After Missing Indian Wells, Boris Becker Won’t Be With Novak Djokovic In Miami Either

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?

TGIT Says:

Unplanned double hip surgery? How could both hips go suddenly and unplanned? This will be over before the season ends.

Giles Says:

TGIT. Remember the headlines I forecast on another thread?

MMT Says:

Let’s hope for Djokovic’s sake, this is the beginning of the end. I can’t think of a single thing the he has added to his game that’s been helpful since Becker came on board.

Bad Knee Rules Says:

I don’t think Boris is going anywhere. Novak had a mild case of “separation anxiety”, read more here:

Margot Says:

Perhaps they suddenly gave way under the weight of Boris’ ego?

Brando Says:

So bad jokes rules is a Djokovic fans I see: how typically unfunny of him.

nadalista Says:

RT @TheBorisBecker: “Thanks for all the best wishes ! I have hopefully a speedy recovery…can’t wait to get back on a #tennis court with @DjokerNole !”

Whatever they removed from his hips they should implat on his twitter account, hopefully that’ll block it!

It wasn’t meant to be funny, separation anxiety is a real thing. Novak was with Vajda since he was 17.
Why don’t you just stfu and stick to your sub BOTTOM LINES. I’m not one of those nice Novak fans that you bullied away from TX.

Brando Says:

^Oh hello! What do we have here?

As suspected a former poster who returns with a different moniker.

LMFAO: how absolutely pathetic to return with such a hideous user name, whilst possessing little spine to return with their former name.

Yet: I am sure that was equally ridiculous as the present name you sport.


Troll on Child. Your petty ways may gain some support from some on here, but for me- as with most- it’s just scroll down when seeing such rubbish!

It is interesting though:

1. You clearly are a poster who has returned with a new user name.

2. Yet you return with a blatantly hideous, disgusting, spite ridden user name.

Pretty much sums up you as an individual then!

Well done on that one!
