Six-time Grand Slam champion Boris Becker has been confirmed as world No. 2 Novak Djokovic's new head coach.

Djokovic, currently behind Rafael Nadal in the ATP world rankings, also has six Grand Slam victories to his name and is hoping that Becker's knowledge and experience can help him add to that tally in 2014.

"My goal for 2014 is to play my best tennis and to get in shape for the Grand Slams and Masters 1000," Djokovic told his official website on Wednesday.

"These tournaments have the most weight in our sport and I want to prove my worth at them. The team is now strengthened and we hope for maximum results."

Djokovic is also confident that Becker will prove to be a valuable addition to his team, working alongside Marian Vajda, Miljan Amanovic and Gebhard Phil-Gritsch.

"Boris is a true legend, someone who has great tennis knowledge and his experience will help me win new trophies from the Grand Slams and other tournaments," he added.
