After defeating Roger Federer in a five-set classic on Centre Court, Djokovic told reporters he was closing this chapter of his life and looked forward to “spending time with my family and my future wife.” He dedicated the win to Ristic and their “future baby.”

Ristic is due with the couple’s first child later this year.
