Former British number one Tim Henman has said that Andy Murray does not need to look too far for a new coach following his decision to part ways with Ivan Lendl last week.
Henman believes that there is a replacement coach for Murray in his team already, someone who is experienced with his history and his injuries he has suffered this year – his name, Jamie Delgado.
Delgado has been around the Murray camp for years and according to Henman, is fully capable of becoming the Scot’s main coach.
Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek Henman said: "With Andy's experience and knowledge of the game, I wouldn't think he needs to bring another person into the team," as per The Express.
"He's got Jamie who played to a decent level and did a very good coaching job with Gilles Muller first, and has been with Andy for a good couple of years and understands him as well as anyone.
"It's been well documented that Andy has been having a tough time with his hip but he had a great couple of periods with Lendl and I think it's more about focusing on the positives and the things the whole team has learned."
Although Murray took part in a charity match against Roger Federer in Glasgow a couple of weeks ago some felt he still didn't look entirely comfortable in between points.
But Henman is certain the three-time Grand Slam winner can hit the ground running when the new season gets underway in 2018.
He added: "Having seen him train and practice at Wimbledon quite a lot, he is working unbelievably hard and making big strides.
"Most people who have just finished the year now will be having time off before thinking about their pre-season, but Andy's had weeks and months to really build up.
"I think that with still six or seven weeks before the season starts, I'm quite confident that he is going to be back ready and raring to go."
