Who is Andy Murray talking about here?

Quote:
In June 2014, Murray hired former world number one player Amélie Mauresmo as his head coach, making her the first female coach of a top player on the men's side, and one of the few female coaches at the tour level for players of either sex, full stop. The move was also noteworthy because Murray had just a few years earlier ushered in the practice of hiring former elite tour players as coaches, tapping Ivan Lendl in 2012. This has now become standard, but even six years ago, it wasn't really done. So when word broke that Murray and Lendl were parting ways, it inspired a frenzy of anticipation about which boldface name the top Brit would anoint next. Needless to say, no one expected him to pick a girl. "When it first came out in the press that I may be working with a woman, I got a message from one of the players who is now coaching. He said to me: I love this game that you're playing with the press; maybe you should tell them tomorrow that you're considering working with a dog," Murray says. "That's the sort of stuff that was said when I was thinking about it." There were a few exceptions among top male players, notably Roger Federer, who commended Mauresmo in the media. After Murray proceeded to hire her, the sexism intensified. "The amount of criticism she got in comparison to any other coach I've ever worked with—it's not comparable at all," Murray says. "Now, when I lose a match, I get the blame. When I was working with her, it was always her fault."

Any idea, MTF? Who was still a player in 2014 but now a coach?

By the way, great article. I recommend it.

Re: Who is Andy Murray talking about here?

Let's be honest, his collaboration with Mauresmo was a flop.
Even on the WTA tour, the overwhelming majority of coaches are men.

Thats not honest...

Amelie turn useless Murray on clay in a factor on Clay, it was the biggest improvement in is game in the last years.

She don't have the luck that Ledl have, Murray make the run with Lendl because Nadal, Federer and Djok basically don't play..

Re: Who is Andy Murray talking about here?

A reason why many women do not coach that much in the WTA is because of the travel requirements. Many pros require their coaches to follow them wherever they are going and mothers with kids can't/don't really want to do that especially when the kids are young. Hence, some work as part time coaches or consultants.

Andy Murray is what happens when your mother becomes your coach and you end up a mothers boy.

Clay was Amelie's worst surface, and I don't know by what magic trick she turned Murray into a great clay-courter since they only spent about one month together on the European clay swing.

Probably Ljubicic, seems like an awful individual.

Ljubicic retired in 2012 and was already coaching in 2013.

Re: Who is Andy Murray talking about here?

In one of those ATP player questions videos, for the world tour finals IIRC, they asked their favorite movies, and Ljub mentioned a bunch of Croatian socially conscious ones, so I doubt he'd say that, but who knows.

article says in 2014 when the news came out he was still a player. Ljubicic was already a coach in 2013. Unless I misunderstood something...
