Becker will replace Marian Vajda, who has been the Serb’s coach since his early days on tour. Djokovic revealed though that Vajda will continue to remain part of the coaching setup with Becker becoming head coach.
Becker and Djokovic will have to hit it off from the get go as the Serb gets ready to defend his crown in the first Grand Slam of the year at the Australian Open.
The German, who made history when he won Wimbledon as a 17-year-old in 1985, has primarily worked with television networks since his retirement as a pundit, while also occasionally writing columns in dailies. He has been a regular part of the Wimbledon coverage over the years with both Sky Sports and BBC.
Becker won six Grand Slams in his career – two Australian Opens, one US Open and three Wimbledons.
