Murray splits with coach Alex Corretja « on: March 29, 2011, 02:04 PM »

Andy Murray has split with his coaching consultant Alex Corretja after having worked together on a part-time basis since April 2008.

The split comes after recent media speculation that the Scot is in talks with Ivan Lendl about a potential coaching role.

Murray's statement:

I’ve had a really good relationship with Alex over the past three years. I have learned so much from being around him and I want to thank him for his hard work, enthusiasm, dedication and support. He has been a great friend as well as a mentor to me and we’ve shared lots of success and good times both on and off the court.

Alex Corretja's statement:

Helping Andy has been a great experience for me, he’s got great talent and can be one of the best on any surface. I am very thankful to him for his confidence and trust during this time and also to his family, and the rest of Andy’s team. I wish Andy, his family and all his team all the best both personally and professionally.

BBC tennis correspondent Jonathan Overend says work on finding a new coach is continuing behind the scenes but says Ivan Lendl is not a contender.

The plot thickens.

It's got to be Lendl, surely?

I was hoping Andy could keep him as a clay court consultant, personally.

This obviously adds a lot of weight to the Lendl situation, they are probably in serious negotiations now.

Murray is unlikely to ever get good results on clay (lacks the instinctive kind of movement required on that surface), so he might as well Do a Roddick and just concentrate on surfaces that suit him.

You're going to eat your words when he retires with 6 FOs, and Phillippe Chatrier is renamed Andy Murray Court.

I can understand why, but that being said, he is going to struggle to stay at the top level if he doesn't appoint someone with a real track record of coaching a player to the highest level.

He hasn't been consistent since 2009.

Lendl was a lot better than Corretja on clay...

He'll hire just about the only guy that could possibly piss off the need a coach crowd, Mr. Wilander.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Yep. How can anyone who won so many big titles know so little about tennis?

I'm glad Corretja is no longer Andy's coach as I don't think Andy's been doing well on the clay since the appearence of Corretja. Fingers crossed Lendl will be the next coach as it may well be the turning point for Andy, up up and away!!

We can't all be right, but we could all be wrong ... Very Happy
