The world number four has been without a permanent coach for some time now; he parted ways with Alex Corretja in March, and has since been calling on the services of people such as Sven Groeneveld and Darren Cahill.

This has led him to comment that he wanted to find himself a suitable coach before the beginning of Wimbledon in the summer. However, following his third-round Madrid Open defeat, he has now stated that he is currently more than happy to continue working with his part-time team and the appointment of a new permanent coach before Wimbledon is looking increasingly unlikely.

The young Scot appears in no particular hurry to find himself a permanent coaching staff.

"It's looking that way. I'm not 100% sure yet. But I quite liked the way it worked this week." stated Murray, when asked whether his current coaching situation was likely to remain for the near future.

The 23-year-old star is currently utilising coaching staff who have been provided from his sponsor's player development program. Murray has admitted that he is content to continue his relationship with his current relationship in the run up to the summer's tournaments.

"Obviously next week I can work with them again, and also in the buildup to the French Open," added Murray.

"They have a lot of good guys, who've worked with experienced players, that can definitely help. They all seem very motivated to help me.”

Meanwhile, Victor Chandler, Boylesport and BetFred offer 7/2 odds that Roger Federer will take an all-time record-equalling Wimbledon title.
