After splitting with coaches Andre Agassi and Radek Stepanek in recent months, former Novak Djokovic has been given a potential boost, the Daily Express report.
Gebhard Gritsch, a former consultant and fitness coach of Djokovic, has admitted he would be open to returning to the Serbian’s camp, if he was asked by the 12-time Grand Slam champion.
Gritsch and Djokovic spent eight years together between 2009-2017, with Djokovic stating Gritsch’s help was pivotal during his dominance at the highest level.
Djokovic is currently being mentored by former coach Marian Vajda ahead of the Monte Carlo Masters, with the pair enjoying all of Djokovic’s 12 Grand Slams coming during their long-term partnership.
Talking to the media, former fitness coach Gritsch admitted he would consider returning to help his good friend Djokovic.
Novak is a friend of mine, he can count on my help always, so if he calls me, I will consider returning to the team.
Djokovic, who reportedly has no long-term deal in place with Vajda at this moment in time, is looking to end a three-match losing streak heading into the clay-court season.
