Andy Murray wants to work with Amelie Mauresmo for 'long term'

Andy Murray wants Amelie Mauresmo to remain as his coach for the "foreseeable future".

The Briton announced the link-up with the French former Wimbledon champion shortly before the grass-court season.

But the partnership was thrown into doubt after Grigor Dimitrov defeated Murray in the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

"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, 27, said on Sunday.

Photographs of Mauresmo at Murray's recent training camp in Miamiexternal-link suggested the partnership would continue, and at a press conference ahead of this week's Rogers Cup in Toronto the British number one revealed their time together in Florida had been successful.

"I really enjoy working with her, she's helped me a lot," he said.

"She integrated well with the rest of the team. It's been a good start. Now it's about me producing the results."

Murray's Wimbledon exit saw him drop to 10th in the world rankings but he will set about improving his position in Canada this week, where he is the eighth seed.

The Cincinnati Masters follows next week before attention switches to the US Open in New York, starting on August 25.

Mauresmo and assistant coach Dani Vallverdu will both be at Flushing Meadows for the final Grand Slam of 2014.

"I sat down with her the day after Wimbledon, we made a plan for the next few months, in the build up to the US Open," Murray continued.

"Dani and Amelie will both be there at the US Open. That's the plan for now, but I plan on working with her for longer than post-US Open, for sure."

Mauresmo, 35, had pledged not to make any major changes to Murray's game ahead of the defence of both his Queen's and Wimbledon titles this summer.

However, Murray admitted he needed to make improvements to his game following the straight-sets defeat by Dimitrov.

The Scot had been without a coach since the departure of Ivan Lendl in March, with the pair having worked together for two years in which the Scot won Olympic gold, the 2012 US Open and last year's Wimbledon.
