Andy Murray is set to have Johanna Konta’s former coach Esteban Carril join his team.

The Spaniard performed a trial with Emma Raducanu last month and he had appeared the front-runner to become her full-time coach.

The 18-year-old arrived in Austria on Saturday for her final tournament of the season, the Upper Austria Ladies Linz, accompanied only by her mother Renee and agent Chris Helliar.

Carril helped develop Johanna Konta into a top-10 player and has most recently been working with another British player, Katie Swan, who revealed on Sunday after winning a lower-tier title in Estonia that it would be their final tournament together.

Swan is managed by Murray’s 77 agency and Carril will now head to the Stockholm Open for a trial week, with a view to joining the Scot’s team moving forward.

Carril was working at the National Academy in Stirling as the highest-profile coach working at the Lawn Tennis Association’s (LTA) facility but left last year.

As the LTA’s performance advisor to the GB National Tennis Academy it was intended he would play a “crucial role” in nurturing the next generation of British players.
