Djokovic announces a major breakup: “Thank you for everything. I love you”


It has been almost a month since the last match played by Novak Djokovic. It was in the third round of Indian Wells, when he surprisingly lost against the Italian Luca Nardi. No doubt, a blow that led him to decide to withdraw from the Miami Open and take a few weeks off to reflect.

Well, it seems that this period of reflection will bring significant changes for the future. And this Wednesday announced that he was severing his professional relationship with his former coach, Goran Ivanisevic.

I clearly remember the moment when I invited Goran to be part of my team. It was 2018, and Marian and I were looking to innovate and bring magic to our duo. In fact, we’ve brought not only service, but also lots of laughs, fun, year-end #1 rankings, record achievements and 12 more Grand Slams (and a few finals) to tally since then. Did I mention a little drama too?” the world number 1 wrote on her Instagram account.

“Goran and I decided to stop working together a few days ago. Our chemistry on the court had its ups and downs, but our friendship was always rock solid.. In fact, I’m proud to say (I’m not sure I am) that apart from winning tournaments together, we also had a parallel battle in Parcheesi… for many years. And that tournament never ends for us. Šefinjo, thanks for everything friend I love you“end of message.

This is the last change the Serbian has made in recent months. During the ATP Finals made his farewell official to Edo and Elena, his managers for thirteen years.

He released a heartfelt message to the public. “My appreciation and love for you both goes beyond any professional relationship personally.. What you have done for me and my family privately and the amount of care and empathy you have shown all these years, especially to my wife and children, is something very special to me and will never -I will never forget this. Together we made tennis history and reached incredible heights in this sport. Your contribution to success is important and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. “You will remain in my heart as dear friends and part of my family,” Djokovic shared.

“Together we go through ups and downs, joys and sufferings, stress and relief but above all there are moments that only we understand and this, for us, are the most beautiful because they are uniquely us. You opened the door of your life to ours and we become a part of it, making it ours and truly feeling like a family: this is the greatest gift you have given us,” he continued.

The managers’ letter to Djokovic concluded by pointing out that “Jelena, Tara, Stefan and you will always have a special place in our hearts“.
