Novak Djokovic's next coach: Nenad Zimonjic to be appointed as Boris Becker's replacement?

Novak Djokovic's next coach: Nenad Zimonjic to be appointed as Boris Becker's replacement?

Johannesburg: Ever since Novak Djokovic parted ways with Boris Becker recently, one question which is in the minds of the tennis fans is - who will be the Russian's successor?

According to a report published in a Serbian publication, the World No. 2 player could sign up his Davis Cup teammate Nenad Zimonjic as a new coach. The 40-year-old is not only still an active doubles player on the ATP, but he is currently ranked No. 61 and also teamed with Djokovic in doubles at the Rio Olympics earlier this year.

Last week, Djoker ended his three-year-old partnership with Becker. Djokovic has won six Grand Slams since appointing Becker in December 2013, and held all four major titles at the same when he defeated Murray in the French Open final in June.

"After three very successful years, Boris Becker and I have jointly decided to end our cooperation. The goals we set when we started working together have been completely fulfilled, and I want to thank him for the cooperation, teamwork, dedication and commitment," Djoker said in a Facebook post.

Without announcing the name of the German's successor, Nole said that he was looking forward to bouncing back in the next year.

"On the other hand, my professional plans are now directed primarily to maintain a good level of play, and also to make a good schedule and new goals for the next season. In this regard I will make all future decisions," he said.

Djokovic recently made a change to his coaching team, where he roped in Spanish spiritual guru Pepe Imaz ahead of the Paris Masters and World Tour Finals in London.

After winning his maiden French Open title earlier this year, Djokovic's form dipped drastically in the second half of 2016, where he was knocked out in the third round at Wimbledon, lost his opening match at the Olympics and was beaten in the US Open final.
