The woman behind Novak Djokovic's success is none other than his long-time girlfriend Jelena Ristic and the tennis star himself seems to agree with it.
"Jelena is the love of my life. We have been together for a few years and her honesty is what I love about her and what keeps us happy and in love," Djokovic said on NBC's show.
"She is capable, ambitious and strong," he said.
Ristic seems to the biggest fan of boyfriend Djokovic, as her excitement and involvement in his game is brilliant to watch.
The No.1 ranked tennis player in the world, Serbian star Novak Djokovic is dating her for past six years and the couple is all set to marry this year.
She seems to break all the stereotypes about a typical girlfriend, as she is supportive, encouraging her boyfriend all the time. She has also been travelling along with her beau on his ATP tour.
"I'm really proud. It's his dream to be so successful and I'm really happy for him that he managed to, you know, accomplish at least part of his dream," Ristic said. "Hopefully I'll be there to help him and to see him achieving the biggest one, the top."
Ristic seems to be a sports enthusiast and is seen intensely engrossed in his game. Her involvement is marked with her gestures, as she screams, jumps, and claps in excitement.
