Novak Djokovic has had a great tennis career that has put him in the top group of all-time greats. The Serbian tennis star has won 21 Grand Slam singles titles, which is second only to Rafael Nadal’s 22. If he wins the Australian Open final, he will tie Nadal’s record.

Djokovic, who is 35 years old, has won a record-setting 38 ATP Masters titles and 92 ATP singles titles, including the Grand Slams. Last year, Djokovic stirred up trouble in Australia when he was turned away because he wasn’t up to date on his shots. He was then sent home. This time, it’s his father Srdjan’s actions at a pro-Russia protest that have almost overshadowed Novak’s achievements on the court.

Novak’s wife Jelena has been a constant through all of this and much of his career. Here’s what we know about Jelena and how she and Novak got together.

After dating for eight years, they got engaged in 2013.

While Jelena was studying luxury brand management at Bocconi University in Milan and Novak was trying to make it on the ATP tour, their relationship got off to a rough start. Despite this, they were still able to make it work. Hello! reported what Jelena said about those times: “When we got together, it was almost like a scene from science fiction.

“I was a poor student, and he was a young tennis player who didn’t have enough money for expensive trips.”

She went on: “At the time, planes were something we could never have.

“We made these plans about how to meet and make our relationship work.”

When Jelena was done with college, she and her boyfriend moved into a place together in Monte Carlo.
