Andy Murray appears to be considering former world No. 1 John McEnroe as a potential coach.

The British No. 1 told BBC Sports that “anyone would consider someone with his credentials.”

“I speak to him [McEnroe] a lot around tournaments. I have always got on well with him and he has always said nice things to me and about me. He obviously has a lot to offer. It is interesting – whether anything comes from it, who knows?

McEnroe, a seven-time Grand Slam singles champion, has never coached professionally.

“Obviously when someone like that shows an interest, you have to take that into consideration because he is a great tennis player. He loves the game, is very passionate about it and was extremely competitive as well. When you are very competitive as a player, you are likely to be so as a coach as well and that is also of benefit.”

The British No. 1 has not won a title since his historic run to the Wimbledon Championships title, snapping a 77-year drought for British male singles champions. Murray’s best performances this season have been quarter-final appearances in Melbourne and Miami, as well as the semi-final in Acapulco, where he lost to budding Bulgarian talent Grigor Dimitrov.

Murray will face Nicolas Almagro in the second round of the Mutua Madrid Open on Wednesday afternoon.
