Andy Murray admits he wants to follow his own path
Andy Murray has admitted that he has very clear views of how he wants his game to develop and says that it was the main reason he has parted company with former coach Miles Maclagan.
Though the British number one has been quick to point out that “it wasn’t necessarily something that Miles wasn’t bringing”, claiming that the split was more due to the fact “we all saw things pretty differently”.
Murray has been working with Maclagan for two and a half years after becoming part of the ‘Murray’ camp back in late 2007.
The world number four made leaps in and bounds in his development as a player under his fellow Scotsman and said that the decision was one that was not taken lightly.
Under Maclagan’s tutelage, Murray has managed to reach the finals of two Grand Slams, though has yet to win one.
He has, however, received massive endorsement and faith in his future prospects from many pundits, including,perhaps most notably, tennis legend Bjorn Borg.
It is Borg’s belief that Murray has got what it takes to pick up a Grand Slam title, with it being only a matter of time until the Britain’s top man reaps the rewards of his strenuous training schedule.
Murray has stated that although he does not see a particular problem with his game, he does want to get better.
"It’s easy to start over-thinking things and over-analysing things," said Murray. "I don’t think there’s a problem with my game.
"I just need to get better, and that’s something that maybe hasn’t happened the last four or five months.
William Hill offer 1/6 odds that Murray will not achieve a Grand Slam title in 2010, with 7/2 odds that he will win exactly one.
Bodog set their odds at 1/8 and 9/2 respectively for the same outcomes.
