Murray eager to hire new coach
Thursday 31 March 2011
Andy Murray has responded to the worst run of his professional career by admitting that he needs a new coach. The world No 5, who has suffered four successive defeats in straight sets, parted company with his coaching consultant Alex Corretja earlier this week.
Murray had said he was "reviewing the situation" after his split from Corretja, with whom he had been working part-time since April 2008. In that time the Scot reached three Grand Slam finals and won six Masters Series events, but since defeat in the Australian Open final in January his form has deteriorated.
It is understood that Murray would like to make the appointment before the clay-court season gets underway next month, provided he can find a suitable candidate.
