Novak Djokovic has opened up about his marriage to Jelena, admitting that it can be a difficult journey at times. In a recent interview, the tennis star revealed that his wife is not always happy with the situation and that it can be quite stressful for her. However, he also praised her for being his “great support” when he is playing on the court. Djokovic also described himself as having the spirit of a wolf, emphasizing his strength and resilience.
Novak Djokovic, who was competing at Wimbledon this week as the competition begins, was excluded from playing at the US Open due to a political disagreement regarding his unwillingness to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
During his time at the tournament last year, his wife Jelena showed her support for the athlete by wearing a shirt with his likeness inside the outline of a wolf. Novak’s t-shirt featured the phrase “I run with my wolf,” which he later explained signified that a relationship with him can be tough.
“It can be very stressful to run with the wolf.”

The Serbian tennis player expressed that he works hard, like a wolf, during his interview at the Flushing Meadow tournament. “It can be very stressful to run with the wolf I know that she doesn’t enjoy it at all times. It’s kind of living on the edge with the wolf,” he said.
The tennis star expressed his gratitude, saying “I love her, she’s my great support.” Jelena, who has been married to the sports star for 8 years, stated that sacrificing her privacy and becoming a public figure on the sports scene as a WAG can bring some hardships.
How did Novak Djokovic meet his wife Jelena?
Novak Djokovic and his spouse Jelena Djokovic have become an iconic couple in the world of tennis. The two first met during their high school years and started a relationship in 2005. Since then, they have been inseparable.
Djokovic had already started his ATP tour career when the couple started dating and Jelena often went to watch his matches from the stands. Djokovic went on to achieve great success, winning a great number of Grand Slams and Masters 1000 titles.
In September 2013, the couple announced their engagement, and on July 10th, 2014, they tied the knot at the luxurious resort of Sveti Stefan in Montenegro. This occurred just a few days after Novak Djokovic secured his second Wimbledon championship, having defeated Roger Federer in a gripping, five-set match.
At the time, Jelena was expecting their first child, a son named Stefan, who arrived in October 2014. Shortly afterward, their daughter Tara was born in May 2017. Ristic, who holds a master’s degree from the University of Monaco, is the administrator of the Novak Djokovic Foundation.
