Andy Murray confirms split with long-time coach Jamie Delgado
Andy Murray has split with his long-term coach Jamie Delgado ahead of the 2022 season, in a move that is not entirely unexpected.
Delgado has been in Murray’s team since 2016, helping him to a second Wimbledon title and the world No.1 spot in the same year.
He took over as the main coach from Ivan Lendl in 2017, though much of his time with the Scot has been spent rehabbing, with Murray’s career derailed by hip injuries.
He has now left Murray’s team to go and work with Canadian Denis Shapovalov, with the move seemingly in the making for some time as Murray had already confirmed he was looking to work with a new coach in 2022 after a trial with Esteban Carril at a tournament in Stockholm last month.
