Great Britain's Andy Murray split with coach Amelie Mauresmo on 9 May, bringing to an end a partnership that began in June 2014. The split has seen rumours circulating on who will be Murray's new coach, with nine-time Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova favourite to slip into the role, as reported by the Telegraph.

The 59-year-old did not deny the possibility, revealing that she would like to return to coaching.

"Yes, I would be interested in coaching again, but right now I have got a lot on my plate- BT Sport, BBC, Tennis Channel and I do speaking engagements around the world. I was just in Singapore presenting the Women's Tennis Association finals last week, so I would have to give up something in order to do coaching because it takes a lot of effort," she said, as quoted by the Telegraph.

Since working with Mauresmo, the Scot has won seven titles but failed to win any major titles, while also losing his world number two ranking to Roger Federer after his loss to Novak Djokovic in the Madrid Open final.

While the split from Mauresmo came as a surprise to tennis fans around the world, Serena William's coach Patrick Mouratoglou claimed "nobody in tennis is surprised by the split".

The Frenchman spoke to BBC Sport revealing that tennis has codes which everyone knows how to interpret. He pointed out at Mauresmo not being in the players' box at the Miami Open earlier this year in a match where Murray was shocked by the unfancied Grigor Dimitrov as the final straw.

"Everyone knows everyone in the locker rooms and players lounges. Obviously something was wrong. The only time in his career when he could find this extra thing to win those matches against the top three and win Slams, the Olympics was when he was with Ivan.

"But even if he's not able to make that little extra difference, with his level of play he should be most of the time in the top four."
