Viktor Troicki announces Boris Pashanski as his new coach

Serbian tennis player Viktor Troicki has announced fellow compatriot Boris Pashanski as his new coach.

Pashanski, 35, is just four years older of 31-year-old Troicki. 

Troicki revealed to Sport Klub his intention was to hire a younger coach who could give him the "new energy."

The Serb also added he wanted to hire a former professional tennis player. 

The two have always had a great relationship as they are not strangers to each other on the practice courts.

Pashanski, who retired from tennis in 2014, reached a career-high ranking of No. 55 in the world in 2006.

Pashanski's career-best result at the Grand Slam level was the 2006 Australian Open second-round.

Troicki will be hoping to have a positive 2018 campaign after an inconsistent 2017 campaign.

Troicki, a former world No. 12, is currently ranked at No. 55 after starting the year at No. 29.

Troicki and Pashanski will spend some more time in Serbia before they flow to Monaco to prepare for the next season.
