The coaching changes continue today as according to reports, Andy Murray and coach Miles Maclagen have separated.
Murray told the BBC, “”I’ve had a great relationship with Miles over the past two-and-a-half years and I want to thank him for his positive contribution to my career. We have had a lot of success and fun working together.”
Murray, who is playing this week at the Farmer’s in Los Angeles, tweeted over the weekend: “My old coach pato alvarez came to watch me and feli hit today. So good to see him, he was great to me. http://tweetphoto.com/34682166″.
The Telegraph reports that it was Maclagan who initiated the split.
Maclagan was among several on “Team Murray” which included Jez Green, Matt Little, Andy Ireland and most recently (and controversially) Alex Corretja.
Maclagan joined Murray in September 2007. Prior to that Murray had been coached by Brad Gilbert and Mark Petchey among others.
Speculation on Maclagan’s replacement is now centering on Darren Cahill.
After falling short at the 2008 US Open and 2010 Australian Open, Murray is still trying to become the first British man to win a Grand Slam title since Fred Perry in 1936.
