Novak Djokovic will have Andre Agassi again on his team when 2018 begins, according to a statement received by Reuters.
“We can confirm that Agassi remains the head coach while Italian Marco Panichi will take over as the fitness coach and Argentine Ulises Badio is the new physio,” a statement from Djokovic’s camp read.
“The only remaining issue is appointing a second coach and that will complete the staff accompanying Djokovic in 2018.”
After letting go of his team last spring, Djokovic made the surprise hire of Agassi just before the French Open.
But due to an elbow injury which forced Djokovic to end the season in July, the partnership was shortlived.
Djokovic, whose wife recently gave birth to a second child, is now on trying to recover for the start of the new season. The Serb, though, will be out of the top 10 when the new year begins, and likely be seeded around 15 for the Australian Open.
But will Agassi make the long trip to Australia if Djokovic is in fact healthy?

Pleased to hear direct from Nole and his camp – just a pity Nole’s taste in clothing has gone retro….really doesn’t suit him. However, it’s not the clothes one should look at, its the person…and I had a moment of pleasure reading his plans re. his reurn….and hope Andy is hot on his heels. Hoping everyone will welcome the return of a renewal of competitiveness in 2018, irrespective of whom their favourite may be.
