Novak Djokovic has proven himself to be a true hard-hitting racket athlete, displacing other gentlemen of the game such as Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, and Roger Federer. While slowly establishing himself as the leader of the Big Four in tennis, he has defeated other rivals such as Stan Wawrinka and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and earned his nickname – The Serbinator.
Apparently, there is a similarity between his gallantry on the tennis court and the cyborg figure of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the popular science fiction movie “The Terminator”.
Novak Djokovic was born on May 22, 1987, in Belgrade, Serbia; Novak Djokovic was only four years old and a casual observer at a tennis training camp when Jelena Gencic called him onto the tennis court and handed him a racket.
Today the Serbian tennis professional has more to offer than just reigning as the best player in the world for 223 weeks in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) ranking. Winning the crown at 12 events on the ATP World Tour 500 is also one of the lowest of his achievements; the Serb has 30 titles in the Masters 1000 series to his credit. He has also won 5 titles in the ATP finals and 12 Grand Slams.
Novak Djokovic Wife, Son, and Affair
For a man widely regarded as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, it is only natural that Djokovic’s performances on the court should be above his self-image and cast a shadow over his personal and love life.
But when people like Novak are discussed in the news, it is usually because they have reached a new high point in their chosen profession or because they have done what they should not have done. For the latter reason, it was a big deal when it turned out that the marriage of the Serbian tennis king was burdened by a series of extramarital affairs.
His alleged extramarital relationships were always portrayed with an exaggerated account of his romantic adventures before marriage. As early as 2011, it was rumored that Novak and Natasa Bekvalac, a pop star from his country, were having a passionate relationship. Although Natasa announced that there had never been such a bond between her and the tennis star, rumors of such a relationship continued even after Novak Djokovic married Jelena Ristic. This was also the case with Lidija Popovic (DJ Lady Lee), the lady he had dated before choosing Miss Ristic.
Apart from that, Djokovic has been amorphously associated in the same way with a Ukrainian lawyer named Victoria and Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone. Interestingly, DJ Lee, who claimed to have only maintained a platonic friendship with Novak after their paths split, came out and announced that Djokovic would be happier if he was with Padukone.
The Serbian judge married his wife Jelena Novak sometime in July 2014, after they had got engaged the year before. The union was a high point in a relationship that lasted a handful of years; the two met in high school and became lovers in 2005.
Apparently, Jelena was pregnant with her first child when they got married. In the same year that they became life partners, they took in their son exactly in October and named him Stefan. Stefan Djokovic soon became a brother of Tara, the couple’s second child. She was born in September 2017.
After all, we have experienced, Novak Djokovic’s wife is passionately interested in education and learning new things. Her interests cover a broad spectrum, ranging from branding, entrepreneurship, and strategy development to writing and healthy eating.
Jelena Djokovic received her degree in Business Administration and Management from Bocconi University in 2008. Afterward, she earned a Master’s degree in Luxury Goods and Services from the International University of Monaco (IUM).
Since October 2015, Ms. Djokovic has been the National Director of the Novak Djokovic Foundation, a humanitarian organization founded by her husband in 2007. She is also the founder and Managing Director of Original Magazine, a publication focusing on the lives and work of super-famous celebrities and popular personalities around the world. While still a director of her Jelena Ristic Consulting, she has worked as Global CEO of her husband’s foundation (2011 – 2015) and as Human Resources Coordinator for Tamoil SAM.
Height, Weight, and Body Measurements
Even though there are different opinions that the physical characteristics of a tennis player, such as his body measurements, have little to do with determining performance, there is a school of thought that suggests the opposite and attributes some advantages to a player’s height.
In any case, all athletes are expected to be in good shape and stay fit. That is why Novak Djokovic strives to maintain his body weight of 80 kg. In the meantime, he doesn’t have to worry about his height if there are indeed disadvantages that a not-too-tall tennis player brings with him. The man is one centimeter taller than 188 cm (6 feet).
It was assumed that other details of his body measurements – chest, arms/biceps, and waist – measure 38, 13, and 32 inches respectively.
