Goran Ivanisevic shed light on which players he would like to work with after parting ways with Novak Djokovic. The former world No. 2 began working with Nole in 2018, and since then, they secured 12 Grand Slam titles. However, following Djokovic's surprising defeat in the round of 32 at Indian Wells, the Serbian decided to end their professional relationship.
Ivanisevic previously worked with Marin Cilic, Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic, and Fabrice Santoro, all of whom he coached when they were already established as top-level players on the tour. But now, the Croatian expressed his desire to work with a young tennis player in the future, although he plans to take a few months off first.
"I'm resting, I'll go with my son to the European Football Championship, then Umag, then the summer... I'm going back to the Tour for sure, but I'll see with whom. It will probably be a young tennis player," Ivanisevic said.
On the other hand, Djokovic still does not have an official coach but has been working under the guidance of former doubles world No. 1 Nenad Zminjic, who accompanied him at the Monte-Carlo Masters. Regarding this, Ivanisevic voiced his support for maintaining their association.
"Ziki and I are great friends; we talk to each other every day. He doesn't need a better man than him. They know each other very well; the culture is the same. Ziki was his selector; he knows his soul, and he needs a man who knows him well. I'm glad they're doing well; I'll be the one cheering them on. I repeat, we will be friends forever," Ivanisevic said.
