Andy Murray and Amelie Mauresmo
Murray and Mauresmo initially worked together during the short grass-court season.

Andy Murray has agreed to retain coach Amelie Mauresmo on a long-term basis beyond the upcoming US Open, according to the British No.1

The two-time grand slam winner recruited Mauresmo, 35, for the grass court season which saw him make early exits from the Aegon Championships and Wimbledon.

But ahead of the start of Murray's American hard court campaign, the Scot says he is ready to enter into a permanent relationship with the former Australian Open and Wimbledon champion.

"We've agreed to work together and I think both sides were willing to do what it takes to make it work long-term," Murray said ahead of the Rogers Cup this week.

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

"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. Dani [Vallverdu] and Amélie 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's future as Murray's coach was clouded in uncertainty after the 27 year old was knocked out of the third round at Queen's by Radek Stepanek before being shocked in straight sets by Grigor Dimitrov at SW19.

Murray split with former coach Ivan Lendl in March after the pair were unable to agree on a regular working relationship but it is understood Mauresmo has committed to travelling with the Olympic singles champion from 2012 for 25 weeks of the year.

The Rogers Cup in Toronto is followed by the ATP 1000 event in Cincinnati, prior to the US Open – the final major of the year – which starts on 25 August.
