Boris Becker has expressed his delight and excitement after being appointed as head coach of world number two Novak Djokovic for the 2014 season.

Becker will head up the Djokovic team in time for preparation ahead of the defence of his Australian Open title.

Former Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open champion Becker described his excitement at linking up with one of the world’s current leading stars.

“Novak is a terrific player, undoubtedly one of the best in the world, and I jumped at the chance to work with him,” he told GiveMeSport.

“I am certain that we will make a great team and I have confidence that we can make 2014 one of Novak’s most successful seasons yet.”

The move to hire Becker could be a response to the resurgence of Rafael Nadal, who returned from injury last season to reclaim the number one ranking from Djokovic.

Nadal also won a record eighth French Open and the US Open, laying down the gauntlet to his rivals.

Becker will be head coach of the Djokovic camp, which will be mostly unchanged and the Serb’s former head coach, Marian Vajda, will stay as part of the support team.
