Novak Djokovic has announced that he has parted ways with Boris Becker after three years. Djokovic began working with Becker in December of 2013, and won six major titles during his time with Becker. You can read Djokovic’s official statement below:

Djokovic will apparently continue working with Marian Vajda as there was no mention of his longtime coach in his statement.

Our Take:

Djokovic clearly gained a lot from adding Becker to his team, and he reached his most dominant and productive levels with Becker in his box. But make no mistake about it: Djokovic knows how to win with or without Becker. Right now Djokovic’s focus is on creating mental balance and a positive mindset in his camp. It’s what the 12-time Grand Slam champion believes will help him most going forward.

Djokovic deserves the chance to shape his team the way he wants it, and he might even benefit from the new perspective that comes without Becker in the box. Maybe it will even open the door for another voice to come in. Not to take anything away from Becker, who clearly did his job and did it well, but Djokovic should be just fine without him. The talent is there, the experience is there, and if Djokovic reclaims his passion and competitive fire, more major titles should be coming.
