British number one Andy Murray has announced that Spaniard Alex Corretja will continue in his role as his main coach for at least the first half of 2011.

Corretja, a former world number two, took up the role in July following Murray’s split with former coach Miles Maclagan.

Now, despite reported interest from Boris Becker, the 23-year-old Scot is set stick with the same team as he continues his bid for a first grand slam next year.

“Andy has taken time out from his busy pre-season fitness training to confirm that the current coaching set-up, with both Alex Corretja and Dani Vallverdu, will continue into the first half of next year,” read a statement on Murray’s website.

“The guys are busy planning their tournament schedule for the early part of 2011 and are, as a team, very focused on preparing in the best way possible for each tournament.”
