Djokovic banks on Agassi’s feel-good factor
DEFENDING champion Novak Djokovic says he is excited to have created a “new vibe” by inviting Andre Agassi to work with him during the French Open which starts on Sunday.
World No 2 Djokovic parted company with his entire coaching team earlier this month, admitting he needed to rediscover his spark after some disappointing results this year.
American eight-time grand slam champion Agassi, 47, has taken on a coaching role for the first time since ending his glittering playing career in 2006.
“It feels like a new chapter. Kind of creating a new team, creating a new vibe, it feels exciting,” the 30-year-old winner of 12 grand slam titles told a news conference.
