Boris Becker says Novak Djokovic and Andre Agassi can strike positive partnership

The two are set to begin working nearly immediately with the second Grand Slam tournament of the year, the French Open, starting in a week; Djokovic heads into Paris as the defending champion.

"He's making his mark already", Djokovic said. "Everything just came together and I'm very happy that it's happened in such a big tournament". "He played great in all aspects". But also, on the other hand, he s someone that nurtures the family values, philanthropy work.

Djokovic, the second seed and the only previous Masters victor still in contention, plays eighth seed Thiem later Saturday after completing his rain-interrupted quarter-final against Juan del Potro to beat the unseeded Argentinian 6-1, 6-4. "Just couldn't find any rhythm".

Zverev struck the ball with incredible power and showed maturity beyond his years, dominating the Serbian by backing up his outstanding serve with majestic backhand and forehand winners to deny him an early birthday present.

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic will be coached by American tennis great Andre Agassi at this year's Roland Garross (May 28 - June 11).

"I spoke to Andre the last couple weeks on the phone, and we made a decision to get together in Paris", Djokovic said after the match.

"We don t have any long-term commitment".

It's a symbolic reset for the 12-time Grand Slam champion-who turns 30 years old on Monday-and is hoping to revitalize his dominance as the defending French Open champion.

The win also puts Zverev right in the mix as he joins the Top 10, something that he had his eye on from a young age, until reality hit.

Ukraine's Elina Svitolina celebrates after winning during her final match against Romania's Simona Halep at the Italian Open tennis tournament, in Rome, Sunday, May 21, 2017. "Today was one of the best matches I ever played, maybe".

Svitolina will chase a fourth title of the year after trophy triumphs in Taiwan, Dubai and Istanbul.

'Even though I won the title, I will be back on the practice courts very soon trying to improve my game'.

"I'm very happy the way I played, very happy with my performance all week", the victor said.

It was the Ukrainian's first victory over Pliskova in five meetings and set up a semifinal against Venus Williams, seeded ninth, or third seed Garbine Muguruza. That's what he did with me today.

French Open champion Novak Djokovic had eased into his eighth final of the event after losing just one game against Dominic Thiem in a 6-1 6-0 win in the last four.

Halep was playing in her second clay-court final in two weeks after winning the title in Madrid last Sunday.
