Why Annabel Croft is most excited about this news.
Sky Sports savant Annabel Croft is a fanatic of seeing the get-together between tennis hotshot Novak Djokovic and mentor Marian Vajda. The 12-time Grand Slam champion as of late split with mentors Andre Agassi and Radek Stepanek. It was affirmed a couple of days prior that Djokovic will be joined by Vajda at the up and coming Monte Carlo Masters – April 15-22.
It is misty right now will the match expand their cooperation past the Monte Carlo Masters. Djokovic made an entire update in his group before he included Agassi and Stepanek – which included part with Vajda.
The 30-year-old’s tryout with Agassi and Stepanek went contrary to expectations as the Serb never won any Grand Slam Titles while under the mentorship of both Agassi and Stepanek. Agassi went ahead of the board in May and Stepanek in December, individually.
Djokovic, who experienced a minor elbow surgery after the Australian Open, lost his openers at the Masters 1000 occasions in Indian Wells and Miami.
Croft had this to say “I think Novak needed to go out and explore other avenues and see what might work but it feels like a really good decision, “This guy got him to world No. 1, got him to win Grand Slam titles and did a brilliant job, and it’s now almost a case of going back to basics. He clearly was struggling with all the trials he’s done with the other coaches.”
Croft is clearly rooting for this team and we all see why. Djokovic and Vajda best suit each other, not because the likes of Agassi and Stepanek are not good enough, but simply because everyone has their best partner in the sports world and in the case of Djokovic, we could second Croft and agree that Vajda is his life partner in the tennis world.
We hope this goes beyond the Monte Carlo Masters and hopefully lasts a lifetime. We are happy for both Djokovic and his old (now new) coach; hopefully, they both bring to the courts new and exciting memories. Djokovic has not yet made it clear if he will be under the coaching of Vajda but it is likely that they continue with this working relationship especially if he does well in the Monte Carlo Masters.
