Bjorkman will spend the summer with the British No 1 until at least the end of the US Open in September as main coach Amelie Mauresmo, who joined Murray’s team last June, prepares to have her first child in August.
The Swede was initially taken on a five-week trial, but Murray is looking forward to working more closely with the 43-year-old.
“We were on the tour for quite a few years together and I always got on very well with him,” Murray told Sky Sports News HQ.??
“As a coach, I don???t know him that well, because we only spent a few days together in Barcelona last week. But he???s a very calm guy.??
“He has a good way about him. As a player, he had a very good work ethic. His mentality on the court was very good and he obviously has a lot of experience of singles and doubles, which is good.??
“We???ll see this week how it goes but I get on well with him.”
