Andy Murray will be coached by Ivan Lendl for the third time in the run-up to Wimbledon.

Murray first had eight-time major winner Lendl in his corner between 2011 and 2014 before a second link-up began in 2016.

The pair struck a successful partnership during both stints, which saw the 34-year-old Scot win all three of his Grand Slam titles and two Olympic gold medals.

The reunion will take place after this month’s Miami Open, as Murray seeks consistency in his game following career-saving hip surgery in 2019.

They will spend several weeks together in the US preparing for the grass-court season after Murray decided to not play any clay tournaments, including the French Open.

Murray is currently without a permanent coach after splitting with Jamie Delgado at the end of last season.

A trial period with German coach Jan de Witt ended after the former world number one was knocked out of the Australia Open in the second round.   

As well as Lendl, the Scot, who will play a Masters 1000 tournament in Indian Wells next week, will also look to add another coach to his team.
