Tennis - Djokovic hires Becker as Head Coach

Novak Djokovic has appointed six-time Grand Slam winner, Boris Becker, as his head coach, with the German set to work alongside the world number-two’s current coach, Marian Vajda.

The 26-year old, who lost the world number one spot to Rafael Nadal in 2013, will start work with Becker before the Australian Open, which starts on 13 January.

The six-time Grand Slam winner will head to Melbourne looking to win his fourth straight Australian Open, knowing starting 2014 in winning style would be the perfect platform on which to launch his assault on the world number-one spot.

Despite reaching three Grand Slam finals last season, Djokovic was only able to come away from the year with the Australian Open to his name, unable to do anything to stop a rampant Nadal from surprising the tennis betting odds and reclaiming the world number one ranking.

Defending Australian Open champion, Djokovic, has been with Vajda since 2006, although there have been a series of coaches who have worked alongside Vajda during that period, and the Serbian star has admitted he is excited about the prospect of working with Becker.

"Boris brings a fresh approach and together with Vajda he will make a winning combination. He’s is a true legend, someone who has great tennis knowledge, and his experience will help me win new trophies, Grand Slams and other tournaments.”

"My goal for 2014 is to play my best tennis and to get in shape for the grand slams and Masters 1000. These tournaments have the most weight in our sport, and I want to prove my worth at them."

Becker, once a perennial favourite in the tennis betting odds, first shot to fame by winning Wimbledon as an unseeded 17-year-old in 1985. During the course of an illustrious 15-year professional career, Becker won 64 ATP Tour titles, including three Wimbledon singles crowns.
