BREAKING NEWS: Djokovic confirms split with Becker


World number two Novak Djokovic has confirmed he will no longer be coached by Boris Becker after the two mutually agreed to end their partnership.

Becker, himself a six-time grand slam champion, was appointed as Djokovic's head coach in December 2013, to work alongside the long-serving Marian Vajda.

Under the tutelage of the German, Djokovic enjoyed the most successful period of his career, doubling the tally of six major wins that he held prior to his link-up with Becker.

Victory in this year's French Open saw the 29-year-old complete a career Grand Slam and hold all four of his sport's premier singles titles at once, but a dip in form followed and Djokovic was deposed by Andy Murray at the top of the ATP singles rankings last month.
