Kimberly Says:

Congrats to the,, I hope they will be very happy they seem like a nice couple with a good relationship

Steve 27 Says:

Congratulations, it seems he will follow the steps of Federer.
Is Djokovic planning to be a father next year, too?

Alex Says:

Congrats to them. I always wondered who of the three of Rafa, Andy and Novak is first.

Sean Randall Says:

So who’s on the guest list?

Andy Murray, yes and perhaps a groomsman.

Nadal…Federer…maybe? We know Novak’s dad doesn’t like either.

Also, who’ll be next to drop, Murray or Nadal? I’ll bet Murray.

Anna Says:

Don’t think it will be Rafa. He’s always said marriage and family is for after his career. I don’t think any of the Nadal uncles, or his dad married until they were 30+, so that precedent has been set. Also. the family dynamics is quite different between Maria and the Nadals, and Jelena and the Djokoviches. I think Maria feels quite comfortable in her relationship with Rafa and his family, where as (if you can believe the tabloids) Jelena and the Djokoviches have struggled a tad. An engagement is a good way to affirm the relationship to the world and maybe further remove papa and mama Djokovich from the spotlight.
