Roger Federer wife, Novak Djokovic wife battle for cheers
It wasn’t just Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battling at the US Open on Sunday; their wives were also dueling.
Throughout the US Open finals, ESPN’s cameras kept flashing to Mirka Federer and Jelena Djokovic for their reactions to the action. At times they were tense, but the rest of the time they were their husbands’ biggest supporters as they clapped following good points.
Here are both wives as they cheered on their husbands at various points in the match:
Mirka was joined in the Federer box by Roger’s dad and coach Stefan Edberg. Coach oris Becker was also in Djokovic’s box along with Jelena.
Federer’s children — two sets of twins — must have been at home. Ditto with Djokovic’s son, who was born last year, months after Nole and Jelena got married during the summer. The Djokovics have been dating since 2005, while the Federers have been married since 2009. Cool fact: Roger’s wife Mirka used to be a professional tennis player and the two met at the 2000 Olympics.
