There are unconfirmed reports that World No.1 Novak Djokovic is set to celebrate his Wimbledon victory by marrying girlfriend Jelena Ristic. The 24 year-old said: “It might even be good for my game. I have a feeling Roger Federer was much more relaxed after he got married and became a father. Maybe I’ll find the same experience.”
Federer, who got married in April 2009 to Mirka Vavrinec, had a good run of form afterwards, winning the French Open and Wimbledon that year. The Swiss also won the Australian Open last year as a father. If Djokovic was to tie the knot now, the Serb would definitely look to avoid the inconsistent form Hewitt and Roddick experienced after marriage and look to Federer’s achievements after wedlock as a benchmark.
