I know many of you Novak Djokovic fans and supporters were hoping for this announcement, well, here it is.
Djokovic officially gave word in Monte Carlo that he will not be using the coaching services of Todd Martin any longer.
“Todd is a fantastic person,” Djokovic told FoxNews. “He has so much experience and was willing to share everything with me. There are no hard feelings but we just decided it was not working. It was probably a question of understanding what kind of person I am.”
The main issue of Djokovic’s problems of late has been his serve, and that’s what he now aims to correct.
“At the ATP Finals in London my shoulder was tired and the body automatically started to make adjustments because of that,” Djokovic said. “Then we tried a slightly different action and it all got very complicated. So now I am just going back to my original action.”
Djokovic and Martin, a two-time Slam finalist, began working with each other last August. Marian Vajda will remain his coach.
Djokovic is the top seed at the Monte Carlo Tennis Masters. After a bye, on Wednesday he’ll play the winner of Florent Serra and Stephane Robert.
Already today Tomas Berdych and David Nalbandian were easy winners.
