Andy Murray has said that he would have no problem replacing former coach Ivan Lendel, with a female coach.

The Wimbledon champion, who has been supported by his mother from a young age, told the BBC:"I've spoken to a few people, male and female, I've also spoken to a couple of people to get some advice as well, also male and female.

He went on to say: "Not people that are necessarily going to coach me, but people that could advise me on certain people. 

"I think that's what most players do when they're searching for a coach."

Murray will be the first top name male player to appoint a female coach, if he decides to do so.

Having received criticism from other players on his mum Judy's support he responded: "There have been ex-players and stuff that have said, 'Oh, your mum shouldn't be around or she shouldn't come and support you or come to watch'. You know, it's silly. Everyone is entitled to have the team around them that they want."

Murray has eased his way into the third round of the French Open with a 6-3,6-1,6-3 win Marinko Matosevic.

He will play Phillip Kolschreiber in the next round and was pleased with his performance saying: "I attacked it very well. My timing was there on both sides, forehand and backhand side on that shot. That was for me was the best part of my game today."
