“Novak got upset with me”: Goran Ivanisevic recalls incident where Novak Djokovic was not pleased with his in-match advise

Ex-coach of the world number one Novak Djokovic, Goran Ivanisevic, has revealed that he could not understand why the legendary tennis player yelled sometimes on the court. The 36-year-old is often regarded as the greatest player in the history of men’s tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam titles.
Djokovic recently parted ways with Ivanisevic after having him as his coach for six years. The former Wimbledon winner was recently quoted in a report where he recalled one incident when the reigning world number one got mad at him for explaining something that was related to clouds and how it was not helping him in his serve.
"That happened again and again. Then he yelled at me again and everyone saw it. Sometimes I could understand him well in the stadium, but sometimes not,” he said. “Maybe he wanted to know something about the service - and then I told him something about the clouds that were just over the arena. Then Novak got upset with me. But at least it was related to me. And after five minutes it shut down again. He was able to let everything out and then he was free again. Sometimes in tennis you need a quick shock to hit a reset button in your head. I think the mental component is the most important factor in this sport.”
