Wimbledon 2014: Andy Murray's campaign impresses Amelie Mauresmo

Amelie Mauresmo admits she has been impressed by Andy Murray’s performances at Wimbledon so far.
Murray has not dropped a set on his way to the quarter-finals, where he is likely to face his stiffest test so far against 11th seed Grigor Dimitrov on Wednesday.
The defending champion's fine form means Mauresmo's first experience of being Murray's coach at a grand slam has been largely stress free.
"It's gone well," said the Frenchwoman. "Obviously the results are a big part of it and then how he's been playing and handling everything. I'm looking forward to the next round.
"He's been pretty consistent in his first four matches. Definitely he's going to have a big test against Grigor. I'm not going to go deep into this but it's great."

Mauresmo was thrust into the limelight when Murray announced her as his new coach after losing in the semi-finals of the French Open, but she is delighted with how things are going.
"Things are smooth," she said. "Everyone has really made me welcome in the team and I've got to know them all much better now. Things are smoother and smoother I would say."
Murray and Mauresmo's partnership is initially just for the grass-court season, and the pair have not had any discussions about the future yet.
Mauresmo added: "I think we are both focusing on what's going on here and we'll see for that later."
Dimitrov is on an eight-match winning streak after succeeding Murray as Queen's Club champion two weeks ago.
British No 1 Murray said: "He's a more mature player now, I think. He makes better decisions on the court than he used to. Watching him play, his strokes and stuff, technically he hasn't made many changes to his game.
"But he's playing higher-percentage tennis, making better decisions. That adds up to winning many more matches.
"He can obviously hit a lot of different shots. He has a lot of variety in his game. Sometimes it takes time to know how to use that properly. He's starting to do that now."
