Lendl's presence for grand slam wins is no coincidence - Murray


Andy Murray said it is no coincidence that Ivan Lendl has coached him to his only two grand slam titles.

Murray stands on the brink of adding a third major to his collection after seeing off Tomas Berdych to reach the Wimbledon final, with Lendl having been re-hired by the Scot last month.

And Murray, who faces Milos Raonic in Sunday's final, hopes to repeat the success he enjoyed with Lendl at the 2012 US Open and Wimbledon 2013.

"I don't think it's a coincidence," he said. "I obviously had the best years of my career with him.  But there is other people that go into it, as well.  

"The rest of the team that's working with me has helped get me into this position. 

"There's no guarantees that I win on Sunday, obviously. But I obviously wanted to work with Ivan again to try to help me win these events. That's the goal.

"But there's a lot of people have helped get me into this situation. My whole team's responsible for that."

Asked whether he was already feeling the benefit of having linked up with eight-time grand slam champion Lendl again, Murray added: "I do feel there's a benefit. Obviously, over the next few months and at the end of the year, when I get time to sort of train and work on things away from the court, is when I'll start to really make bigger gains, hopefully, in my game. 

"But the information I get from him, the psychological help that I get from having him around, being able to chat to him at these events, before the big matches, makes a difference."
