Djokovic drops Martin from coaching team

MONACO (Reuters) - World number two Novak Djokovic has dropped former U.S. and Australian Open finalist Todd Martin from his coaching team and will now work with his long-time trainer Marian Vajda only.

"The news is that I am not working with Todd Martin anymore," Djokovic told reporters before a training session in a sunbathed Monte Carlo country club where he is to start his claycourt campaign this week.

The Serbian added Martin, 39, to his coaching team last year before the U.S. Open but has since felt that working with two coaches has become too complicated.

Djokovic, who will face either Florent Serra or Stephane Robert of France in the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters, said the two coaches had had communications problems.

"You're always going to have problems like that when you work with two coaches," he said. "They did not understand each other very well.

"Todd is a fantastic person, who has so much experience and he shared everything with me," added Djokovic, who appeared to be suffering from a cold. "But it just did not work out in the end and we separated with no hard feelings and life goes on."

"I'm full time with Marian again and hopefully we can have a lot of success again."

Re: Djokovic drops Martin from coaching team

idiot... he is currently playing the best tennis of his career working with Todd Martin and now he's going to ditch him? Worst decision ever. Now he's totally screwed.

Re: Djokovic drops Martin from coaching team

Long term, probably a mistake. Will most likely be viewed as a positive since short term results are generally the most popular approach.

Re: Djokovic drops Martin from coaching team

Newsflash: Djokovic has a brain..



Also, on his serve:

“At the ATP Finals in London my shoulder was tired and the body automatically started to make adjustments because of that,” Djokovic said. “Then we tried a slightly different action and it all got very complicated. So now I am just going back to my original action.”

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo
