Ex-Croatian tennis star and now professional coach, Goran Ivanisevic, has revealed he would be willing to join the coaching team of world No.2 Novak Djokovic, noting that not doing so, if offered, would be like turning down Real Madrid.

Ivanisevic, who was at the Australian Open as the trainer of Tomas Berdych before the Czech lost to Roger Federer in 3rd Round, told local media that such an offer is something "you cannot refuse”.

"It’s the dream of all coaches and analysts of the game"

"It would be as if Real Madrid asked you to be the manager,” said the former Wimbledon Champion. "It’s the dream of all coaches and analysts of the game."

Since Djokovic announced his split with Boris Becker last month, the Serb has not replaced the German coach in his team, which is now being led by Marian Vajda and Dusan Vemic.

"It's difficult to comment on changes in his team," Ivanisevic said. "Although he is not number one anymore, to me Novak is the best. He has won everything he had to."
