NOVAK DJOKOVIC is gunning for a NINTH Australian Open crown as he heads to Rod Laver Arena to defend the title he won 12 months ago.
The Serb beat Dominic Thiem in an epic five-setter to win last year’s tournament.
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 been noticeably 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.
