4:43 pm on 29 July 2010

The world tennis number four Andy Murray hopes the sacking of his coach will help him win his first grand slam and gain the world number one spot.

Murray says he fired Miles Maclagan after two-and-a-half years of working together because they couldn't see eye-to-eye any longer.

The decision comes just a month before the final grand slam of the year the US Open.

Murray says while it wasn't a tough decision to make, it wasn't a nice one to make.

Murray will work with former Spanish player Alex Corretja pending the appointment of a new coach.
