Does Novak needs Boris again to win RG?

With Boris he achieved what some believed was impossible.

Killed the king of clay inside his own castle.

Conquered the clay kingdom to hold all slams at the same time.

Is it time to hire the right man to do the right job?

Disgust and discuss.

No, because it will never be the same.The result of them teaming up was more due to Djokovic being at his absolute physical peak and tbh injured and/or subpar Nadal.

He was winning 2016 with or without Boris. Nadal wasn’t taking more than a set off him and Murray is Murray. Makes no difference if he hires him now and would’ve made 0 difference in last years final.

Exactly. 2008 and 2011-2013 Djokovic was definitely winning RG with his 2016 draw. It had nothing to do with Becker.

It would be interesting to see if Nadl and the GOAT would agree to swap coaches for 12 months (for the love of tennis not their personal achievements) and see what kind of improvement they would make. One condition only - have Fedr watch every training session so he can (possibly) improve too. Muzz to be their water boy.

He needs Nadal's level to drop to the lowest point in his career again to win RG, and get lucky with the draw too, it has nothing to do with Becker.

Unfortunately someone called Rafael didn't get the memo last year.
He did, but it's Djokovic's call who wins since last year, and he thought he'd make Rafa's slam count even more skewed towards clay so really Djokovic screwed Rafa over by giving him the win in the final.

Serve wouldn't help him, my friend.

In the immortal words of Sir Davos Seaworth: “Nothing f***s you harder than time.” He may have been thinking of Becker here.

Boris never won a single clay court tournament in his entire career, so there are better choices for a clay coach.
