Radek Štěpánek officially named trainer to Novak Djokovic

Czech tennis player Radek Štěpánek has been officially named the trainer of former world number one singles player Novak Djokovic.

The announcement was made within three weeks of the two times Czech Davis Cup winner announcing his retirement from the game. The two players, both living in Monoco, are already friends.

Štěpánek said that the agreement of Andre Agassi, who is also training the Serb player, was a key to the agreement that he take up the role. Sidelined by injury, Djokovic intends to start playing again from December 28.
