    Ivan Lendl: The Man Who Made Murray
    Mark Hodgkinson - Hardback - Aurum Press
    When news broke on New Year's Ever 2011 that Andy Murray - a serial Grand Slam runner-up - had teamed up with the man they used to call 'Choke-Slovakian' for the number of times he had lost in finals of majors, it appeared to be a huge gamble. Lendl, who had fled from behind the Iron Curtain at the height of the Cold War to America in order to pursue his tennis dreams, was everything his contemporaries - McEnroe, Becker, Connors - were not. Where they were instinctive, he was scientific. Where they were emotional, he was brutally cold. Where they were loved, he was loathed. And yet, after falling at the final hurdle four times, he went on to win 8 Grand Slams. But there was one title missing - Wimbledon. And he was obsessed by it. This is Ivan Lendl's story.
