World No. 4 Andy Murray has confirmed that Spaniard Alex Corretja will continue as his main coach for at least the first half of 2011.

In a statement on Murray’s official website, the Scot also confirmed that Dani Vallverdu would carry on assisting him with training.

"Andy has taken time out from his busy pre-season fitness training to confirm that the current coaching set-up, with both Alex Corretja and Dani Vallverdu, will continue into the first half of next year.

"The guys are busy planning their tournament schedule for the early part of 2011 and are, as a team, very focused on preparing in the best way possible for each tournament."

Corretja, a former World No. 2 and two-time Roland Garros finalist, was initially employed in 2008 as a part-time consultant during for the spring European clay-court swing.

In July 2010, Corretja took on a wider role after Murray split with his former coach Miles Maclagan.

The 23-year-old Murray compiled a 46-18 match record on the season, including two ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles at Montreal and Shanghai (d. Federer both times).
