Novak Djokovic and girlfriend Jelena Ristic getting married after Wimbledon
The 27-year-old Serbian tennis stud won his seventh major and second Wimbledon Sunday, and he will be celebrating something even bigger a few days later: a marriage.
Djokovic and his longtime girlfriend Jelena Ristic are getting married, and Blic Online reports that the wedding is scheduled for Wednesday the 9th, just three days after the conclusion of Wimbledon.
Blic says the wedding will take place in St. Stefan Peninsula in Montenegro. The guest list reportedly includes many Serbian tennis players and other members of the tennis world, including Viktor Troicki, Janko Tipsarevic, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Nenad Zimonjic, Andy Murray and Maria Sharapova. Murray was bounced from Wimbledon in the quarterfinals and also is said to be planning a wedding in the near future.
One notable element of the upcoming wedding is that Ristic is pregnant and due in October. She’ll be 6 months pregnant at the time of their marriage.
Nole and Ristic got engaged in September after many years of dating. She has been a prominent figure traveling the tour with him and supporting him in his matches.
Even though planning a wedding can create a headache and nerves for many people, it doesn’t seem to be affecting Djokovic, who reached the finals with a four-set win over Grigor Dimitrov, and defeated Roger Federer in five to win it all.
