Andy Murray could be the one-day coach Emma Radukanu – but first he is eyeing trophy success at Indian Wells.
British tennis superstars are both wildcards at the glamorous California event – one of the biggest tournaments of the year after the Grand Slam.
Radukanu, 18, will compete in her first event as a qualifier at the US Open last month without losing a set.
He was given a wildcard for the event – despite being now ranked 22nd in the world.
This is because the ranking of the tournament was decided prior to his spectacular Flushing Meadows run.
Meanwhile, Murray had a direct entry into the main draw of the tournament, which ran from October 4 to 17.
World No. 109 is too low to automatically qualify in the rankings but Masters 1000 organizers offered the 2009 runner-up a spot.

Scott, who last played at Indian Wells in 2017, reached the quarterfinals in Metz and then the second round in San Diego in late September.
He said: “I think I played better this week than Cincinnati and Winston-Salem, for example.
“I played a very good match at the US Open. But I am not interested in playing well and losing. I want to win these matches.
“My goal is not to get into the top 100. I want to be back in the top 10, it will be something that will motivate me in terms of goals.”

but Wire Reckon Murray may be in Radukanu’s camp once he turns off his racket and retires.
The son of Judy, a two-time Wimbledon winner and former Fed Cup captain, has always been a big supporter of the women’s game and will have plenty of wisdom and advice on how to move forward.
Radukanu is currently looking for a new coach after splitting from short-term trainer Andrew Richardson following New York’s Fairytale and a £1.8m prize check.
The Kent teenager – the first British woman to win a Grand Slam since 1977 – is looking for someone with more experience at the top of world sport.
She was assaulting LTA coach Matt James at the National Tennis Center before returning to the US.
Along with Murray’s father-in-law Nigel Sears, James was part of his coaching team during his success at Wimbledon this year.
Darren Cahill would be a great appointment after the recent split of the veteran Australian team from Simona Halep six years later.
Naomi Osaka’s coach Wim Fisset, Joe Konta’s former guru Esteban Carrill and British guru Ian Hughes are also all possible options.
Radukanu has also entered the Kremlin Cup in Moscow and the Transylvania Open in Romania – her father’s homeland – later in October.
