Tennis star Novak Djokovic is in discussions to sign with IMG Worldwide after leaving CAA Sports, the New York Post reports.

The 25-year-old Serbian pro, who won Wimbledon and the U.S. Open last year, was represented by CAA for four years. According to the Post, Djokovic has also been independently seeking billionaire Ron Burkle's advice "on a friendly basis."

A rep for IMG did not immediately respond to THR's request for comment.

The company previously represented Roger Federer, a Djokovic rival on the court, landing him major endorsements. Other tennis clients include Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova.

This year, Djokovic prevailed at the Australian Open and was defeated by Andy Murray at the Wimbledon finals.
