tennishead magazine: August issue OUT NOW!


Originally published on: 22/07/13 00:00

After 77 years of waiting, Britain finally has a men's Wimbledon champion. In our special commemorative edition we look back at Andy Murray's route to the Championship, recounting all seven glorious victories.

Renowned tennis writer Paul Newman assesses the impact of Murray's coach Ivan Lendl since his appointment 18 months ago and we relive a memorable fortnight in our stunning gallery.

We've also got an exclusive interview with Murray's mum Judy on the lack of female coaches in the game and talk to top coach Mats Merkel, who has worked with Murray in the past as part of the adidas player development programme.

If you're looking to improve your own game, learn how to serve like Marin Cilic in our academy section and we assess the role of rituals in tennis.

From the smallest of beginners to a budding Wimbledon champion, we make sense of junior rackets, while we try to demystify the science of strings.

Sam Querrey chats about his Babolat racket while Tomas Berdych is our Locker Room guest as he talks time penalties, Twitter and team tennis.
