Djokovic hires Boris Becker as his new head coach

Quote:
Boris Becker will join Novak Djokovic's coaching team in the new year.

Becker will become Djokovic's new head coach, replacing Marian Vadja, who will remain part of the set-up.

The world number two, who will defend his Australian Open title next month, was defeated in the Wimbledon and US Open finals by Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal this year.

Perhaps impressed by Ivan Lendl's effect on Murray's game, Djokovic has recruited three-time Wimbledon champion Becker.

Becker has primarily worked as a pundit since he retired from tennis in 1999, and commentated on both of Murray's Grand Slam wins for Sky Sports and the BBC.

The German won six majors, including two Australian Opens and a US Open, but is best known for his Wimbledon win as a 17-year-old in 1985.

I repeat, this is about Novak, not Marko or Djordje

Re: BREAKING: Djokovic hires Boris Becker as his new head coach

I'm assuming he is hiring Becker for net game solely. Don't see any other reason why he would make this decision?

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Novak with Boris. Andy with Lendl. Roger has been training in Dubai with Edberg. Rafa is the only one who relies on Tio Toni alone - doesn't need these guys from the 80s helping him.

I already declared him the GOAT commentator in 2011:

U wot m8?


I didn't see this one coming. Good thing Novak decided to separate himself from Marian Vajda, this hooligan. Boris Becker is a great commentator, we'll be left with little no good commentators!

Boris has an ulterior motive. He wants to make sure that Novak won't surpass his grandslam tally. What better way to accomplish this then being his coach? This is the end of Novak.

You sure like to convince yourself. But you're lonely in your boat - and it's about to sink.
