World number four Andy Murray has said it is unlikely he will have a permanent coach in place until after Wimbledon.

Murray had stated he wanted to appoint someone by then but, after his third-round Madrid Open exit, he is happy to work with a part-time team for now.

When asked if the status quo would remain, he said: "It's looking that way. I'm not 100% sure yet. But I quite liked the way it worked this week."

The Scot, 23, is using coaches from his sponsor's player development programme.

Following his parting of the ways with Alex Corretja in March, Murray is calling upon help from individuals such as Darren Cahill and Sven Groeneveld.

"Obviously next week I can work with them again, and also in the buildup to the French Open," said Murray.

"They have a lot of good guys, who've worked with experienced players, that can definitely help. They all seem very motivated to help me.

"I get on well with all of them, so I'll definitely think about it. I'll get a better feel for it over the next couple of weeks… I trust the guys I've got around me just now, and I just need to keep working hard."

Murray is heading to Italy on Friday, where he will begin his preparations for next week's Rome Masters.
