Novak Djokovic Splits with Coach Goran Ivanisevic After 12 Grand Slam Titles

Novak Djokovic, the world’s top-ranked tennis player, has parted ways with his long-time coach Goran Ivanisevic. The split, announced by Djokovic on Instagram, marks the end of a successful partnership that spanned five years and yielded 12 Grand Slam titles for the Serbian star.

Djokovic and Ivanisevic began working together in 2018, and their collaboration proved to be a transformative force in the player’s career. Under Ivanisevic’s guidance, Djokovic regained his dominance on the court, winning three Wimbledon titles, three Australian Open titles, two French Open titles, and four US Open titles.

However, the past few months have been challenging for Djokovic. He has yet to win a title in 2024, losing in the semifinals of the Australian Open and the third round of Indian Wells. The disappointing results have led to speculation about the future of his partnership with Ivanisevic.

In his Instagram post, Djokovic acknowledged the ups and downs in their on-court chemistry but emphasized that their friendship remained strong. He thanked Ivanisevic for his contributions and wished him well in his future endeavors.

Ivanisevic, a former Wimbledon champion, played a pivotal role in Djokovic’s resurgence. His aggressive approach and unwavering belief in his player’s abilities helped Djokovic overcome adversity and reclaim his status as the world’s best.

The split between Djokovic and Ivanisevic comes as the tennis world prepares for the clay-court season. Djokovic, who has won the French Open twice, will be eager to regain his form and add to his Grand Slam tally.
