Andy Murray Extends Coaching Relationship With Amelie Mauresmo For The “Long Term”
by Tom Gainey | August 4th, 2014, 9:46 am

Andy Murray officially announced yesterday that he’ll continue working with new coach Amelie Mauresmo through the summer and post-US Open.

“We’ve agreed to work together and I think from both sides we’re willing to do what it takes to make it work long term,” Murray said on Sunday.

“I sat down with her the day after Wimbledon, we made a plan for the next few months, in the build up to the US Open, Dani and Amelie will both be there at the US Open. That’s the plan for now, but I plan on working with her for longer than post-US Open, for sure,” he added.

Murray and Mauresmo teamed up almost two months ago, but the Scot fell apart against Grigor Dimitrov in the Wimbledon quarterfinals and failed to win Queen’s leading to speculation the trial would end.

Now ranked No. 10, Murray, who hasn’t won a title since Wimbledon last year, opens his Toronto bid against either Nick Kyrgios or Santiago Giraldo.

20 Comments for Andy Murray Extends Coaching Relationship With Amelie Mauresmo For The “Long Term”

Humble Rafa Says:

When you see mediocrity, hang on to it like your life depends on it.

jane Says:

this makes good sense, if only because one tournament is too little to determine whether or not the partnership will work. coaching relationships take time, generally, to click. so if they stick together until at least the end of this season, i am sure they’ll know more re: going forward.

Hippy Chic Says:

I dont really care whom he has for a coach,as long as he/she get him back on the winning track….

Wog boy Says:

The only one who can get back Andy on winning track is Andy himself, no coach can do that. He was under enormous pressure to win GS, he won two plus olympic gold in a space of one year, he could be emotionally drained and desire is not there any more. Lendl never really explained why he dumped Andy, he did dumped him, Andy didn’t see it coming.

Hippy Chic Says:

Wogboy i believe a good coach can steer a player in the right direction,obviously they can only help not do the winning on the court for them,just like a good football manager can get a team thats been in a slump back on the winning track,like LVC when Brendan almost got them winning the title,remember that,hope he stays BTW??

Hippy Chic Says:

Wogboy left some posts for you on the Toronto thread,just wondered if you had read them?

Wog boy Says:

I just saw it, I was never fan of “diminutive Austalian pop princess” appart of one particular part of her body:), but I am a fan of another Aussie that sang before Kylie in Glasgow, great singer and great human being and gret representative of her Aboriginal people, Jessica Mauboy. She still lives in Darwin in Northern Territory where she was born.

Sorry Andy fans for going off topic:(

skeezer Says:

@Wog boy
Hot! Like it, like her ;). She looks a bit Polynesian? Is this what the Aboriginal culture looks like per se or is she a mix?

Seeing Andy the past year or so he just never seems the same after the back thingy. Maybe a match or 2 he looked great. Even if he is over the back completely, the mind can take a while longer to get back the mojo. We’ll see.

Wog boy Says:

Skeezer, her father came Darwin from Indonesia (Timor) and her mother is Aboriginal, she considers herself part Aboriginal community, she is very down to earth person trying to live the life of any ordinary, every day person in the community she was born and raised. I had a chance to meet her, due to my work, and spend some time in the same coach (bus) with her and her friends and relatives, she doesn’t behave like a star, whatsoever. We didn’t even know she is going to be in the bus, you would expect she would order a limo.

Wog boy Says:

Should say “part OF Aboriginal community” and not “part Aboriginal comunnity”

Okiegal Says:

I hope Andy gets it back together. He is my second favorite. I will be cheering him on at Montreal and Cincy. C’mon Andy…..git r done!!

Colin Says:

Though I ought not to do so when, as an outsider, I don’t know all the details, I felt resentful toward Lendl when the break was announced. As you may recall, shortly after the partnership began, Ivan said he envisaged working with Andy foe the rest of his (Andy’s) career.

Many people thought the partnership wouldn’t work because, they said, Lendl had not been interested in tennis since he retired from the Tour.

Now he won’t give more time to Andy because, guess what, he’s involved in tennis again! Maybe great sports stars tend to be selfish.

By the way,that picture emphasises the fact that if you’re going to be part of Team Murray, you’d better like football!

Hippy Chic l Says:

Wogboy never heard of her i must say,but very beautiful,and a lovely voice,and a catchy song,i have to say i enjoy watching the dirty rockers and indie type of music Muse,Kings of Leon,Oasis,Blur etc….

Hippy Chic Says:

Wogboy ive never heard of her TBH,beautiful girl with a lovely voice,i must admit to been more of a fan of the dirty rocker/indie music Muse,Kings of Leon,Oasis,Blur etc….

Wog boy Says:

This is how and where she started:

and this is where she ended up:

Tennis Fan Says:

Andy Murray’s game is going nowhere right now. He is showing nothing so far under Mauresmo … I think he has to be making some decisions sooner or later … but I was never a big fan of Murray’s approach to the game anyway,

courbon Says:

” You should be so lucky” is a masterpiece of modern music… Skippy does not have a clue about music…

Wog boy Says:

Frenchie, it is called “I should be so lucky” and not “you should be so lucky” … did you say you know music?

Hippy Chic Says:

Courbon while i only remember that song for its pure irritation factor,and its not everybodys cup of tea,Kylie has come a long way,has been in the buisness since 1988,has had number 1 hits and albums in the 80s,90s,00s,and this decade too,and still looks fantastic IMO,she and i are the same age at 46,only i dont dont to work in gold hotpants lol

Hippy Chic Says:

Wogboy thanks for the links, she started on Australian Idol and shes still around simply because shes so talented,which is really unusual these days for those type of shows,our guy Will Young won our version of that show,and has also been going strong since he won it in 2001 i think?releasing many multi platinum albums,and has also branched out into acting was in a film called Mrs Henderson Presents,all about the Old Windmill Theatre in London,dont know if you have ever seen or heard of it?anyway hes also very talented with a distinctive sounding voice….
