Murray keen for extended Mauresmo link up

Andy Murray admits that he would like to call on Amelie Mauresmo as his coach for some time yet.

The London 2012 gold medallist teamed up with French former Wimbledon champion Mauresmo shortly before the grass-court season began.

However she was unable to help Murray retain his 2013 Wimbledon title as he lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals.

That defeat saw Murray slip down to tenth in the world rankings ahead of the US Open, which gets going in New York on August 25.

Mauresmo will be in Murray’s corner for the tournament and Murray is hopeful she will be around for much longer than that.

"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.

"I really enjoy working with her, she's helped me a lot. She integrated well with the rest of the team. It's been a good start. Now it's about me producing the results.

"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 [assistant coach Dani Vallverdu] 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."
