Andy Murray has told of how he believes he needs a permanent solution to his coaching woes after falling down the current world rankings of late.
Murray, now 34, gained his last Grand Slam title in 2016 at Wimbledon with a straight sets win over Milos Raonic.
However, trophies have dried up for Murray since, and he has yet to progress past the third round of any major tournament since 2018.
His downturn in form may have come through the appointment of coach Jamie Delgado, who he won two trophies under in the first year of coaching.
He then switched to Jan De Witt in 2021, before his spell was cut short after a year.
Now attention turns to Daniel Vallverdu, with the Venezuelan being appointed as Murray’s third coach in as many years having coached him between 2010 and 2014.
And the Scot has accepted the fact that he needs a permanent coach if he is to win any more career titles.
“I’m just trying to get a more permanent solution so that I can have consistency in terms of the things that I’m working on, because having different messages from people who are working with you each week is not ideal,” he said.
“I think so because if I look at the beginning of this year and obviously the result [against Auger-Aliassime] didn’t go my way, but there has been some positive signs.
“I really feel like my tennis can be a lot better.
Murray is currently ranked 95th in the world.
He hasn’t been world No 1 since 2017 after his double victory.
And he will be looking to change that at Wimbledon later this year.
