Paris - Andy Murray has said on Friday there was a "fifty/fifty" chance he would have a new coach in place before he starts the defence of his Wimbledon crown later this month.

Speaking after a crushing 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 defeat to top seed and title-holder Rafael Nadal in the French Open semi-finals, Murray said he doubted the fact he is currently without a coach contributed toward his defeat.

Asked if he would name a new coach in time for Wimbledon Murray replied: "I haven't spoken to anyone since the tournament (in Paris) began. But, yeah, we'll see over the next few days what happens.

"I don't know. I don't know. I would hope to have someone in place. I don't know. 50/50 maybe? I don't know."

Murray has been without a coach since Ivan Lendl walked away from the position in March.

Under the tutelage of the Czech legend, Murray won the US Open and Olympic title in 2012, adding the crown jewel of Wimbledon last year.

But following back surgery late last year and Lendl's departure he has struggled to get back to his best level and his last title win remains Wimbledon last July.
