There s little doubt that 20-year-old Zverev is the real deal.
Today Novak Djokovic becomes the LACOSTE style ambassador, not only on, but also off the tennis court.
World No.2 Djokovic, who turned 30 Monday, said in Rome his arrangement with the former world No. 1 was an informal one for now without a long-term commitment. We are both excited to work together and see where it takes us. "He will not stay the whole tournament".
Although fans will have to wait until later this month to get their hands on Djokovic's first line with Lacoste - which is expected to include polo shirts and shorts - several of the items worn and used on-court by the 12-time singles Grand Slam victor can be purchased now.
The Serb, beaten 6-4 6-3 by Zverev in the Rome sunshine, said he would join up with eight-times grand slam champion Agassi as he prepares to defend his Roland Garros crown. "He has been through everything that I'm going through".
Novak Djokovic confirmed on Sunday that he has hired American tennis legend Andre Agassi as his new coach for the French Open that starts next week. On the court he understands the game amazingly well.
Now entering the French Open Djokovic has announced he'll be working with tennis legend and fellow career Grand Slam victor Andre Agassi as coach. I am enjoying every conversation that I have with him. McEnroe was part of Milos Raonic's coaching team during the summer of 2016 when the Canadian went on to reach his first grand slam final at Wimbledon, where he lost in straight sets to Murray, before going their separate ways ahead of the US Open.
He said he wanted to rediscover the "spark" after a worrying loss of form since completing the career grand slam in Paris a year ago where he beat Andy Murray in the final.
"He was a revolutionary player because he had this charisma, he had this approach to tennis and to life that was quite different from others". After a run of some 11 tournament wins, the duo parted company in December 2015.
"I had to be aggressive from the first point on and to the last".
