Lendl cautious on Murray chances

November 25, 2012 16:07:48 UK
Andy Murray, who won his first grand slam title at the US Open earlier this year.

Andy Murray's coach Ivan Lendl has moved to calm expectations of the British number one ahead of 2013.

Lendl recently stated he can see no reason why Murray cannot challenge for all four grand slam titles next season, but the former world number one has now moved to play down the Scot's chances of recording back-to-back major honours by picking up the Australian Open title next month.

Murray sealed a first grand slam title under Lendl’s guidance at the US Open in the summer and having grabbed the Olympic gold medal and reached the Wimbledon final many believe Murray can take the top prize in Melbourne.

Lendl insists Murray can compete with the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for the top prizes, although he insists the world number three will continue to focus on one game at a time.

"Tennis is a very difficult sport to win these days with the likes of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal and Andy in that group - it's very, very difficult to succeed," Lendl said.

"I am not going to go there... I never get into the details of his game with anyone because it not necessary for anyone other than Andy to know.

"The best way to go about it is one game at a time."

Murray is 3.50 to secure the Australian Open title, while Djokovic can be backed at 2.00.
