Welcome to the team Ivan Lendl

A post shared by Alexander Zverev (@alexzverev123) on

The German was last seen working with Lendl before the start of the U.S. hardcourt swing in Florida. When asked, he said it was just a few days, nothing more, and added that he’d keep us posted if any news broke.

We have yet to hear much from either party, but did get this tweet from Jerry Solomon, Lendl's manager.

That news is now broken, and a new era for the promising German begins. Zverev, who won the Citi Open title before losing in the quarterfinals at the Rogers Cup and the first round at the Western and Southern Open, is 43-13 on the season with three titles.

Lendl, who owns the record for most consecutive U.S. Open finals reached as a player, coached Andy Murray to all three of his Grand Slam titles during two coaching stints with the British star.
