Steffi Graf convinced Andre Agassi to help Novak Djokovic!

Andre Agassi recently mentioned that his wife Steffi Graf convinced him to join Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros this year.


Novak Djokovic is the defending champion in Paris and with his recent split with his team, he was looking for a coach.

Agassi, a former French Open champion himself said that he is working with the Serb in Paris that too for a few rounds and not on a permanent basis.

“Novak called me about three weeks ago, and I said no at the start,” Agassi said at a French TV show. “But my wife (Steffi Graf) said ‘you should go, you will love it’. We had organised a family trip during Roland Garros anyway, which was planned for a long time.

“So I hope to see one or two of Novak’s matches and try to bring to him what I can, because even a small remark can do a lot. What I know, with certainty, is that he can be even better than yesterday. I think he can only improve, because he understands how strong he is.”

Agassi and Djokovic practiced for the first time at Roland Garros recently , but the American insisted that he was not in the market for a full-time job.

“The only agreement we have is for Paris, and given our discussions, it’s not a full-time job for me,” he added.
