Murray Splits With Coach Mauresmo
Murray ends successful partnership with former WTA No. 1
Andy Murray announced today that he has parted company with his coach Amelie Mauresmo.
Murray, who had worked with Mauresmo since June 2014, said, "She's been a calming influence in the team and we will all miss having her around. I'll take some time to consider the next steps and how we progress from here, but I'd like to thank her for everything she has done. She's been an invaluable member of the team."
The announcement comes a day after the 28 year old lost to World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open, where Jamie Delgado was in his corner. Delgado was brought in by Murray to support Mauresmo, who gave birth to a boy in August 2015, after this year's Australian Open.
"Working with Andy over the past two years has been a fantastic experience for me," said Mauresmo. "I've thoroughly enjoyed being part of the great team of people he has around him. Dedicating enough time along with the travel has been a challenge for me. I wish him and team well and I hope he goes on to win many more titles."
Since teaming up on 8 June 2014, Murray has gone 7-5 in tour-level finals. In that time, he reached No. 2 in the Emirates ATP Rankings and was runner-up in the 2015 and 2016 Australian Open finals (l. to Djokovic both times).
Murray has been previously coached by Leon Smith (1998–2004), Pato Alvarez (2003–2005), Mark Petchey (2005–2006), Brad Gilbert (2006–2007), Miles MacLagan (2007–2010), Alex Corretja (2010–2011), Ivan Lendl (2011–2014) and Jonas Bjorkman (2015). Murray won the 2012 London Olympics gold medal, 2012 US Open and 2013 Wimbledon titles with Lendl.
