Following his elbow injury, Novak Djokovic is set to return in January to open his campaign in Australia. Djokovic’s team confirmed in a press conference that Andre Agassi would return as the head coach for the 2018 season. The 12-time grand slam champion failed to get past the quarterfinals in any grand slam. Dennis Istomin stunned him in the second round of the Australian Open. Djokovic also had to retire in the quarters of the Wimbledon, against Tomas Berdych. He also had an unimpressive run in the French Open.
After severing ties with long time coach Marian Vajda and Boris Becker, Djokovic has looked to settle in with the American Andre Agassi. The duo will restart where they left off last season, after Djokovic returns from his injury woes.
Djokovic stated in a press conference that he has spent several days in Belgrade for some fitness training. The Serbian is hoping that he will recover in time to take part in the Australian open in January. It remains to be seen if Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray’s return to competitive tennis will be as impressive Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s. The Swiss and the Spaniard, who after similar injury issues, returned to share the grand slams his year.
