Djokovic and Agassi linked up last spring before the French Open after the Serb split with his longtime entourage, including coach Boris Becker. Coming into 2018, if Djokovic's elbow (and other Gumby-like body parts) stays healthy, Agassi has sky-high expectations. "I want him getting better," Agassi told ESPN.com in an interview in November.

He won titles inside Rod Laver Arena in 2000, 2001 and 2003, which marked the final three major trophies of the eight that he won in his career. He was 29, 30 and 32 during those championship runs.
