Mur­ray re­mains in no hurry to ap­point a new coach

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Andy Mur­ray is in no rush to ap­point a new coach thanks to his im­pres­sive form in re­cent weeks.

The world No. 2 parted ways with coach Amelie Mau­resmo last month and then went on to beat No­vak Djokovic on clay for the first time in the fi­nal of the Ital­ian Open.

With Jamie Del­gado now part of Mur­ray’s team, the Scot is happy to en­ter the French Open with­out a full-time coach. “I’m play­ing very well so there’s no need to make a change a few days be­fore the French,” said Mur­ray. “Right now is a dif­fi­cult time to make a change and, to be hon­est, why would I? Maybe [I’ll] have an­other look dur­ing the grass [court sea­son] to see if there’s po­ten­tial to try some­thing out there. “There’s less rush be­cause Jamie’s com­mit­ted to do­ing 35 to 40 weeks a year with me and we’re go­ing to be work­ing to­gether ev­ery week through un­til Wim­ble­don, so I have that con­ti­nu­ity and con­sis­tency, which I didn’t have last year with Amelie and Jonas [Bjork­man].

“That’s why there’s less of a need or a rush to bring some­one in im­me­di­ately, un­less it’s the right per­son and the right sit­u­a­tion.”

Mur­ray, a three-time semi-fi­nal­ist at Roland Gar­ros, faces Czech qual­i­fier Radek Stepanek in the first round of the French Open.
