The partnership between Boris Becker and Dane Holger Rooney won't be as close to Novak Djokovic's. At least if you go by their working model for the Australian Open, the rest of the year. Boris Becker will commentate on the games at the first Grand Slam tournament of the year from a studio in Munich as a TV pundit for broadcaster Europass – and will not travel to Australia.

What role does Severin Lüthi play?

On the other hand, it also means that the three-time Wimbledon winner will not be able to provide on-site support in Australia. It will be interesting to see if Rooney relies more on former Federer coach Severin Lüthi to work on the court and looks to Becker for advice on mental health issues.

Wi-Fi connections between Melbourne and Munich will be very hot from next year.
