MADRID – Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has not ruled out seven-time Grand Slam title winner John McEnroe as his next coach.
Murray has been without a coach since splitting from Ivan Lendl in March and American legend McEnroe has already expressed an interest in working with the 26-year-old.
“Every player would consider someone with his credentials,” Murray told the BBC at the Madrid Masters.
“I like listening to him commentate and he has a lot to offer as well. It’s interesting but if anything comes from it, who knows?
“When you are very competitive as a player, you are likely to be the same as a coach and that’s also a benefit. He was a great player and he’s always kept an interest in the game, which is important. He has a great knowledge of the sport.”
McEnroe, 55, revealed his interest in hooking up with Murray on a visit to Scotland last week.
“If Andy Murray picked up the phone and asked me to coach him, of course I would think about it,” said the former No. 1.
