MONACO (AP) -- Novak Djokovic says tennis great Boris Becker has joined his coaching staff for next season.

The 46-year-old Becker, a six-time Grand Slam champion, will travel with Djokovic and other coaches to tournaments, including next month's Australian Open.

Djokovic says Becker "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."

Djokovic won his fourth Australian Open title last year and finished the 2013 season ranked No. 2 in the world behind Rafael Nadal.
