Robson and Murray both searching for new coaches.

Andy Murray is still said to be in no hurry to appoint a new coach and has again engaged his old friend Dani Vallverdu, a Venezuelan Davis Cup player, for training sessions in London.

Sources close to the player say he may see out the rest of the season with Vallverdu in tow and with input from Spaniard Alex Corretja.

Laura Robson is seeking a new coach to take her on to the crucial next stage and is splitting with Martijn Bok, who guided her to the Wimbledon junior title at 14.

Robson will step up the number of tournaments she plays next season because she will be 17, and the Dutchman does not wish to assist with a busier schedule.

The parting appears amicable and Bok will accompany Robson in Asia over the next few weeks for a series of tournaments that will wrap up her season.

After that, the search will be on for someone to build on her steady – if unspectacular – progress this season, in which the number of events she could play has been restricted due to age regulations.

Robson spends a considerable amount of time training at the Mouratoglou Academy just outside Paris, and Bok’s successor will not necessarily be British.
