Lawn Tennis Association chief executive John Crowther is confident of recruiting John McEnroe to inject fresh impetus into the game in Britain.

Following another disappointing Wimbledon - with the exception of Tim Henman - the annual question is being asked: Where is the next star of the future?

David Felgate's appointment as performance director has been applauded and will hopefully help, and now Crowther is actively pursuing McEnroe for further assistance.

It is envisaged McEnroe will aid in the running of three training camps over a year-long period, helping teenagers aged 16 and upwards, as well as those senior players attempting to take the next step on the tour circuit.

Talks have already taken place between Crowther and McEnroe, with more planned, before hopefully a deal is confirmed within the next couple of months.

John McEnroe claimed he wanted to reignite British tennis after taking control of his first coaching session for the Lawn Tennis Association on Monday.

McEnroe was at Queen's Club in west London to run the rule over the country's leading performance junior squad.

The three-times Wimbledon champion has agreed a loose and open-ended coaching arrangement with the LTA which will involve him working alongside performance director David Felgate when his timetable permits.

Well this is good news for british tennis.
