Andy Murray and Amélie Mauresmo have announced they have “mutually agreed to end their two year coaching relationship”.
The British No1, who was beaten in the Madrid Open final on Sunday by Novak Djokovic, confirmed the news with a statement: “I’ve learned a lot from Amélie over the past two years. She’s been a calming influence in the team and we’ll 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.”
Mauresmo added: “Working with Andy over the last two years has been a fantastic experience for me. 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 the team well and I hope he goes on to win any more titles.”
