Three weeks after sacking his entire coaching crew, Novak Djokovic has appointed former World No 1, Andre Agassi as his new coach.
The 47-year-old will coach Djokovic to the upcoming French Open next weekend.
According to Djokovic, “I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we decided to get together in Paris, so he’s going to be there. We’ll see what the future brings. We are both excited to work together and see where it takes us. We don’t have any long-term commitment. It’s just us trying to get to know each other in Paris 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.”
Agassi won eight Grand Slam titles, including the French Open in 1999, before retiring in 2006.
