Q.

It is heard that Andy Murray has hired Ivan Lendl the former tennis great as a consultant not for his game but to improve his mental strength. After that Murrays game has improved by leaps and bounds. Is it a classic example of how much a true mentor can contribute to ones success? Your views?

Yes, it indeed is an example of that but i am not too sure that Lendl would serve as the right mentor for Murray who has a different game as compared to Lendl & Lend lhimself wasnt the best when it came to winning the crucial finals as he had lost more Finals than anyone else!!

Yes Ivan Lendl was amongst the top tennis players in the world from 1982 to 1995-96 as he was one of the fittest, mentally strong players who always had a game plan for his opponents. Its an incredible achievement because the strong points in his game were a good forehand and a big serve. Especially taking into consideration the fact that his opponents were as diverse and talented as Mcnroe, Connors, Becker, Edberg, Wilander during his early years and later Sampras, Courier, Agassi, Chang in the latter part of his career. He was involved in two of the longest US open finals against Wilander and one French open final against Chang. His first grand slam win - the 1984 French Open was won when he was 2-0 sets and a break of serve down in the third set against Mcnroe. Despite his basline game not very suited for the grass of Wimbledon, he almost won it in 1986 when was 2-1 and a break of serve up against the great serve volleyer Becker.
He brings all these strong attributes to the game of ...more
