Sports, International (Rome), May 22:- Novak Djokovic has announced that Andre Agassi will coach him at the French Open, which starts next Sunday.
Speaking after his loss to Alexander Zverev in the Italian Open final on Sunday, Djokovic says, “Andre is someone who I have tremendous respect for. … He’s someone who can contribute to my life on and off the court.”
