Novak Djokovic has been having quite a rough period of time when it comes to his tennis career. The star just seems unable to keep his success and to regain his series of wins. And he now decided to make a big change. Novak will be coached by famous tennis player Andre Agassi. At least for a few matches, it has been claimed.
Andre will be helping the famous tennis player to prepare for the French Open, title that Novak has to defend next week. Novak was definitely shaken by his last defeat in front of Alexander Zverev, who did an amazing march in Rome and took home the title. Zverev proved to be an amazing tennis player and without a doubt he will continue to make his presence known on the tennis field in the future, as well.
Novak needs to forget about this defeat as fast as possible and start preparing for the new tournament. The star maybe will get the support that he needs from Andre. “I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we decided to get together in Paris. We don’t have any long-term commitment, it’s just us trying to get to know each other a little bit. He will not stay the whole tournament. He’s going to stay only to a certain time, and then we’ll see after that what’s going to happen,” Novak said.
It is unclear at the moment if Andre will take a more serious commitment and stay with Novak for longer time, but Novak seemed very optimistic about this collaboration in his statement. “Andre is someone that I have tremendous respect for as a person and as a player. He has been through everything that I’m going through,” Novak stated.
The famous tennis player also said that he feels that Andre can bring an overall positive contribution to his life. “He understands the game amazingly well. I am enjoying every conversation that I have with him. Also, he’s someone that nurtures family values, philanthropic work. He’s a very humble man, very educated. He’s a person that can contribute to my life on and off the court a lot. I’m very excited to see what is ahead of us,” Novak concluded.
