Meet Mr. And Mrs. Novak Djokovic!
by Tom Gainey | July 22nd, 2014, 10:05 am

Just days after wedding longtime girlfriend Jelena Ristic, Novak Djokovic has made his first public statement.

In a post earlier today, the world No. 1 wrote on facebook: “Mrs. Djokovic and myself are sending you one big #hug from Belgrade Thank you all for beautiful wishes! Last couple of weeks were the best weeks of our lives and now with new energy we are turning to new challenges!”

And he added a tweet as well:

Djokovic and Ristic were married last Thursday in Montenegro.

The Wimbledon champion is expected to return to tennis next month in Toronto for the Canadian Open.

Hippy Chic Says:

It always amazes me when stars say its a private afair,with select guests etc and im not picking on Novak here as many famous people do exactly the same,then they sell the rights to the pictures to Hello magazine for a gazillion dollars/pounds,Jelena looks lovely here so does Novak,and i honestly do hope that they will all be very happy together,but the kitsch of celebrity weddings is all abit too Katy Price OTT at times IMO….

Hippy Chic Says:

I do realize however that they have donated the money to his foundation,so it is all in a good cause,so well done Novak….

Anna Says:

Hippy Chic : You took the words right out of my mouth!!! I thought this exactly : There is nothing “private” about their wedding at all!!Selling their rights to Hello magazine?????? Am I missing something here??????? does not any sense at all!!!

Colin Says:

Is it just me, or does she have a facial resemblance to Laura Robson?

As to the wedding, let’s face it, most folk, if they get the chance, like to show off. People who are plain and unattractive often adopt an eccentric appearance to get noticed, even if not admired. Look at some of the Goths. Or don’t!

jane Says:

Loads of money to chairty. No paps and photographers at the wedding or on the night except for the one with the rights. One planned set of photographs for fans, that is clear and not grainy. Seems like win, win, win to me. But of course some will find negatives.

Congrats to them!

Cant wait for American hard courts though.

jonathan Says:

Agree with Jane. Privacy is not necessarily all or none. Just means some limitations and control of the situation but some just want to find negatives.

Congrats to NoleFam. Ooops! Almost put a hashtag in front of that. Wouldn’t want to upset the hashtag polizei! :)

Hippy Chic Says:

Jane sorry i spoke,i guess im not aloud an opinion evidentally?anyway i agree looking forward to the HC season and back to some tennis,and all the best to Novak and Jelena and baby for the future,and both looked stunning BTW….

Hippy Chic Says:

Jelena isnt wearing any make-up in that top picture,and she is very naturally beautiful and doesnt need it,a refreshing change from the women celebrities who usually wear that much they have to remove it with a trowel….

Polo Says:

Hi, Hippy Chic. Nobody is disallowing you to have an opinion. Jane was just giving her opinion to your opinion. This is an open forum anyway.

And to Anna who’s misising something, read Jonathan’s comment at 1:18.

Hippy Chic Says:

Polo fair enough….
Sorry Jane no harm or foul or anything….

Hippy Chic Says:

Sorry and hi Polo too :))….

Polo Says:

Hippy Chic, like you I can’t wait for the US Open but I haven’t decided who to root for (that’s if Federer won’t be it). It’s definitely not one of the upcoming players. Maybe Ferrer but that’s like barking at the moon.

jonathan Says:

JJ’s comment on wearing cosmetics during a match:

Q: I heard you say that you stopped wearing makeup on court. Is that right?

JANKOVIC: Oh, can you see I have makeup? Of course not. All naturale. (Laughs) I gotta make you laugh a little bit. It’s late at night. […] I’m getting older, and I only put makeup when I go to the parties or go somewhere where I want to look nice. Here I want to look like a beast. I just want to look as scary as possible. I don’t want to look pretty and all nice and dolled up. For what? Anyway I’m going to get dirty and sweaty. The only thing is that my hair has to be slick. (Laughs.)

Hippy Chic Says:

Polo im sentimental so i think it would be fantastic for Ferrer to win a GS,and he made the final of the FO so you never know,but a tall order i would think?one of the nicest guys on tour too,and our pyschic friend has said it will be either Federer or Wawrinka,Rafas my favorite 1st then Murray,and i do think it would be lovely to see Murray get back into the winners circle again,or fantastic to see somebody new Raonic,Dimitrov,Nicky.K,Nishikori etc etc, i really like Nisikori and i hope for good things for him,and it looks like Tomic is finally begining to take tennis seriously,exciting times ahead….

Hippy Chic Says:

Jonathan the only time i wear make-up is when im going for a night out,and ive had my husband and one or two friends male and female say to me you look nice,but you dont need to wear make-up,to which i reply thankyou but it just makes me feel better about myself….

Hippy Chic Says:

Hippy Chic Says:

Unfortunatly i will miss the second week of the USO,as i will be away at a camp celebrating the Autumn Equinox….

RZ Says:

@Colin – now that you mention it, I can see the resemblance in the wedding pic above. I think it’s the facial expression.

Hippy Chic Says:

RZ yeah me too,both are very pretty anyway….

Wog boy Says:

@jane, you are right, it was very “public” wedding with red carpet, all those socialites, private jets, famous world musicians and reporters all over the place. Just to prove your point, few pictures, civil&church parts of wedding, I’ll try one link at the time

Okiegal Says:

I can’t wait to see the bambino…regarding makeup….very very few women can go without it, imo. I wouldn’t be caught dead without my war paint…..definitely is better for everyone around me if I wear it!! LOL Looking forward to USO too, but will be tuned in for Montreal and Cincy whenever.

Patson Says:

“Mrs. Djokovic and myself are sending you one big #hug from Belgrade”

Hugging Mr. and Mrs Djokovic back from tennis-x. NoleFam all the way !

Hippy Chic Says:

Wogboy you know me better than that by now surely?i dont have a problem with Novak and i did wish him well,and said how nice it was that they donated funds to his foundation as a gesture etc,i just get a bit irritated with celebrity kitsch sometimes,

Hippy Chic Says:

I myself am hopefully getting married again within the next couple of years,to the same man….

Polo Says:

This may explain why Federer won’t be retiring soon. He works hard at staying at the top and makes it worthwhile for his sponsors. He is so good that even at his age, only a handful (not even one handful) of athletes much younger can beat him. And the guy looks classy and well spoken. A great athlete and person, a sponsor’s dream. There won’t be another one like him for a long long time.

Polo Says:

Of the upcoming players, the one I hope to win a majors first is Raonic. He seems like a nice guy (except for the net cord incident with del Potro for which he subsequently apologized), works hard and plays straightforward tennis with no irritating behavior.

Margot Says:

erratum: “plays straightforward, boring tennis…”

Daniel Says:

Polo, indeed the “Federer brand” is something never seen in tennis before no wonder he is the number 1 sportsman right now. The more he plays the more he solidify his status.

It’s like these days when you say to somebody you hardly knew you like tennis and they immediately say Federer, the aura effect.

Hippy Chic Says:

I agree in that Roger is the best and probably the most branded tennis player ever,and ONE of THEE best sportsmen ever,but i always think things get a touch OTT when people say THEE best/most popular overall sportsperson ever,if tennis happens to be ones favorite sport and Federer your favorite player,then i suppose its only natural for people to say that,but there are many sportmen/women whom are very popular in their own fields of sport Bolt,Phelps,Farar,Sir Steve Redgrave(5 consecutive gold medals),Thompson etc,cant we just have best ever tennis player,and one of the best ever sports men/women and leave it at that,im not a hater,but surely the fawning gets too much sometimes IMO?

Hippy Chic Says:

Such a slow time in tennis ATM,that its a shame tennis isnt part of the Commonweath games like the Olympics is IMO….

Polo Says:

And Federer is a very effective in whatever product he pitches. His name is tightly associated with the products. If you do a word association naming a celebrity after a product, e.g Rolex, Moet Chandon, Lindt Chocolate, Federer is the name that would come up most frequently. And that’s why he gets to big bucks from those companies.

Giles Says:

Not surprised “the old one” is still hanging around the sport instead of hanging up his racquets. One would think with 4 kids now he would be glad to give his old bones a rest and spend some quality time with the little ones. It’s all about the big $$$$$$. He will milk it as long as he can.

Polo Says:

Hippy Chic, it is not fawning but rather a statement of fact that Roger Federer, in a tie with Tiger Woods, gets the highest endorsement deals of all the athletes in all fields. Both got $65M in endorsement deals in 2013.

Hippy Chic Says:

Polo fair enough,its just something i find a bit OTT,most popular this most popular that etc,i just dont understand why they dont all get credit in their own areas of greatness….

skeezer Says:

Great post and link. Thanks. The man stands alone. He wouldn’t be getting all these endorsements if he they didn’t think he is one of the most marketable athletes on the Planet.

M. J. Says:

You’ve got to hand it to Mr. Djokovic for doing the right thing — marrying the gal he knocked up. The man has integrity.

Peep Says:

he’s not the only one with integrity-fed and bagdatis have it too!

dari Says:

I’ve always had a soft spot for Jelena. What a cute couple congratulations on the many many joys they are celebrating right now !

skeezer Says:

You’ve been missed ;).

Hippy Chic Says:

Peep and M.J Novaks beens with Jelena 8 years,and Roger and Mirka were together along time too,they are couples who i would think are obviously very much in love,nothing to do with marrying because their girlfriends being pregnant,please try not to be so cynical….

Liz Says:

I just read the beautiful spread about Novak and Jelena’s wedding, in Hello magazine. Congratulations to Novak and Jelena, and may they have many, many happy years together and with children and families. We look forward to watching Novak play in Canada in the Rogers Tennis Tournament, coming up in August 2014.

skeezer Says:

Yes a great looking couple and at a great time in Nole’s life. Best success to their lives together and Nole’s 2014 as NUMBER 1 in the world over all others in their prime.
