British tennis star Andy Murray confirmed reports that Amelie Mauresmo will still remain his coach and he’s hoping that the partnership will continue beyond the US Open which takes place later this month.
“We’ve agreed to work together and I think from both sides we’re willing to do what it takes to make it work long term,” the 27-year old said on Sunday.
Speculations arose that the partnership might not have gone beyond the recently concluded Wimbledon tournament where Muray, then the defending champion, lost in the quarterfinals. However, photographs of them training in Miami a few weeks ago led to assumptions that the coaching partnership will continue.
Murray, speaking at a press conference in time for this week’s Rogers Cup in Toronto, said that their training in Florida has been fruitful.
“I really enjoy working with her, she’s helped me a lot,” he said.
“She integrated well with the rest of the team. It’s been a good start. Now it’s about me producing the results.”
Murray will have a packed North American hardcourt season as he’s slated to compete at the Cincinnati Masters a week later and the US Open which starts on August 25.
Mauresmo and assistant coach Dani Vallverdu are expected to be in New York for the hardcourt Grand Slam tournament.
“I sat down with her the day after Wimbledon, we made a plan for the next few months, in the build up to the US Open, Dani and Amelie will both be there at the US Open. That’s the plan for now, but I plan on working with her for longer than post-US Open, for sure.”
