For the first time since his split with Novak Djokovic, Andre Agassi spoke about ending his partnership with the Serbian player. Interviewed by Marca, the former American player said: 'Nothing happened in particular. The goal was to help him with his return of serve.
I love his tennis and I want him to come back as soon as possible because tennis needs him. But he had the problem with his elbow and it was difficult to improve and help him with that physical circumstance. Everything was very slow.
He has one way of understanding tennis and I have another and we were quite happy with that. When I saw that I was not helping him with what he was saying, there was no point in continuing. I was not what Djokovic needed. But I did not charge and I did it because I wanted to.
It was not a job. We continue to respect each other.' Agassi is confident about Djokovic's future: 'I feel that he can be the same again. It is in his hands. He wants to win again.' ALSO READ: Novak Djokovic reveals shocking news after French Open loss
