Novak Djokovic is trying to recapture some of his old magic. (AP)

Novak Djokovic is further reassembling his old team—alongside longtime coach Marian Vajda, former trainer Gebhard Phil-Gritsch is also now back.

Djokovic is training in Belgrade this week for Madrid with both Vajda and Phil-Gritsch. Both have agreed to work with him during the clay-court season but there is no further agreement, said Serbia's Novosti. It added that Djokovic's recent clay-court defeats led him to conclude that his fitness needs more work.

Novak Suffering from Anorexia

Novak Djokovic's diet is one of the most popular topics these days. The Serbian doesn't apparently eat meat and he defined himself as "vegetarian" or "pescatarian". The Swiss nutritionist Jürg Hösli is upset by the Serbian player, who dropped in the rankings following a elbow injury.

'I always admired Djokovic for his game, attitude, his way to move on the court,' Hosli wrote. 'But when I recently listened that he had made drastic changes in his diet, I asked myself when the crisis would come.

What we are seeing are the results of anorexia that can be defined as the obsession for a diet based only on apparent healthy food. Djokovic looked for a radical solution in his diet without considering the long-term consequences.

And reducing carbohydrates and totally avoiding the sugar is a big error. At the beginning you feel stronger because cells start to store more oxigen but muscled produce less and less lactic acid. The moment when he starts losing the possibility to produce and burn lactic, results are dramatic. He also mentioned, 'He will feel even worse when he reaches the limit of his strength, he will suffer stress issues as the quality of sleep decreases and a social isolation of the person gets produced', Hosli added.
