Andy Murray Amelie Mauresmo Coach
Having former French player Mauresmo as Murray's coach is being seen by many as a good decision -- one that can work in Murray's favour in the near future.

Andy Murray has another woman in his life. But this is one woman Murray's girlfriend Kim Sears is quite 'pleased' about. After all, Amelie Mauresmo -- a two time Grand Slam champion -- will help the Scott perform on court.

The Wimbledon champion, who parted ways with Ivan Lendl in March, chose to get Mauresmo's assistance, a decision which was welcomed by the entire tennis fraternity as Murray became one of the first leading men's tennis player to have a female coach.

"I'm excited by the possibilities of the new partnership and Amelie is someone I have always looked up to and admired," Murray said. And while Lendl has been credited to have given Murray's tennis a lethal edge, Mauresmo is expected to polish the rough edges and create a consistent champion.
