Andy Murray has said that he is not sure if he would be able to appoint a new head coach before the start of this year’s Wimbledon Championship.
Murray hasn’t had anybody as head coach since the last 3 months. Ivan Lendl who helped the Scot achieve a lot of success parted ways with him earlier this year. Thereafter, a lot of names have popped up including some of the former greats, but, Murray hasn’t got in touch with anybody.
He, however, had disclosed in one of his interviews a couple of weeks back that he had decided who was going to be his next coach, but, he would appoint him only at an appropriate time.
After his defeat against Rafael Nadal in the semi final of the French Open, when Murray was asked about the coach appointment, he said, “There is no development in that regard in the last couple of weeks. I haven’t had a chat with anyone. May be in the near future, I would approach somebody. I am not sure, but, let’s see.”
Meanwhile, Murray admitted the fact that the defeat that he suffered against Nadal was not easy to sink in.
Talking about the game, the Scot said, “You get frustrated when you lose matches like these. I think I tried too many things in desperation and lost the plot. I probably needed to be a little more relaxed.”
“You don’t forget such days in a heartbeat. It takes time, but, a lot of games have been coming up and it’s important for me to shift my focus onto them. I can’t change what has already happened. So, it’s better to think about future.”
The next tournament that Murray will participate in is the Aegon Championships.
