Andy Murray had a lot of pressure from his compatriots before winning his first slam and, of course, also before conquering Wimbledon after 77 years of drought.
According to his former coach Ivan Lendl, Murray was struggling a lot especially before winning his first title in Wimbledon back in 2013. Andy didn’t manage to win the Championships the previous year in 2012 after he lost to Federer in the final to end up in tears during the following on-court interview.
Lendl acknowledged that the expectations were a bit too much for Murray and Ivan tried to console him saying: “You played big, big tennis, but the pressure was so big.”

During a recent interview, Lendl disclosed what he said to Murray to help him to shrugg off the tension and win his first Championships
“The pressure on Andy to win Wimbledon was so big. When they remembered that it was 77 years since a last British player’s win at Wimbledon, my head got hurt. I told him ‘Do not read anything, do not watch TV, get away from the world.‘ ”
