    Masters memories, and should Murray be taking wild cards?

    In the latest episode of Tennis Legends, we mark the upcoming 50th anniversary of the ATP Finals with a trip down memory lane with Ivan Lendl, Alex Corretja and Mats Wilander.
    Lendl, a five-time winner of the end-of-year competition, recalls some of his successes while Corretja relives an infamous defeat to Pete Sampras...
    The legends also turn their attentions to Andy Murray - a player whom Coretja and Lendl have both coached. We reopen the debate over whether he should be taking wild cards at Grand Slams following some disappointing performances at the US Open and Roland Garros.
    "Murray has earned the right to play when he wants," says Lendl.
