• US recruits Lendl to work with youngsters


    LOS ANGELES: Former world number one Ivan Lendl has been recruited to help nurture the next generation of American tennis stars, the United States Tennis Association said in a statement. The 55-year-old Czech born legend, whose recent coaching successes include helping Andy Murray triumph at the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013, is part of a team of former professionals who will work with youngsters, the USTA added. American men’s tennis has failed to produce a Grand Slam singles champion for more than a decade, with Andy Roddick the last player to lift a major title at the 2003 US Open.
