Novak Djokovic names Andre Agassi as new coach after losing Italian Open final

12-time Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic revealed that Andre Agassi will be his new coach after losing to Alexander Zverev in the final of the Italian Open on Sunday.

 

The World’s number two seed part ways with coaching staff earlier on in May prior to the start of the Italian Open.

Djokovic was shocked by 20-year-old German youngster 6-4 6-3 to win in Rome while in the women's final, Ukraine's Elina Svitolina edged Romanian international Simona Halep 4-6 7-5 6-1 to win.

Meanwhile, the former world number one and American sensational Agassi will be with Djokovic in Paris for the Roland Garros that is scheduled to kick off on 28 May.

"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," said Djokovic about the eight-time Grand Slam winner who retired in 2006.

"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 added.
