LONDON (AP) - Fourth-ranked Andy Murray is splitting with coach Miles Maclagan after less than three years.

A statement on the British player's website on Tuesday said that ``following a review of his coaching needs, Andy has parted company'' with Maclagan.

The statement says ``the situation'' will be reviewed after the Aug. 30-Sept. 12 U.S. Open.

Still searching for his first Grand Slam title, the 23-year-old Murray has been coached by Maclagan since he replaced Brad Gilbert in 2007.

Murray thanked Maclagan for ``his positive contribution to my career. We have had a lot of success and fun working together.''

Murray is in Los Angeles competing in the Farmers Classic - his first tournament since losing in the semifinals at Wimbledon.
