Jelena Djokovic is the wife of Novak Djokovic and has been supporting the 17-time Grand Slam winner for a long time

Novak Djokovic added another feather to his crown retaining this year’s Australian Open title overcoming Austrian Dominic Thiem in the recently concluded summit clash.

With this win, the Serbian is now a record-eight-time Australian Open winner and has a total of 17 Grand Slam titles altogether, 3 less than Roger Federer (20) and 2 behind Rafael Nadal (19) respectively.

Meanwhile, Djokovic is regularly cheered on during most of his matches by his wife Jelena – but who is she and what do we know about her?

Who is Novak Djokovic’s wife?

Jelena Djokovic and Novak started dating back in 2005, two years after the Serbian turned pro and have been together since then.

According to sources the pair met each other at school and got engaged in 2013 and married within the next year.

A huge fan of Instagram, Jelena regularly shares photos of her loved ones and husband on her personal feed.

She is also the director of their charity, the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which aims to help children in Serbia realise their dreams by enhancing the country’s education system.

How many children do they have?

The couple have two children as of now. They both became parents to a baby boy named Stefan, who was born in October 2014 and three years later Djokovic confirmed that he once again.

This time it was a daughter. They welcomed the arrival of their daughter Tara in September 2017, when Jelena was visibly absent from her husband’s matches during the Wimbledon matches that were happening at the moment.

Was Jelena at the Australian Open?

Unlike most of the other times, Jelena did not accompany her husband this time as she was busy taking care of other work.

The fact that Djokovic was missing his family was very evident in his words when he said he was looking forward to meeting his family after being separated from them for more than five weeks due to the tour.

She was also not visible during his Wimbledon campaign last year despite being in London. She was looking after their daughter Tara while their son Stefan was seen in the Centre Court with Djokovic’s parents.
