Henman hails Murray and Bjorkman

Murray eased through his second round tie at the All England Club with a straight-sets win over Robin Haase and will now meet Halle finalist Andreas Seppi in round three.

The Scot is bidding for his third Grand Slam title, his first with coaches Amelie Mauresmo and Bjorkman, and Henman believes the Swede???s ability to get the best out of himself as a player puts Murray in a strong position at Wimbledon.

Henman, who practised with Bjorkman throughout his career, said: “I think he (Bjorkman) will have a very positive impact, and he’ll have more and more responsibility with Amelie Mauresmo’s pregnancy.

“You talk about someone getting the maximum out of their game, he was limited but he made it to four in the world.

“He knew exactly what to do to make sure he went absolutely as far as he could in the game.

“And that kind of depth of analysis and work ethic will definitely translate into making him a good coach.

“So you’ve got Jonas who squeezed absolutely everything out of his ability in his career, and when you’ve got the tools of Murray’s trade as well, to use those in the right fashion, I think it’s a great combination.”

Bjorkman joined Murray???s coaching staff in March which has seen Murray produce his best clay-court season, winning two titles in Munich and Madrid, his first triumphs on the surface.

And Henman reckons Bjorkman???s mentality has had a calming influence on Murray, adding: “Jonas had a great attitude in his playing days, he worked extremely hard and really enjoyed the whole process.

“And I think that’s absolutely spot-on for Andy on the mental side of things, to get out there and have fun, and to really the process of what he’s working on and the way that he plays.

“And it’s about not getting frustrated with himself; to really be clear in the process not the outcome.

“So I think that’s working well.”
