Former Croatian tennis player Ivan Ljubicic has been nominated for 2017 ATP Coach of the Year.
Ljubicic, who coaches Roger Federer, has been nominated for Coach of the Year at the 2017 ATP World Tour Awards Presented By Moët & Chandon.
Since accepting Federer’s offer to coach him in 2015, after a year to forget where he failed to win a Grand Slam title for the third year in a row, the Croatian has managed to help the Swiss find the form that saw him dominate men’s tennis from 2003 to 2010.
Federer and Ljubicic have since won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and Masters 1000 titles together.
Since taking over, Ljubicic has helped his ranking go from No.17 to No.2 in the world.
ATP Coach of the Year is nominated and voted on by fellow ATP coach members. Other nominees are Neville Godwin (Kevin Anderson), Martin Laurendeau (Denis Shapovalov), Toni Nadal & Carlos Moya (Rafael Nadal) and Alexander Zverev Sr. (Alexander Zverev & Mischa Zverev).
