Andy Murray has split with his long-time coach Jamie Delgado as he begins preparation for the 2022 Australian Open.

The former World No 1 had, since the Stockholm Open last month, been working on a trial basis with Johanna Konta’s former coach Esteban Carril. That partnership, too, ended as Murray now employs the services of German coach Jan De Witt.

Delgado first joined Murray’s team in early 2016, when the three-time Grand Slam champion was trained by Ivan Lendl.

That year, the Brit won his second Wimbledon title and ended the year as the No 1 player.
