesday.

"Both of us, I think, enjoyed it enough to at least consider that. Whether or not it's something that could work, I'm not sure. We'll have to wait and see - but I'm not against that idea at all."

Murray, though, is keen for a swift resolution, adding: "If not, you get into the French Open, it's another couple of weeks and four or five weeks go past quick.

"You're into the grass-court season and that's obviously a pretty important and fairly stressful time of year too - so I'll try and make some progress with that in the next week or two."
