Is Novak Djokovic the man to beat at this year's Australian Open? In an interview to AS, the eight-time Grand Slam winner Andre Agassi replied: 'Well, my hope is that Grigor Dimitrov has something to say.
For history if Novak is in his best shape he can dominate again. He loves playing here and he feels comfortable in the tournament so he is obviously the favorite. But on court there are always two players, you have to fight, show your abilities, get results in the matches.'
On Dimitrov's potential, Agassi added: 'He is a Ferrari, he has a very big talent: he is able to attack, defend and mix the two things. He has a lot of confidence in himself and it makes him great. Grigor is part of my family.
I could not be happier the way he is as a person and how we improved quickly together.' On splitting with Djokovic, Agassi concluded: 'It's difficult to get in the other person's mind. I was hoping to bring something, but you need two people and it took a process.'
