Andy Murray, top seed at this year’s Farmers Classic in Los Angeles, debuted on the home turf of the L.A. Dodgers with a swing and a miss on the practice courts at the UCLA Tennis Center. Murray, who announced yesterday that he and coach Miles Maclaglan along with part-time consultant Alex Corretja had all parted ways, showed up on an outside court to hit around with ATP pro Andre Sa.
No word yet on who might yet take over the coaching reigns for Murray although ESPN analyst and Adidas team consultant Darren Cahill is the heavy favorite. Perhaps when Cahill shows up to do commentary on the final rounds of the Farmers Classic this weekend, he can ask Murray himself live on air. Or better yet, in true Hollywood style, they should have a nice lunch at The Ivy over a cobb salad (hold the dressing and the eggs) while waving at Tom Cruise and David Beckham at the table next to them.
I kid, of course. But hey, this is L.A.
