Nenad Zimonjic, Novak Djokovic's temporary coach, commented on his role following Djokovic's split with his former coach Goran Ivanisevic in March. Zimonjic was part of the team led by the Croatian and has known Djokovic for several years, but he has yet to decide whether he will continue in the role.
In just 18 months, Djokovic has already changed agents, physiotherapists, and fitness coaches, in addition to notably splitting with his coach of the last five years, with whom he won 10 Grand Slam titles.

Zimonjic reflects on partnership with Djokovic

The former Grand Slam doubles champion accompanied Djokovic during his participation in the Monte-Carlo Masters: "Novak asked me, 'Can you be there for the training sessions, for the matches?' Because I know him very well," he said during an appearance on the Majstorija TV show.

The former doubles world No. 1 hinted at the possibility of them continuing to work together in the future: "On the other hand, he is someone who has tremendous respect for me and knows how much I know. I'm glad that I was able to help, and it was a great experience for me."
“I am considering that as well, whether I should or shouldn’t have the coach,” he recently told The Guardian. “I had a really good time with Nenad Zimonjic as my coach the last three weeks so we’re talking about continuing and seeing. Let’s see, I’m going to make the decision in the next period.”
