The tennis ace’s wife is expecting their second child – here’s what we know
AS Novak Djokovic competes in Wimbledon 2017, his wife Jelena is just as busy carrying their unborn second child.
The couple already have a son together, so here’s everything you need to know about the former world number one’s other half who has been noticeably absent from the player’s box during her husband’s matches…
Who is Novak Djokovic?
Novak Djokovic is one of the most famous and successful tennis players in the world, and considered among many as one of the greatest players of all time.
The Serbian holds the second highest match rate (82.7%) in the Open Era as of June this year and has won 12 Grand Slam singles titles, including Wimbledon three times.
After winning the 2016 French Open, the 30-year-old became the third man to hold all four major titles at once, and the first ever to do so on three different surfaces.
Who is Jelena Djokovic?
Jelena Djokovic – formerly Ristic – has been Novak’s wife since July 2014, having first met in high school.
The couple started dating in 2005 and became engaged in September 2013.
Their son Stefan was born in October 2014.
Jelena, 30, is a big fan of Instagram, regularly sharing loved up snap with her husband on her profile.
She is also the director of their charity, the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which aims to help children in Serbia realise their dreams by improving the country’s education system.
When did Jelena announce her pregnancy?
Jelena used Instagram to announce that the couple were expecting their second child together back in May.
She used a pregnant woman emoji as part of her post with Novak to confirm the rumours she was with child, having been pictured with a bump when she showed up in Monte Carlo for a match back in February.
The couple are believed to be expecting a little girl with local reports in their native Serbia adding the baby could arrive in August, just before the US Open.
