Murray and Lendl aims to stop Djokovic’s Golden Slam

By on

Andy Murray has a goal now to keep Novak Djokovic from attaining the Golden Slam 2016 after his former coach Ivan Lendl has returned to his squad.

Djokovic has recently won the French Open 2016 against Murray, becoming the third man in tennis history to win all four majors concurrently. The world number 1 is currently eyeing his victory on Wimbledon, the Rio Olympics 2016 in Brazil, and on U.S Open so he could finally achieve the Golden Slam 2016.

Murray has not won any grand slam and has not beaten Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer after he and Lendl parted ways in March 2014, but with Lendl now back on his team, Murray is convinced and motivated that he can stop Djokovic from being the 1st male to achieve the title in one year.

He also said when he reunited with Lendl last June 12, that the only way to win the 2 majors is to get through Novak.

According to Lendl, although Djokovic has the chance to hold both the calendar grand slam and the golden slam this year and that he and Murray are preparing to keep it from happening, there has never been a time when a player achieved it simultaneously.

“So, if you start looking at it that way, it’s phenomenal. You can make the argument that in ’38 and ’62 all the pros didn’t play. But ’69 was incredible and that’s what puts Rod in the conversation of greatest of all time with Roger.” said Lendl.

Murray has recently able to defeat Nicolas Mahut at the warm-up event of Wimbledon, the Aegon Championships on Tuesday,
