Andy Murray wants a new coach by Roland Garros

8:53 am on 9 April 2014

The British tennis player Andy Murray has set himself a target of hiring a new coach by the start of the French Open just six weeks away.

The world number eight has been without a coach since splitting in March from Ivan Lendl, who led him to the Olympic gold medal and an historic Wimbledon title last year.

While Murray insists that he is well served by his current team, the 26-year-old knows that with the clay season approaching he will need an extra pair of hands in his corner.

Murray has said all along that he doesn't want to rush the selection process. But his results this season have been mediocre, with an Acapulco semi-final his best showing.
