Andy Murray They have parted ways with coach Ivan Lendl for the third time, they said on Friday.

Lendl helped Murray to his three Grand Slam titles and was paired with the Briton again last year.

Their latest breakup was mutual, they said.

“Evan has been by my side in the biggest moments of my career, and I can’t thank him enough for what he’s helped me achieve,” said Murray, the former world no. 1. “He’s a unique character who understands what it takes to win, and I’ve learned a lot from him over the years.”

Murray, 36, first recruited Lendl in 2011 and found his breakthrough the following year, when he won Olympic gold before claiming his first Grand Slam title at the US Open.

A year later, Murray became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years.

They split in 2014, but Lendl, an eight-time Grand Slam winner as a player, returned in 2016 where Murray won his second Wimbledon title and second Olympic gold and was world no. 1 for the first time.

Murray began working with Lendl again last year as he continued to try to revive his career following hip resurfacing surgery in 2019, but suffered a disappointing season as he continued his long wait to get past the third round at a Grand Slam.

The last time Murray went further than that was in 2017, shortly before the end of his second spell with Lendl.

“I’ll look back on the time Andy and I worked together with some great memories,” Lendl said. “He’s as hard working as he is out there, and the sport is better because of him. I wish him nothing but the best in the years to come.”

British husband Mark Hilton and Johnny O’MaraMurray, who has been working with Lendl this year, will continue to work with Scott
