Andy Murray looks set to retain the services of coach Amelie Mauresmo who joined forces with the double Grand Slam champion ahead of Wimbledon this year.

Although Mauresmo’s appointment is yet to be confirmed, reports are coming from Florida that the Frenchwoman will be installed before Murray opens his North American hard court season early next month.

Mauresmo, winner of the Wimbledon and Australian Open singles titles in 2006, has been working with the 27-year-old Scot in Miami in recent days.

Murray has admitted he has enjoyed his training sessions with the 35-year-old former world No 1 since teaming with Mauresmo at the start of the grass court season in early June.

The British No 1’s only concern was whether she would commit enough of her time to travelling with him.

Murray split with former coach Ivan Lendl earlier in the year because the eight-time Grand Slam winner wanted to cut back on his travelling commitments.

Murray, whose Wimbledon title defence ended at the quarter-final stage at the hands of Grigor Dimitrov, will open his hard-court season at the Rogers Cup in Toronto at the start of August by which time Mauresmo is likely to be named as his full-time coach.
