However, it would go some to prevent one of the top five taking the remaining three Grand Slam trophies this year - Nadal remains odds-on favourite for the French, while Murray is fancied at SW19 and the U.S., though Djokovic could well be his nearest challenger for both.

Fellow 30-and-over rivals Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray chimed in with birthday wishes. Now entering the French Open Djokovic has announced he'll be working with tennis legend and fellow career Grand Slam victor Andre Agassi as coach.

Djokovic has been without a coach since before the start of the Madrid Masters after he revealed that he will be parting ways with his entire coaching team, including his longtime coach Marian Vajda. I grew up in Germany, went to a German school, had German friends. I am enjoying every conversation that I have with him.

"He's a person that can contribute to my life on and off the court a lot", he said. "I'm very excited to see what is ahead of us".

Boris Becker left the Djokovic entourage last December after three successful years together.

With some 18 grand slam singles titles, Navratilova is one of the most experienced tennis players of her generation and had a spell working with Agnieszka Radwanska towards the end of the 2014 season.

He said he wanted to rediscover the "spark" after a worrying loss of form since completing the career grand slam in Paris previous year where he beat Andy Murray in the final.

He lost in the third round at Wimbledon, his earliest defeat in a Grand Slam in seven years, lost in the first round at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, reached the final of the U.S. Open, and lost early again at the Australian Open.

Less than 24 hours later, Djokovic suffered another disappointing loss in what has been a surprisingly poor 2017 campaign for the world No. 2.

While Agassi has not coached a top player before, Djokovic said his record as a player and spokesman of the game was enough to convince him.

He added: "He s someone that has been so successful in this sport, and he s a legend of our sport". "He's made a mark in this sport forever". In 1933 tennis player and inventor René Lacoste, nicknamed the Crocodile for the tenacity he displayed on the court, revolutionized the world of sportswear by creating the LACOSTE L.12.12 Polo shirt. "That's why he was so interesting".

"He's been definitely following up closely all the matches, the big matches, especially on the TV", Djokovic said.
