    • I add to My post AT 6:11 PM…

      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.”

  2. Boris Becker ‏@TheBorisBecker 8h8 hours ago
    Love both guys !!! What a remarkable hand-shake between 2 champions and bad news for the rest…@DjokerNole @andy_murray @ATPWorldTour

  3. Fans are everywhere

    RT @carole_bouchard: The “Night with Novak” scheduled today has been sold out in a few hours, says the tournament. Will start at 7pm on Margaret Court Arena.

  4. Just reading, Novak will skip Dubai due to shoulder injury that apparently got worse during his Davis Cup match…he is scheduled to be back for IW where he is defending champion…

  5. LOL.

    “Not one to simply have her phone taken away after such dedicated filming for nearly a quarter of an hour, Jelena sternly gave her video subject a piece of her mind (in Serbian).

    “How are you behaving yourself? For heaven’s sake,” she says. “‘Thank you, love. Thank you.’ Isn’t that what you should be saying?”

    “I just wanted to film,” Djokovic says, before trailing off. “I don’t know why you wanted…”

    In the 12-plus–minute clip, Jelena filmed her husband’s tennis practice and then balked at his desire to take her smartphone and speak directly to fans.

    “No, I like to take the camera, it’s nice,” Djokovic says. “It makes me feel more into it, more I guess, friendly.”

    Come for the awkwardness. Stay for Jelena’s shocked realization near the end that the live video was still running.

    Thus Jelena put Novak, the champion of 12 Grand Slams, firmly in his place. Looks like the world No. 2 will think twice before swiping her cellphone again.”

  6. Qualifiers in Acapulco:
    Fritz, Kravchuk, Donaldson, Chung, Tiafoe, Albot, Nishioka, Thompson, Sela, Young, Dolgopolov, Basilashvili, R. Harrison..

    Main Draw is already stacked. Everyone is going to Acapulco!

      • By “everyone” going to Acapulco I meant WTA will be there too. The ATP competition/draws in both Acapulco and Dubai will be great.

        But I just looked at the WTA list and the highest ranked players going to Acapulco are Pavlyuchenkova, Puig, Mladenovic, Bouchard, Niculescu….it’s a 280. Anyone who went deep in Doha and Dubai this week has to be exhausted.

        Very happy Nole got into Acapulco.
        I see that Sascha Z is no longer going; but Mischa still is.

  7. It great to hear Nole will go to Acapulco!What a strong field it would be!!…Can’t wait to see all the excitement down there next week….Bring it on guys!!!

  8. Carole Bouchard ‏20 minutes ago: “Breaking : Djokovic doubtful for Miami. Went back to Monaco to consult doctor for right elbow injury that hampered him through Indian Wells.”

  9. Oh dear, if that’s true then Djoko will lose another 1000 points. No wonder he looked out of sorts at IW, was shaking his right arm at times, I thought it’s his wrist but it ended up being his elbow. Poor soul.

  10. Yes but the number on the list that he has to face only depends on the draw.

    Fed would be favourite over any of them other than Rafa except for Nole and he’s an unknown now struggling for almost a year and now with an arm injury.

    Fed is a 25:1 underdog to win the French (much of that due to the real possibility that he won’t even enter the tournament to have his best chances at Wimbledon. His odds will only improve. Excellent value bet.

  12. Boris Becker knows how top players can lose their ability to stay mentally strong.

    Boris Becker was on site for Sky in Monte Carlo and said of the out-of-sorts Djokovic, whom he coached until December: “I had a chat with his team last night and what’s in the locker room will stay in the locker room. But I think he’s playing better the past couple of months. I don’t think you can lose your forehand or backhand overnight. It’s mental.

    “He can rearrange [the direction of] his ship, he is 29, but he has to do it soon. He’s an emotional guy. In the past, it was in his favour. Now his emotions get hold of him and it makes him play worse. He gets down on himself, the shoulders go down and the opponent is watching.”
