Coaching Rumors: Djokovic With Stepanek, Vallverdu Back With Murray?
Rumors have been swirling on the coaching already.
Novak Djokovic is said to be adding the recently retired Radek Stepanek to his coaching team next year, that according to Agassi’s old coach Darren Cahill. Over the weekend while commentating on ESPN, Cahill said he recently had dinner with Agassi and talked about Stepanek’s role which would be to primarily handle Djokovic’s non-Slam weeks.
Though nothing official, it sounds like this one could happen.
Cahill also hinted that Andy Murray might be looking at getting Dani Vallverdu back on his team. Murray just parted with Ivan Lendl while Vallverdu, who coached Murray years ago, just helped his current charge Grigor Dimitrov to his best season ever.
“I’m not worried,” Dimitrov said of the chance Murray comes for Dani. “If you ask me if he’s going to take Dani, no. Obviously I can wish him only the best.”
Murray is presently with Jamie Delgado.
Stan Wawrinka and Magnus Norman are no more, and of course Uncle Toni has coached his last match with Rafael Nadal.
