Djokovic to keep Agassi as head coach

BELGRADE (Reuters) – Novak Djokovic will keep Andre Agassi as his head coach when he returns to action after recovering from an elbow injury which forced him to cut short his season in July, Serbia’s former world number one said on Tuesday.

“We can confirm that Agassi remains the head coach while Italian Marco Panichi will take over as the fitness coach and Argentine Ulises Badio is the new physio,” Djokovic’s press office said in a statement.

“The only remaining issue is appointing a second coach and that will complete the staff accompanying Djokovic in 2018.”

Djokovic, who has won 12 grand slam titles but suffered a year-long dip in form before the injury forced him to retire against Czech Tomas Berdych in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, is expected to return at the Australian Open in January.
