World number nine Andy Murray has declared that his partnership with coach Amelie Mauresmo is a "long-term" arrangement, despite a disappointing experience at Wimbledon.

Murray hired the former women's world number one shortly before the grass-court season, but his defence of the Wimbledon title he won in 2013 ended in the quarter-finals.

The Scot, however, says that he has enjoyed working with the Frenchwoman and is eager to pursue their collaboration.

"We've agreed to work together and I think from both sides we're willing to do what it takes to make it work long-term," Murray told BBC Sport ahead of the Rogers Cup in Toronto.

"I really enjoy working with her, she's helped me a lot. She integrated well with the rest of the team. It's been a good start. Now it's about me producing the results."
