Croatian tennis coach Goran Ivanisevic has been coaching the great Novak Djokovic for some time now and many hold him in high regard for his contribution to Djokovic’s longevity. At a recent press conference, Ivanisevic opened up about his relationship with the Serbian and how tough it is to handle him during their sessions.
Speaking of his nature, Ivanisevic revealed at the recent press conference how Djokovic always takes out his frustration and anger on him and his other coaching staff during the match. When asked about if he ever yelled back at Nole, the Croatian spoke in awe of the star stating that he doesn’t have the right or finds himself undeserved to shout back at Djokovic.
"But who am I to be angry with him? He is the best player in the history of tennis. I can only be angry with him when he yells at us for no reason. When he loses a match, he always gives his best and makes an effort,"
said Ivanisevic speaking in a press conference in Turin.
It’s no secret that Ivanisevic has been the best choice for Djokovic while he approaches the end of his career. Ivanisevic has transformed him into a fine athlete as results show Nole dominating despite being in the latter half of his 30s.
