Completing the career Grand Slam was the biggest accomplishment Novak Djokovic achieved while working with Boris Becker.

Djokovic Splits With Becker

Two had worked together since December 2013

Novak Djokovic will try to re-claim No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings next season without the assistance of coach Boris Becker. The two will no longer work together, Djokovic announced on Tuesday.

“After three very successful years, Boris Becker and I have jointly decided to end our cooperation. The goals we set when we started working together have been completely fulfilled, and I want to thank him for the cooperation, teamwork, dedication and commitment,” Djokovic wrote. “On the other hand, my professional plans are now directed primarily to maintain a good level of play, and also to make a good schedule and new goals for the next season. In this regard I will make all future decisions.”

Becker, a former World No. 1 and 49-time titlist, joined Djokovic's team three years ago and, with coach Marian Vajda, helped the Serbian to one of the best stretches in tennis history. During the past three years, Djokovic won 25 titles, including 14 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles, two Barclays ATP World Tour Finals titles and six Grand Slam crowns.

Djokovic completed his career-long goal of winning Roland Garros this season, his 12th Grand Slam title. In doing so, he became the third man in history to hold all four major titles at the same time (Don Budge, 1938; Rod Laver, 1962, 1969) and the eighth man to complete the career Grand Slam. Djokovic also claimed his record 30th Masters 1000 title in July with victory over Kei Nishikori at the Rogers Cup.
