What does Novak Djokovic’s wife have to say about their marriage?
A Jelena Ristic described her early connection with Novak Djokovic as “science fiction.” Jelena remembers she was a student just scraping by, and Novak was a very young tennis star who, like him, had little money to waste on extravagant excursions. Airplanes were, at the time, absolutely out of reach for them. They developed, devised, invented these strategies for meeting, for making their relationship work.
Jelena finished her studies and the two moved live together in Monte Carlo. Since Jelena started at a high level in the oil company, their relationship was strained. They couldn’t spend time together because of their schedules. That’s when Jelena made the decision to leave her job. She now feels that if she hadn’t resigned, the relationship would not have progressed.
The Serb won Roland Garros 2021 and will be aiming for a calendar year in which he has already won two grand slams.
