Andy Murray makes more changes to his coaching team
LONDON — Andy Murray has made further changes to his support team by splitting with assistant coach Dani Vallverdu and fitness trainer Jez Green.
The former Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion says in a statement released Wednesday that ”we sat down at the end of the season and decided that a change would be best for all of us.”
Murray hired Amelie Mauresmo as his coach in June, three months after parting ways with Ivan Lendl.
Mauresmo’s position has been under scrutiny in Britain after Murray was eliminated from Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the quarterfinals this year, then lost 6-0, 6-1 to Roger Federer in the ATP Finals in London.
Vallverdu has been a close friend of Murray’s for more than a decade since meeting at an academy in Spain.
