Andy Murray revealed that he will be announcing his new coach on Friday from the list of "seven to eight" shortlisted candidates.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, Murray said: "(It could be a man) or woman ... there's seven or eight people I've got down on a list just now.

"In a perfect world, I would have someone in place before the French Open, but it's hard because there a lot of things that go into it with contracts and finances and stuff like that."

"It is about speaking to a few people trying to find the right fit. I hadn't done that until 10 days ago. I wanted to concentrate on a few tournaments. Now I've had a bit of a break, I've had a chance to do that."


Murray has not yet decided whether to choose a renowned coach or go down the route of appointing a former top professional.

"It could be either," he said. "It's about how the two of you get on, how they see your game and how you are developing and the amount of time they can give you to do the job properly."

"They also need to fit in with the team because I'm not going to clear out all of the guys I work with and bring a coach in who wants to do things completely differently."

Murray explained that he did not have to formally interview all those on his list.

"You don't necessarily have to speak to that person," he said. "There's a few other people you can chat to to find out whether they'd be interested and whether they would be capable of giving the time."

"There's people on there you don't know that well, so it's good to get opinions from other people."

"That can help form a decision to get down to a smaller number on the shortlist. Then you end up speaking to a couple of people and decide on the person that you like the most and think would be the right fit."

won't be Hingis, that's for sure, she has too much history with Englishmen for Kim to handle...

So, perhaps Navratilova, she's fitting all possible descriptions and multi-Slam winner, like multi-mega-multi..
