Nice to have Amelie back in the team out in Dubai. Thanks to Jonas for helping out this year. I enjoyed working with one of the nicest guys on the tour, bring on 2016.

Mauresmo, who gave birth to a son, Aaron, on August 16, told Murray she will be available to travel the ATP Tour between 22 and 24 weeks during the 2016 season, according to the Daily Mail.

"I really enjoy working with her," Murray told the newspaper said. "The last six months not seeing her, it's just nice to have her back as part of the team, and get that continuity going again."

Murray praised Bjorkman for stepping up to help him "at a difficult time."

"It wasn't so much a split. Jonas came in sort of the middle part of this year after we found out Amelie was pregnant and wasn't going to be able to travel with me the second part of the year," Murray said today in an IPTL chat with fans. "I was waiting to see whether Amelie would want to come back to work with me after she had a few months at home with her baby. Thankfully she did and she's here in Dubai with me. That was basically what happened.

"I enjoyed working with Jonas. He's a very, very nice man, who I get on with very well, and he came in and helped me at a difficult time when I really needed someone. So I appreciate that."  

Murray's wife, Kim, is scheduled to give birth to the couple's first child in February. Murray told the Daily Mail if the baby is born in January he would pull out of the Australian Open, which starts on January 18th.

"I'd go home. For sure, yes," Murray told the Daily Mail. "I want to make sure at the beginning I am there as much as I can be to try and help out, just be there for whatever is really required of me."

The 28-year-old Scot said he's looking forward to fatherhood and starting a family.

"I am excited about that," he said. "People have asked me, 'Do you think it will be a distraction?' It might be a distraction but it's a good distraction.

"It's actually not good to all the time be just concentrating on tennis and your training all of the time. It is important ... when you finish on the practice court, be able to just go away and be with your friends and your family.''
