“Seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress, smiling and walking towards me… She looked like an angel,”  Novak said. “I was trying to be present in that moment and memorise it. I was focused on her, and her smile, and our baby. It really was a perfect moment.”

“I was seeing him through tears and immediately started crying when I saw him. I was just so happy and probably being pregnant makes it quite difficult to control the emotions. I am so blessed to have him in my life. I couldn’t ask for a better partner than him.” Jelena recalls. 

Novak and Jelena’s wedding became an even better day as it came just days after Djokovic’s Wimbledon win in 2014. Novak defeated Swigg legend Roger Federer in four sets to become the 2014 Wimbledon champion.
