Is Vajda still Djokovic's coach?

Is Vajda still Djokovic's coach?

Marian Vajda (Slovak pronunciation: ['marija:m'vajda]; born March 24, 1965) is a former player and professional tennis instructor from Slovakia. He is Novak Djokovic's current head coach and has been his coach for virtually his entire professional career, earning 84 championships with him (out of the 85 won by Djokovic).

He has been praised for his work with Djokovic, who he has coached since the age of 17, and has been nominated for Coach of the Year awards on three occasions (2009, 2011, 2012).

Vajda turned professional in 1987 and had success early on, winning two ATP titles in Germany in 1990 and 1991. However, he was banned for life by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) in 1992 after testing positive for cocaine at a tournament in Brussels. The suspension ended in 1996, with Vajda returning to the tour full time.

He has been credited with turning around Djokovic's game during their partnership, helping him develop into one of the best players in the world. As well as being ranked #1 for over 100 weeks, Djokovic has also been named the ATP Player of the Year three times (2010, 2011, 2012).

Vajda has said that he will retire when he feels like it is time to quit coaching, but he is currently contracted to Novak Djokovic until the end of the 2017 season.

Who was Novak Djokovic’s coach in Monte Carlo?

Djokovic, a Monte Carlo resident, was trained by former Slovak tennis player Marian Vajda from 2006 until December 2013, when Boris Becker took over as head coach. Djokovic describes himself as a language enthusiast, speaking Serbian, English, French, German, and Italian. He also plays golf, skateboards, and watches movies.

Djokovic has won seven Grand Slam singles titles so far in his career. His latest victory came at the Australian Open 2018 where he defeated Roger Federer in four matches to claim his second Australian Open title.

He is the only male player to have won the Australian Open without dropping a single game. Djokovic is also the only man to have achieved this feat twice. The first time was in 2008 when he beat Rafael Nadal and Murray Smith in the final. The last time was in 2018 when he beat Federer in the final again. In total, Djokovic has won 14 Masters 1000 tournaments across all the Grand Slam events. He is the only person other than Rod Laver (who won 16 times) to have reached the top of the world rankings without losing a match.

Djokovic's success on the court has helped him become one of the most popular athletes in Serbia. He is loved by Serbs for his polite behavior and excellent skills on the tennis court. However, his popularity has fallen since 2011 when he began to gain weight.

Who is the most successful tennis coach?

Vajda Vajda, together with Toni Nadal (who won 20 Grand Slam championships with his nephew Rafael Nadal) and Novak Djokovic, is the most successful coach in tennis history in terms of Grand Slam titles (who won 20 Grand Slam trophies with Novak Djokovic).

They are all from Spain. If we include junior events (U12 - U16), then the record is held by Michael Joyce with 22 Grand Slam victories.

Joyce was an Australian coach who worked with Andy Murray, Bernard Tomic, and other players. He died at age 44 in a car accident in 2009.

The most successful male tennis coach is probably Boris Becker. He is one of the best tennis players of all time, winning three Olympic gold medals and two World Championships during his career. He had more than 100 singles wins as well as 50 doubles wins.

He started coaching in 1986 and until 2003, he managed to guide his students to victory after victory. In 2004, he stopped coaching because of personal issues. However, he returned to the game in 2008 and continued working with his students until his death in 2015 at the young age of 43.

Becker's wife, Emanuela Cinquini, has also been involved in some of his achievements as a coach. They have two children together: Daniel, a professional tennis player, and Laura, a volleyball player.

Who is Novak Djokovic’s coach at Wimbledon 2019?

On June 30, 2019, Novak Djokovic signed former World No. 2 Goran Ivanisevic to his coaching team. He recruited Ivanisevic as his second coach, joining Vajda, before of the 2019 Wimbledon Championships.

Ivanisevic was one of tennis' most successful coaches during the 1990s, winning four Grand Slam titles in a row from 1995 to 1999 with Steffi Graf, but he fell out of the public eye after that. He returned in 2009 and continued to work with Djokovic until his death in November 2015.

Djokovic said in a statement that hiring Ivanisevic is "a dream come true" for him and that he is looking forward to working with him again. "Goran was one of my idols as a child," he added. "To have him as part of my coaching team is very exciting for me."

Ivanisevic will be based in London but will travel with the team to major tournaments around the world. The number two spot on the coaching staff will be filled by Vajda, who has been Djokovic's coach for the last three years.

Vajda helped Djokovic regain his top ranking after losing it for three years following knee surgery. Before that, he had only coached one other player: Andre Agassi.
