UPDATE 07/06/2014: Just days after the 2014 Wimbeldon is over, Jelena Ristic will become Novak Djokovic’s wife.
The couple, who have dated for years and are expecting a child together, are set to finally tie the knot on July 9th, just three days after Novak plays in the men’s final against old foe Roger Federer. The two are reportedly being married in Montenegro in front of many fellow tennis players as well as the usual cast of friends and family.
After getting engaged in September, announcing a pregnancy in April, playing in a Wimbeldon Championship and getting married in July, it’s been a hell of a calendar year for Djokovic and Ristic. Congratulations to the couple
UPDATE 04.24.2014: Novak Djokovic’s girlfriend Jelena Ristic is pregnant.
The excited 26 year old tennis star took to Twitter to let the world know the news, saying “Jelena is pregnant!!! We will be parents soon! #blessed.”
Djokovic and Ristic announced their engagement in September, and though no wedding date has been announced, 9 years of dating would suggest that their kid is clearly being brought into a stable happy family. Congratulations!
Novak Djokovic is taking the tennis world by storm. The Nadal rival is pushing him to the limit every time the two seem to hit the court. Djokovic is a personable star, and exactly what the tennis world needs. While the pressing question about Who is Novak Djokovic’s girlfriend looms, he wants to let the world know how much he appreciates her.
During the 2010 US Open in New York, court temps climbed over 100 degrees. After falling behind 2 sets to 1, a shade came across the stadium, helping Nole to bounce back and win in 5 sets. Following the match, he had the hilarious interview below.
Go watch it. We’ll wait.
Funny analogy right?
Well, let’s meet the girl whose love feels like shade on a hot day, Jelena Ristic.
The couple have been together since 2005, and while there’s not a whole hell of a lot to say about the Belgrade resident it’s clear he’s into her. The two were introduced through mutual tennis friends, and have been dating on and off for the better part of 6 years. She recently completed a degree in Economics. Past that,… your guess is as good as ours.
