Novak Djokovic: The Baby Is Due In A Month
by Tom Gainey | October 1st, 2014, 10:14 am

Novak Djokovic confirmed that he and wife Jelena Ristic are expecting the arrival of their first child a month.

“We are expecting it to happen in about a month,” Djokovic said on Tuesday. “So for now I’m playing here. I’m playing Shanghai. I’m supposed to play Paris and London. Nothing particularly changes in terms of tennis schedule.”

A “month” means the baby should arrive around November 1. That puts the due date during the final weekend of the Paris Indoors, which, as he says, he is scheduled to play for a 10th straight year (he won the title in 2014).

Or Djokovic could really be pointing to the free window in between the Paris Indoors and the ATP Finals. For Novak, a November 4 or 5 arrival would be the perfect time for the baby to arrive.

Let’s see if the little baby cooperates.

Djokovic returned won his 21st straight match earlier today in Beijing beating Vasek Pospisil to advance to Friday’s quarterfinal round.

Hippy Chick Says:

All the best to the three of them,and im sure the Djokovics will make great parents….

Hippy Chick Says:

Nooneen why would you be dissapointed in Novak?

Giles Says:

No matter, just curious that’s all!

Hippy Chick Says:

Giles do you have children just curious??

Wog boy Says:

Nooneen, Nole didn’t commit any sin, not in denomination he belongs.

Btw, women do give birth in Serbia too.

Wog boy Says:

@jane, I think she will stay in MC, doesn’t make any sense to go to Belgrade just for the sake of giving birth in Belgrade since she is maintaning her pregnacy in MC and her doctors are there. There is no privacy in Belgrade, everybody (including nurses and doctors in hospital) will try to see her and little Vladimir, God bless them all.

billyboy512 Says:

wasn’t this baby due months ago?

jane Says:

wog boy, yes, makes sense, since they live there and have for years, maybe even since jelena was going to school in italy, that was their home base?

billyboy512, initially i heard it was in october at some point, so i guess end-october, or beginning november. that’s always been the rough dates i’ve heard or read.
