17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer says he is delighted to bring in former World No.3 Ivan Ljubicic as his new coach for the 2016 season and believes the fact that the 36-year-old is recently retired can give him an edge – given Ljubicic's knowlege of players still playing on the tour.

Speaking ahead of his appearance in the Dubai leg of the IPTL next week, Federer also praised childhood idol Stefan Edberg, who coached the Swiss star during the past two seasons but has now left the set-up.
