The world No.2 confirmed that the eight-time Grand Slam champion would join his team, initially on a temporary basis, ahead of Roland Garros, which starts on May 28.
After splitting with former coach Boris Becker at the end of 2016, Djokovic announced earlier this month that he had made wholesale changes to his team, parting company with long-term coach Marian Vajda, fitness coach Gebhard Gritsch and physiotherapist Miljan Amanovic in a bid to rediscover what he called the "winning spark".
"I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we decided to get together in Paris. So he's going to be there," said Djokovic following his defeat to Alexander Zverev in the final of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia. "We'll see what the future brings. We are both excited to work together and see where it takes us. We don't have any long-term commitment. It's just us trying to get to know each other in Paris a little bit."
