‘Not the same’: Concerns for Novak Djokovic after shock split

Tennis pundit Marc Rosset has questioned whether Novak Djokovic will be able to return to his best following his shock split with long-time coach Marian Vajda.

Djokovic shocked the tennis world last month when he announced he was parting ways with Vajda after 15 years.


A statement on Djokovic’s website said that he and Vajda “agreed to end their partnership” after last year’s season-ending ATP Finals.

“Marian has been by my side during the most important and memorable moments in my career,” Djokovic said.

“Together we have achieved some incredible things and I am very grateful for his friendship and dedication over the last 15 years.



“While he might be leaving the professional team he will always be family and I can’t thank him enough for all he has done.”

Djokovic has played just four matches in 2022 due to his vaccination status and suffered a shock first-up loss at the Monte Carlo Masters last week.

And according to Olympic gold medallist Rosset, the decision to part ways with Vajda could come back to bite Djokovic.

“There is still something bothering me about Djokovic,” the Swiss former player told RTS.

“I’m curious to see what it will be like now that he broke up with his longtime coach, Marian Vajda. Because last time it happened, it didn’t pay off.

“We’ll see if he manages to be as strong as ever without his trusted man.

“Of course, Goran Ivanisevic will always be there, but it’s not the same lemonade between them.
