Novak Djokovic has been on fire this year, while achieving the number 1 ranking in Men’s tennis. This ranking and the titles he has won has brought a lot of spotlight to him and part of this spotlight is of course fans wondering who the tennis star is dating. Djokovic is currently dating his countrymate Jelena Ristic, who you can see from the photos above is a beauty. Djokovic is currently 24 years old, while Jelena is one year his elder.
The pair have been dating for about 5 years and the two are expected to get married in Kosovo in October. It has also been reported that Andy Murray, the fourth ranked player in the world will be Novak’s best man! Jelena is apparently a big tennis fan, enjoying both playing and watching, which is good because with Novak never losing matches, she will have a lot of tennis to watch in the upcoming years.
Jelena is currently still in school where she studies Finance and is apparently finishing her Masters Degree.
After a long battle against Troicki at the US Open in 2010, a bit of shade crept on to the court late in the match. Brad Gilbert asked Djokovic what the shade felt like and he replied “it was like sleeping with my girlfriend”.
**I placed a big bet on Novak Djokovic to win the US Open this year and was amazed at how many times they showed Jelena on TV, but I don`t think they mentioned the wedding and neither did Novak in the post match interview. And he still called Jelena his girlfriend instead of fiance.
