Mike Dickson of the Daily Mail caught up with Boris Becker in London, and the former tennis great had some interesting things day, as he often does. Here are some highlights:
On remaining as coach of Novak Djokovic: “We are in the process but I can’t tell you anything more than that. I couldn’t tell you yes and I couldn’t tell you no.”
On Djokovic’s disappointing performance against Andy Murray in the ATP Finals championship match: “I couldn’t believe how badly he played on the Sunday given the circumstances. That was probably, under my guidance, the worst match he has played and two weeks on I still don’t know what happened.”
On the outlook for Djokovic in 2017: “I’m not saying he is going to win everything again but he is going to be a lot more focused on tennis next year than he was in the second half of this year, I’m convinced.”
On how long Murray will keep No. 1: “I think he is going to start to feel it in May. It’s one thing playing up with nothing to lose but it’s a whole new ball game when you’ve got something to lose, the consequences of being world No1. There are responsibilities and expectations so it becomes more strenuous. But I think he will be fine until the clay court swing.”
