The world No. 2 is among several top players who have two or more coaches. Pepe Imaz, a former player and academy owner, was also recently in the Serb’s box at tournaments. Djokovic, who stressed the importance of having a strong team, varies between having one or both coaches with him at events.
“I like to have at least one coach that can give me that perspective, somebody I can discuss with about my game and things that I need to work on,” he said. “Many times you cannot really see things technically or tactically concerning your game, so that’s somebody that’s obviously tracking that and following you and giving you their input.
“There are periods where you need that voice in your ear more than some other moments, when you need things simple and quiet.”
