Alexander Zverev sensationally won the masters in Rome

Alexander Zverev sensationally won the masters in Rome

And now we have a new supercoach on the tour, stepping into the shoes vacated by Boris Becker at the end of previous year.

USA tennis great Andre Agassi will coach Novak Djokovic at the French Open.

"I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we chose to get together in Paris", Djokovic said after his defeat to Zverev. "So he's going to be there", said Djokovic.

But the Austrian's dream run was quickly brought to an end by a clinical Djokovic on Saturday as the Serbian took his record to 5-0 against the 23-year-old. The 20-year-old German will break into the top 10 for the first time.Zverev completely outplayed Djokovic, a 30-time Masters victor, controlling play from the back of the Foro Italico showcourt and serving impeccably to avoid facing a single break point. "We don't have any long-term commitment yet".

The title will move Zverev up to a career-high No. 10 in the rankings Monday and place him among the contenders for Roland Garros.

Zverev broke four-time Rome champion Djokovic, the world No 2, in the first game and never relented, solidifying his break advantage with an ace before romping to the finish line.

Novak Djokovic had parted with his coaching staff earlier in the month.

But Zverev was composed throughout and won in one hour and 21 minutes.

"It's such an honour being on the court against one of the best ever players", the world No. 17 said during the trophy ceremony.

Spurs were deserved winners in their final match at White Hart Lane as Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane were the goalscorers.

"I just have to congratulate (Thiem), because he was better than me this afternoon", Nadal said.

The 30-year-old made amends for his comparative lack of playing time with a 6-3, 6-4 win over American Jack Sock on Thursday.

Djokovic will need to raise his game having hit 27 unforced errors to his opponent's 14, but hinted at a big future for the German.

"I played definitely great all week up to today". On the court, he understands the game amazingly well.

This year he will go to the tournament as the new world number 10.

While Halep was able to eventually win the opening set, she required treatment to her ankle from a trainer twice and was late getting to shots as the match wore on.

It was the Ukrainian's first victory over Pliskova in five meetings and set up a semifinal against Venus Williams, seeded ninth, or third seed Garbine Muguruza. Svitolina also required medical treatment midway through the second set for an apparent problem with her left leg.

Right now, there is a similar gap between what Djokovic is doing and can do on the courts, and Agassi certainly has a challenge of helping the 12-time grand slam champion bridge that gap.

On the other hand, Zverev, the 20-year-old German, has been impressively consistent in the ongoing season.
