With Andy Murray looking to have a new coach by the start of the French Open which begins at the end of May, how has the Scot performed so far this year?

Murray had an extremely promising two-year spell alongside now ex-coach Ivan Lendl, who he parted company with last month.

In the two years Murray worked with Lendl, he won Olympic gold at London 2012 as well as winning the US Open and historically winning Wimbledon.

Speaking to BBC Sport, the 26-year-old proved he is adamant he will take his time with finding a new coach.

"There's a lot of factors you need to look at," he commented. "I don't want to get someone just because they've won a lot of tournaments or were great players." 

Murray had a good start to the year eventually exiting the Australian Open with a hard fought quarter-final loss to Roger Federer in January.

The low in Murray's performances this year came in March when he lost to Milos Raonic of Canada in the fourth round of the Indian Wells BNP Paribas Open.

This was then followed by a defeat to Novak Djokovic in the quarter-final of the Sony Open Tennis miami Masters.

Last weekend Murray also lost his singles match against Fabio Fognini representing Great Britain in the Davis Cup despite having put in an excellent doubles performance alongside Colin Fleming.

The Scotsman is currently taking time out to rest a niggling back injury which caused him to withdraw from the French Open last year.

When he returns to full fitness Murray will be looking to prove his capability on home turf for the second year running by retaining both his Queen's Club and Wimbledon crowns.
