It surely seems that Andre Agassi and Novak Djokovic already started training together, as Novak is preparing for the Roland Garros. The two were spotted together on the tennis court and the first photos of the stars were published on social media.
Andre Agassi will have a very difficult mission in helping Novak shake his very bad luck and unsuccessful start of the season. Novak has a lot of pressure at Roland Garros, as he is actually the defending champion at this tournament. Novak wanted to make a huge change to get out of this bad state, so the famous tennis player decided earlier this month to fire his entire coaching team.
The decision actually came after Novak lost the Italian Open final in front of Alexander Zverev, a young player who seems to become a constant presence on top. Well, now Novak will benefit from the help and the advice of Andre Agassi and it is yet to see if this is what the Serbian player needed to overcome his series of losses.
For Agassi this will also be an interesting experience, as he actually has never coached a top player before. Furthermore, it has been claimed that the collaboration of the two is on trial now and Agassi is not planning on staying in France for the whole Roland Garros. The collaboration between the two could, however, become more permanent if it proves to be successful on both sides.
Since Novak fired his entire team, including Marian Vajda, who has been his long-time coach, he has been mostly alone in the last few weeks, having only his broker, Marko, and his spiritual guru, Pepe Imaz, to help him. An interesting thing to mention is that before being confirmed to help Novak with his preparation, Agassi was actually mentioned as a potential coach for Novak’s main rival, Andy Murray.
Well, finally Novak convinced Andre to join him, but it is yet to see if the collaboration will turn out to be a success.
