Boris Becker was scheduled to re-join Novak Djokovic in Miami this week, but the Serb announced today in that his new coach will not be making the trip to South Florida so he can get unplanned surgery on both hips.
“He’s unable to travel,” Djokovic said of Becker. “He has surgery of his both hips today and tomorrow, so he couldn’t come.
“He was supposed to come here. Basically in the finals of Indian Wells he called us and said that he had an emergency.
“Of course, in these situations you can’t do much about it. If they have to operate on his hips, he cannot move, unfortunately.
“It’s an issue he’s been carrying for many years. But if he is able, he’s going to be in Monte Carlo. Everything stays the same, unless his health doesn’t allow him.”
In a surprise announce Djokovic hired Becker in December, but the results have been mixed since. Djokovic didn’t win a title until last Sunday at Indian Wells where Marian Vajda was there instead of Becker.
With Becker likely immobile now for some time, is this the beginning of the end for this duo?
