World No.2 Novak Djokovic recently shocked the tennis fraternity by announcing that he and his team have ended their partnership on mutual grounds.


The Serb however hinted that he will follow the trend of hiring a highly successful former player as his new coach, but says he will take his time to make the right decision.

“It’s going to be someone that has been through similar experiences like I have,” Djokovic mentioned. “Not too many people in the past of tennis have managed to get to that stage and play at that level, so I’ll see. I’m thinking slowly and thoroughly about it. I don’t want to take things with a rush.”

With Andy Murray rehiring Ivan Lendl and Rafael Nadal having Carlos Moya his in entourage, Novak Djokovic would be looking for someone with the same wavelength.

With barely two weeks until the defence of his French Open begins, Djokovichas been joined on tour by his brother Marco and his spiritual guru Pepe Imaz. “I also know that I’ll not stay by myself without a tennis coach for too long,” added the multiple Grand Slam champion. “I’m sure difficult paths lead to beautiful destinations, so I’m sticking with that.”

Djokovic further admitted that he doesn’t know how long it will take him to find top form once more. “In the last six months I haven’t had too many great results. That’s why, you know, I’ve felt like I needed some changes and I needed to approach things maybe a little bit differently, which is completely fine.”

“How long maybe this process is going to last before I get to the winning terms again? I don’t know, I’m just hoping I will get there again.”
