Murray parts company with Mauresmo


Andy Murray has parted company with his coach Amelie Mauresmo.

Murray began working with Mauresmo in June 2014 and in their two years together the 28-year-old has won seven titles, but has failed to add to his two majors.

"I've learned a lot from Amelie over the past two years," said Murray. "She's been a calming influence in the team and we'll miss having her around.

"I'd like to thank her for everything she has done, she has been an invaluable member of the team.

"I will take some time to consider the next steps and how we progress from here."

Mauresmo gave birth to her first child in August and the only tournaments she has attended as Murray's coach this year have been the Australian Open and the Miami Masters.

In a joint statement, Mauresmo added: "Working with Andy over the last two years has been a fantastic experience for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the great team of people he has around him.

"Dedicating enough time along with the travel has been a challenge for me. I wish him and his team well and I hope he goes on to win many more titles."
