Former British world No. 1 Andy Murray has decided to ride alongside former player Ivan Lendl, who has already been his personal trainer twice, at the time of his three Grand Slam victories.
Scott had a fling with Jamie Delgado in December, who had been by his side since the departure of Amelie Mauresmo in 2016.
Andy Murray first worked as a player in 2012 alongside Lendl, winner of eight Grand Slams. Czech’s mentorship helped him win his first major tournament with the US Open 2012 and then a coveted victory at Wimbledon the following summer.
Murray and Lendl split in 2014, before meeting again in 2016. With the Czech technician Scott had his second Wimbledon and his second Olympic gold medal in singles, achieved at the Rio Games, then world No. In November 2017, Murray and Lendl were reunited.
The former world No. 1 is struggling to return to the highest level and is ranked 84th in the world, after a series of disappointing results since his final at the ATP Sydney in January before the Australian Open.
However, Murray did not say whether Lendl, who is now 61 years old and a naturalized American, would accompany him to the tournament. But after key meetings at Indian Wells and Miami on the ATP circuit, he will train with them in March.
