It’s a girl!
12-time tennis Grand Slam title winner, Novak Djokovic, and wife, Jelena have become parents for the second time. The baby was born on Saturday evening and will be named Tara.
The couple met in high school and got engaged in September 2013 before marrying in an idyllic ceremony on Sveti Stefan in Montenegro on July 10, 2014.
In October of the same year, the Serbs announced the birth of their son, Stefan.
With the birth of baby number two and the expansion of the family, Novak Djokovic can look on the bright side after pulling out of the 2017 tennis season in July due to a recurring elbow injury.
Maybe it was not terrible timing after all, as he can fully focus on his growing family at this time without tennis getting in the way.
The current world number five might have missed the birth of baby Tara if he had been competing at the ongoing US Open in Flushing Meadows.
Djokovic will return to tennis action at the start of the new season in January 2018 after giving himself time to recover fully.
Tennis legend, Serena Williams also gave birth to a baby girl just a day before. It’s raining babies in September! Perhaps the newborn daughters of these two tennis greats would grow up to be tennis greats themselves. Too early to pressure them.
