Mauresmo returns for Murray

Andy Murray has parted company with stand-in coach Jonas Bjorkman ahead of the Australian Open in January following the return of Amelie Mauresmo to his Dubai camp.

Mauresmo was temporarily replaced by Bjorkman in order to take a break from the sport to give birth to her first child in August.

The world number two confirmed Bjorkman's departure on Facebook, thanking him for helping out.

"Nice to have Amelie back in the team out in Dubai. Thanks to Jonas for helping out this year. I enjoyed working with one of the nicest guys on the tour, bring on 2016."

It remains unclear as to what extent the working relationship between Mauresmo and Murray will be, since the French former world number one gave birth recently.

The Scot is expected to add a full-time member to his coaching staff to assist Mauresmo, but any appointment is expected to be made after his Australian Open campaign.
