ROME—Andy Murray is taking his time finding a coaching replacement for the departed Ivan Lendl because he wants to find a long-term solution.

The Wimbledon champion says while it would be "ideal" to have someone in place before the French Open -- which starts in two weeks — he hasn't talked to any possibilities yet.

Speaking ahead of the Italian Open, Murray says, "It's very important that whoever it is knows I want it to be a long-term thing, and that's one of the reasons why I haven't put in a lot of phone calls just now. I don't want to mess up and just pick anyone."

Murray parted ways in March with Lendl, who helped to turn him from a four-time Grand Slam runner-up into a two-time major champion.
