Andre Agassi to coach Novak Djokovic

World number two Novak Djokovic has confirmed that former world number one Amdre Agassi will be his new coach, Eurosport reports.

Following a tough start to the season Djokovic parted ways with his coaching staff and has since been operating without a designated coach.

There had been plenty of speculation about who would take over but following his defeat to Alexander Zverev in the final of the ATP Rome Masters Djokovic revealed that eight-times Grand Slam winner Agassi was his new trainer.

Djokovic said that he has been in contact with Agassi over the past few weeks and that the American has been watching his matches.

“We will be together in Paris. We talked on the phone two weeks ago. Then we’ll see what happens in the future.”

Djokovic added: “We are both excited about working together, but we have no long-term agreements and he is not going to be with me for the whole tournament.
