Andy Murray opens door for possible Emma Raducanu coaching link-up

Could Andy Murray one day coach Emma Raducanu? He has opened the door to the possibility. There are also a couple of young ATP stars on his wish-list too.

Andy Murray has opened the door for a potential future link-up with Emma Raducanu by naming her one of the players he'd like to one day coach.

Murray is currently focused on his own tennis, and he has said at the Hall of Fame Open in Newport this week that he is keen to make the most of every tournament he plays at this stage of his career.

However, injury has forced him to confront the spectre of life after playing earlier than most players, and he has often said coaching is something he could possibly consider.

Asked in a feature by the Hall of Fame Open which players he would like to one day coach, Murray had three top names in mind, as well as an up-and-coming British youngster.

“Female player would be Emma [Raducanu] and male player would be between [Carlos] Alcaraz, [Stefanos] Tsitsipas and Jack Draper," Murray said.

"They work hard, they seem like they love the sport. Alcaraz and Tsitsipas haven't won a slam yet. They’re obviously still very young and I think they have the potential to do it."

One of the other questions that Andy Murray was asked was what the weirdest thing he has done for his children.

Murray often posts on social media images of himself dressing up in silly costumes for the amusement of his children, and he had a simple answer.

“I mean I would do anything for them, to be honest.

"The dressing up is probably the thing that my wife would not do, and that's probably one of the things that I do for them that they like. I probably would not do it for anyone else."

Murray will continue his campaign at the Hall of Fame Open on Friday when he meets Alexander Bublik in the quarterfinals.
