Novak Djokovic Marries Fiancee Jelena Ristic: Wedding Details
First Wimbledon, now wife!
Novak Djokovic married his fiancee Jelena Ristic in Montenegro on Thursday, July 10, Us Weekly can confirm. The couple jetted off to tie the knot just hours after the tennis pro took home a win at Wimbledon.
The Serbian athlete, 27, and model Ristic were feted by about 250 guests for their 6 p.m. civil ceremony. It was held at the five-star resort Aman Sveti Stefan.
It was reported that the couple were set to say "I do" this week following Djokovic's win against Roger Federer at London's Wimbledon on Sunday, July 6.
"I would like to dedicate it to my future wife and our future baby," Djokovic said of his win on the court. "I'm going to become a father soon and I'm still preparing for that. It's a great joy in life." (Djokovic announced via Twitter in April that the couple were expecting their first child together.)
Djokovic and Ristic began dating in 2005 and got engaged last September. They will exchange vows once again with a church wedding on July 12 in front of 15 members of their family.
