Novak Djokovic announced Radek Stepanek is his new coach through a very funny LIVE video on Instagram. The 12-time Grand Slam champion called the former Czech tennis player through the famous social network and pretended Stepanek was still in activity.
The 39-year-old asked Djokovic which are his plans for next season. Novak replied: 'You are kind one of my rivals so I can't reveal you any secret...' Stepanek explains he retired because of his back issues and he asks: 'Have you something for me or not?' 'I am actually looking for another coach...
I don't know what you have in mind but if you have nothing to do we can give a shot!', Djokovic replied. And Stepanek agrees: 'I have been resting quite a lot in the last few weeks and we can give a shot!' 'This is fantastic!' Novak replies.
He opens the door and finds Stepanek there: 'We are excited for the new season and that was the way we wanted to break up you', Djokovic told his fans. He will start his new season in Doha. Stepanek will help him in off-time competition and so during practice sessions in Monte Carlo, and in all the ATP Tour events.
Andre Agassi will follow Djokovic mainly in the Grand Slams.
