London: British Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has admitted that it is `not possible` for him to appoint a new coach before the French Open as his body and spirit recovers from various forms of bruising.
The Scot had an encouraging but frustrating quarter-final against Rafael Nadal in the Rome Masters on Friday - their first encounter in two-and-a-half years and the Spaniard`s 14th win out of 19, and his fifth straight on clay.
According to The Guardian, the world No.8, who parted ways with his coach Ivan Lendl in March after a two-year association, confirmed that he would speaking to a few people in the next few days, although he added that the talks would depend on how quick someone may want the job rather than the money or the contract.
Admitting that he had a tricky time since March after coming back from back surgery, Murray also said that he was expecting to start playing better and be more physically fit this time, adding that it is tough to build things up 100 percent after such situations.
However, Murray said that he is excited at the prospect of playing at Roland Garros this year as he it last year, adding that he has had to relearn the art of patience in his urge to rediscover his pre-surgery form, a summer in which he won Wimbledon to go with the Olympic gold medal and the US Open title the year before.
