Andy Murray says he will take his time over selecting a new coach following his split from Miles Maclagan last month.

The world No4 revealed he has had offers from various parties, but with the US Open just weeks away, is yet to formally discuss the role with anyone.

“I’ve had a few offers but I haven’t actually spoken to anybody about it yet,” he told BBC Scotland. “There are a lot of good coaches.

“I don’t want to mess up a decision like this because I’m hoping it will be a four or five-year relationship. I’m hoping this is going to be my peak, so I need to pick a good one.”

Murray added that he hopes a new coach will be able to help him add a more aggressive aspect to his game - an attribute many have claimed the Scot has in the past been lacking.

“It’s easy to suggest that I need to play more aggressively but you need to be taught how to play that way – it’s something you need to practice a lot, work on the movement with specific drills. That might be something I’m looking for.

“But I can’t get away from the core of my game. The way that I play naturally is always going to be the way that wins me most matches.”
