Wimbledon champion Andy Murray appointed Frenchwoman Amelie Mauresmo as his new coach on Sunday.

Murray's management team announced in a statement that Mauresmo will initially work with the Scot for his grass-court campaign, which gets under way at Queen's Club this week in the build-up to his defence of the Wimbledon crown.

Murray had been searching for a coach since parting ways with Ivan Lendl in March and was linked with former world number one Mauresmo after she watched his match against Andrey Golubev at the French Open.

The 27-year-old's decision to hire a woman will be seen by some as a gamble, but Mauresmo, who won Wimbledon in 2006 before retiring in 2009, already has experience of coaching a male player after a spell with compatriot Michael Llodra.
