Wimbledon champion Andy Murray chooses new permanent coach

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray reveals that he has chosen his new permanent coach, but does not expect to make an announcement as yet.

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has revealed that he has chosen his new permanent coach, but does not expect an announcement to be made before the French Open.

The Scotsman has been searching for a new coach since March after ending a two-year partnership with Ivan Lendl.

Seven-time Grand Slam champion John McEnroe has been touted as a possible option for Murray, who will take on world number 55 Andrey Golubev in the first round at Roland Garros.

Murray told BBC Sport: "I have an idea of exactly what I want. I've thought about it a lot, I've spoken to them and I'll see. It's not like you chat to the person and the next day it's done.

"You have to get a contract in place and there's always a few little complications in that respect, but as long as the desire from both people is to work together then hopefully it can happen fairly soon."

Murray missed last season's French Open due to injury.
