Andy Murray’s Coaches Over The Years

Andy Murray is currently working Esteban Carril. Carril previously worked with another Brit, Johanna Konta. He helped Konta reach the Top 10 in the world.

Carril was in the running to be Emma Raducanu’s coach but is now coaching Andy Murray. Jamie Delgado has coached Murray since 2016 but is likely to leave the team.

Speaking of Carril, Murray said:

As a person, he’s very calm and considered. He’s a good communicator as well which is certainly not one of my strengths so it’s something that I kind of look for in a coach, so that’s certainly a positive thing

Andy Murray has had many coaches over the years. He was coached by well-known former players such as Ivan Lendl, Àlex Corretja, Jonas Björkman, Brad Gilbert and Amelia Mauresmo.

Tommy Paul Wins His First Title In An Ugly Shirt

Tommy Paul won his first title at the 2021 Stockholm Open beating Denis Shapovalov 6–4, 2–6, 6–4. While Paul had a decent 2021, his title win was unexpected.

Paul beat fellow American Taylor Fritz, Andy Murray, and Frances Tiafoe on his way to the final. Paul said,

I’ve played very good matches. I think it’s been because I’ve had a lot of matches in a row in the past seven weeks, gaining confidence every week, and then also the vibes in Stockholm are amazing. I’m just having a lot of fun out on court, a lot of fun.

Sporting a bright purple shirt and a beard, Paul, who is only 24, looked at least a decade older. His bright purple shirt will probably be etched in people’s memory for a long time because you just can’t forget it. In many ways, it is similar to the ugly shorts that Stan Wawrinka wore on his run to the 2015 French Open.
