Before being a great tennis player, Novak Djokovic is above all a man who immediately fell in love with a certain Jelena Ristic. It is in Belgrade, on the school benches, that the two students fall in love with each other. Only, the young man is preparing to travel the world, from tournament to tournament, to reach the highest level of world tennis. For her part, Jelena Ristic goes to Italy to study marketing. Despite the distance, the two lovebirds will eventually reunite and announce their engagement in 2013. The following year, they say “yes” to life on the island of Sveti Stefan, Montenegro.
But Jelena Ristic, now Jelena Djokovic, is not only the wife of the world number 1 in tennis, nor the mother of his two children. Indeed, the 34-year-old young woman is above all an entrepreneur who never fails to commit. She is the director of the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which promotes education in Serbia and helps underprivileged children. That’s not all. Since 2015, she has also been at the head of Original magazine, free and primarily intended for students.
Jelena Djokovic is a very influential woman on social networks
But these are not the only facets of the mother of a family. Very influential, she is very active on social networks. On many occasions, she shares bits of her life, always taking good care to protect her children. While she has no less than 515,000 subscribers on Instagram, she shares her looks photos. She is passionate about fashion and loves to show it off. In addition to all his activities, she does not miss an opportunity to support her husband and goes, as soon as she can, to the tournaments where he plays.
