Novak Djokovic and Andre Agassi have stopped their partnership as player and coach, according to ESPN.

The network quoted Agassi as saying, "We far too often found ourselves agreeing to disagree."

Agassi joined Djokovic as coach just before the 2017 French Open, but the Serb has played just five tournaments since then because of an elbow problem, and recently underwent surgery. He has not won a round at either of his two tournaments since the procedure, though he did say at Miami that he is now pain-free when competing.
