    As most know it, Murray's weakness was his forehand (apart from his 2nd serve) ..
    but something changed within last year or so ..
    and now some of you seen, his forehand is looking so good... lot of power and ability to take it on the rise!
    -- what has changed technically?

    When Lendl coaches you rather than MilesMac, the mindset changes. He's not pushing off the FH side and can go DTL as a result...much less predictable! If he can beef up the second serve, there's more hardware for the mantle on the way.

    Yeah the second serve is such a big difference compared to the first. He holds quite comfortably when the first ball goes in but you can really notice him struggle when he has to serve a 2nd ball. Really noticed it in the Wimby against Fed.
