Andy Murray has defended coach Amelie Mauresmo after former British number one Tim Henman said the Scot had not been “playing the right way” recently, questioning the partnership, AFP reports.
Henman claimed earlier this month that double Grand Slam winner Murray, who has slipped to sixth in the world rankings, was letting his opponents dictate matches and needed to play more offensively.
“(It’s) certainly not true, her telling me to play defensively, so I don’t agree with that,” former world number two Murray told reporters in Manila.

“That’s the sort of mindset and style that I want to play,” the 27-year-old added.
