Andy Murray has officially hired former French great and Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo as his new coach. It’s not Murray’s first stint with a female coach, he has long been under the guide of his mom Judy.
“I’m excited by the possibilities of the new partnership and Amelie is someone I have always looked up to and admired. She’s faced adversity plenty of times in her career, but was an amazing player and won major titles, including Wimbledon.”
“I have a very strong coaching team already in place, but I think Amelie brings with her experience and tactical expertise and will push us all to improve. Everyone I know talks very highly of Amelie, as a person and coach, and I’m convinced that her joining the team will help us push on – I want to win more grand slams.”
Added Mauresmo, “I’m really excited to be able to work with Andy. He’s an amazingly talented tennis player and I feel I have plenty to offer both him and the team around him. I’m looking forward to getting down to work and helping him win more Grand Slams.”
Murray and Ivan Lendl split on the eve of the Miami Masters 1000.
The 34-year-old Mauresmo won two Grand Slam singles titles, Wimbledon and the Australian Open alongside a Silver Medal at the 2004 Olympics. She has also worked with several top French tennis players, recently helping Marion Bartoli win her first major at Wimbledon in 2013 and she’s the Fed Cup Captain for France.
