Djokovic drafted in the eight-time Grand Slam winner in May after splitting with long-time coach Marian Vajda and several members of his coaching team following a disappointing year in which his form declined since his 2016 French Open win and he lost his ranking as world number one.

Under Agassi's guidance, Djokovic reached the quarter-finals of the French Open and won the Eastbourne International title before Wimbledon.

However, the 30-year-old's campaign was cut short because of the right-elbow injury which forced him to retire during his quarter-final against Tomas Berdych at the All England Club.

Djokovic has not played since, but is working his way back to full fitness with one eye firmly on January's Australian Open and his camp have confirmed that Agassi will be continuing as his coach.

A statement on the Serbian world number six's website read: "We can confirm that Agassi remains the head coach while Italian Marco Panichi will take over as the fitness coach and Argentine Ulises Badio is the new physio.

"The only remaining issue is appointing a second coach and that will complete the staff accompanying Djokovic in 2018."
