NOVAK DJOKOVIC is looking to become an eight-time Australian Open champion as he takes on Dominic Thiem in the final in Melbourne.
But will he be supported by wife Jelena in Melbourne?
Who is Jelena Djokovic?
Jelena Djokovic – formerly Ristic – has been Novak’s wife since July 2014, having first met him in high school.
The couple began dating in 2005 and got engaged in September 2013.
Their son Stefan was born in October 2014 and Djokovic confirmed he was a father again three years later.
The pair announced daughter Tara was born in September 2017, with Jelena having beennoticeably absent from the player’s box during her husband’s matches at Wimbledon the same year.
Jelena is a huge fan of Instagram, regularly sharing loved up snaps 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.
Was Jelena Djokovic at the Wimbledon final?
Jelena Djokovic was not at the Wimbledon final, despite being in London.
While son Stefan was in the Centre Court crowd with Novak’s parents, Jelena was elsewhere looking after daughter Tara.
And after his victory, Djokovic said: Its extra special sharing it with my son in the crowd and my parents, the whole team.
My wife and my daughter are here in London, but theyre at home. So I give them a big, big hug.
A day earlier, Jelena Djokovic posted a picture on Instagram of her children with the location marked as ‘Wimbledon’.
It has been reported that the tennis star’s wife missed ALL of his matches at SW19 this year and the Champions Ball, despite being a regular attendee.
But the pair quickly ended rumours that their relationship was on the rocks, after the Serbian star revealed he was spending time with his family after losing in the US Open.
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 has now won 16 Grand Slam singles titles, including Wimbledon five times.
After winning the 2016 French Open, the 31-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.
