Novak Djokovic has split with coaches Radek Stepanek and Andre Agassi. The former World No. 1, a 12-time Grand Slam winner, is battling back from long injury lay-off and lost his opening match at the Miami Masters two weeks ago.

"After Miami, Novak Djokovic and his tennis coach Radek Stepanek decided to end their cooperation," read a statement. "The cooperation between Novak and Andre Agassi has also ended." Djokovic missed the final six months of 2017 due to an elbow injury. The Serbian, 30, underwent a surgery. He had been working with Agassi since May 2017, while Czech Stepanek joined the team in December.

"The private relationship with Stepanek was and will remain great, and Novak has enjoyed working with him and learning from him," the statement continued. "Novak remains focused and eager to come back stronger and more resilient from the long injury break that has affected his confidence and game.

"He is continuously and passionately looking for new and different ways to regain winning form." Djokovic is scheduled to compete at the Monte-Carlo Masters, which begins on April 15.
