Mauresmo to coach Murray

Tennis: After spending his youth being coached by his mother, Andy Murray is turning to another woman to help him defend his Wimbledon title.

Murray hired former top-ranked player Amelie Mauresmo as his coach on Sunday, saying the appointment is initially for the grass-court season.

“I’m excited by the possibilities of the new partnership and Amelie is someone I have always looked up to and admired,” Murray said in a statement. “She’s faced adversity plenty of times in her career, but was an amazing player and won major titles, including Wimbledon.”

Ad honors Jefferson

NBA: Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan honored Al Jefferson by taking out a full-page advertisement Sunday in the Charlotte Observer after the 6-foot-10 center was named third-team All-NBA.

Jefferson has proven to be the franchise’s best free-agent signing ever.

He joined Charlotte last July and was the only player in the Eastern Conference to average a double-double for the 2013-14 season.

The ad praised “Big Al” for his “dedication and commitment to the franchise.”
