Andy Murray announced that Jonas Bjorkman has left his team. Bjorkman took over the main coaching duties during Amelie Mauresmo’s pregnancy, but now with the Frenchwoman ready to return full-time, there likely isn’t room for Bjorkman.
“Nice to have Amelie back in the team out in Dubai. Thanks to Jonas for helping out this year. I enjoyed working with one of the nicest guys on the tour, bring on 2016,” Murray wrote on Facebook today.
Mauresmo is with Murray for his Dubai training block this month. Tuesday in Dubai Murray beat Roger Federer 64 in the IPTL series.
“She [Mauresmo] came on board at a very difficult time of my career,” Murray told the Gulf News. “I was ranked No.11. It was quite some time that I had strayed out of the top 10. But she came along and we started believing in what we could do with her as the coach. There have been a lot of positives for me since she joined the staff.
“From here on, I need to work hard and get to winning the big ones and the Grand Slams. I have reached a level where I can win but I just need to find a way to win the big tournaments if I want to be the best in the world.”
