Andre Agassi has copped a bit of flak after his stint as Novak Djokovic’s coach came to an abrupt end last week. Former Serbia Davis Cup captain Radmilo Armenulic is quoted as saying by Tennisworldusa.org: “I was opposed to that co-operation since the first day because he didn’t do anything for Novak’.”
Sky Sports analyst Greg Rusedski says “it feels like we are in a transition period with the men’s game” following John Isner and Juan Martin del Potro’s recent success in Miami and Indian Wells respectively.
