Murray to temporarily work with Darren Cahill « on: April 06, 2011, 05:08 PM »
Reply with quote

Andy Murray is struggling to find a new coach and therefore will temporarily use coaches involved in Adidas's player development programme, such as Darren Cahill and Sven Groeneveld.

It's not the fix to what I'm looking for.

But short-term, while I'm looking for the right person, there will be people there with experience that can help.


They have some great people working within it, they're around a lot of the tournaments.

Murray said his search has been difficult because he requires his future coach to commit for up to 35 weeks of the year.

People think it's an easy thing to do but it's really not. There's not that many people with a lot of experience that are willing to give up 30, 35 weeks of the year travelling and come to where you're training.

There might have to be a bit of sacrifice on my part to go and train wherever the coach is, to make it a bit easier for them.

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

This isn't really news, as the Adidas coaches have always been available to him.

This has been mis-reported, what Andy actually says in the interview is that he will use the Adidas coaches IF he can't find anyone else.  He basically admits he is actively looking for a full-time coach, either an experienced coach or talented ex-pro, but the problem has been getting someone to commit to the number of weeks that he wants someone with him for.

There isn't really much new in this story at all.

Exactly, is it just another cop-out instead of making a decision (huge as it might be), or has he honestly not had any offers of/ or decided who would give him the best coaching from what appears to be quite a few of the top guys that are free atm? (Phew...sorry for the long sentence)

And whats with the 30-35 weeks per year now? Thought he was quoted as saying 20-25 would be all he required???  confused

Anyway, suppose we'll see what sort of frame of mind he's in next week and at least we are back to European time zones.
Very much a big hullabaloo about nothing and you are right scotsgeek, there is no story. Why say anything at all yawn

Just some breathing space from the hacks. Cahill will give his advice Andy will probably ignore it .

After the abuse he has directed to his coaches in the past many will just not want the hassle.

I am really p****d off.

Andy has supposedly been looking for a new coach since he dispensed with the services of Miles Maclagan - almost 8 months ago. What on earth has he been doing? Now he wants a coach for up to 35 weeks a year - I thought it was suposed to be 25 to 30 weeks.

Does he really know what's good for him? Despite that he will shortly be 24, I do not think that he has grown up sufficiently to deal with the appointment of an appropriate coach for his needs.

Using Adidas's player development programme is not for Andy. That scheme is for up and coming players. Andy is already there.

Give the guy some time to make, what could be, the most important decision of his career.

As much time as he needs, I can't think of anyone available that could do 30-35 weeks with him. No wonder he is struggling. Not the best time to change coach either, mid-season.

^Yes!
Everyone on here is so quick to criticise. Just because big names 'seem' free we have no idea whether they would be willing to travel. I'm guessing too many of them are way too happy to bear all to the media too for his liking, which is fair enough.
I think good for him for making it clear that he's actively looking for someone - for a while he was happy trying to go it alone.
He's always seemed to get along very well with his team - as for getting annoyed with them on court - he's human.

You make it sound as though the fact that he (which Andy now admits himself) needs a coach is a relatively NEW situation!  Whistle

If he had given Stefanki the respect Stefanki's due, he would have been set by now and possibly this conversation wouldn't be taking place - unless he had spent a lot of time yelling at Stefanki in which case we'd all still be having this conversation ... lol

Stefanki is a waste of space. He's an egomaniac and a hypocrite. I wouldn't want him anywhere near Andy.
