Murray considers Lendl appointment

Andy Murray could be set to appoint former world No. 1 Ivan Lendl as his new coach in his bid to finally end his grand slam duck.

The eight-time major winner has reportedly made contact with Murray's camp to offer his services.

Murray is currently suffering a severe slump in form having reached the Australian Open final in January. The Scot has lost four straight matches, including defeats to lowly ranked opponents Donald Young and Alex Bogomolov Jr.

Murray does not currently employ a full-time coach, having parted company with Miles Maclagan last summer. He works with Alex Corretja on a consultancy basis and travels with friend and training partner Dani Vallverdu.

Lendl has no senior coaching experience, but could have the ideal CV to help the British No. 1 - having lost four major finals before going on to win eight grand slams, and he could be the man to help Murray finally get his hands on some major silverware.
