Andy Murray is set to continue his ground-breaking partnership with coach Amelie Mauresmo.

The pair initially teamed up just for the grass-court season but had talks immediately after Murray's quarter-final loss to Grigor Dimitrov at Wimbledon.

Murray had made it clear he would like to continue working with the Frenchwoman, having enjoyed the experience despite the disappointing end to his Wimbledon title defence.

But, with no confirmation forthcoming since the championships, doubts had begun to grow about whether they could agree a deal that suited both.

The key factor for Murray will have been the amount of time Mauresmo is prepared to travel with him.

But photographs from Murray's training camp in Miami showed Mauresmo with him and the rest of his team, indicating an announcement of an agreement is close.

It is understood that could come in the next few days as Murray builds up to his next tournament in Canada at the start of August.
