TORONTO - For the second day in a row, Andy Murray was being quizzed during a press conference about his new coach Amelie Mauresmo.

It's an intriguing, budding relationship. Murray, 27, won Wimbledon last year, and Mauresmo, 35, herself is a former women's singles champion at the All-England Club who also coached Marion Bartoli to the same Grand Slam title in London last year.

With longtime coach Ivan Lendl out, the Scotsman joined forces with Mauresmo for the grass-court season. He recently asked her to stay through the hard-court campaign, which includes this week's Rogers Cup in Toronto, where Murray dispatched young phenom Nick Kyrgios, 6-2, 6-2, Wednesday to advance to the third round at the tournament he has twice won.

So far, Murray says, so good.

"We've agreed to work together and, I think, from both sides, we're kind of willing to do what it takes to make it work out," Murray said. "Both of us, I think, have enjoyed it. I certainly have from my side."
