Murray set to retain Mauresmo

Andy Murray looks set to retain the services of coach Amelie Mauresmo after the pair joined forces ahead of this year's Wimbledon Championships.

The Frenchwomen's appointment has yet to be confirmed but reports in Florida claim she will be installed before Murray embarks on the North American hardcourt season 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 enjoying his training sessions with the 35-year-old former world No 1 since teaming up with Mauresmo at the start of the grasscourt season in early June.

The British No 1 split with former coach Ivan Lendl earlier in the year after the eight-time Grand Slam winner decided 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 hardcourt season at the Rogers Cup in Toronto at the start of August.
