Novak Djokovic eagerly waiting for his child's birth
Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic, who recently got married to his long-time girl-friend Jelena Ristic, is now eagerly waiting for the birth of his baby.

World No.1 Novak Djokovic tied the knot with his love Jelena Ristic four days after lifting the title at SW19 in July and now the couple is expecting a baby later in the year.

“Without a doubt, life changes. You know, priorities change,” Djokovic told reporters on Saturday ahead of Monday’s start of the US Open, the last Grand Slam of the season. My priorities, my family, my wife, my future kid. You know, tennis is not definitely not number one anymore.” That is not to say the seven-times Grand Slam winner is taking his tennis lightly. The proud champion, who thrives on the hard court, aims to make the most of the prime years ahead of him. “I’m feeling better and better as the days go by. Obviously I want to peak with my form in the US Open,” said Djokovic, who has reached the US final four years in a row, claiming the title in 2011.

“I have high expectations for myself. Especially at this stage of my career where I feel like now is the time that I’m at my peak physical strength,” he said. “I want to use this time of my career as much as I can to win as many matches as possible.”

The Serb, who won Australian Open four times on the hard surface, has clearly not been his totally focused on his tennis after he registered victory over Roger Federer at the All England Club in London. “I wanted to do better in Canada and Cincinnati. Unfortunately I wasn’t even close to my best. But a lot of things happened in the last two months, and it was a very emotional period. I just felt a little bit flat on the court.”

“But it’s all normal. It’s something that I’m experiencing for the first time, right?” added Djokovic. “Obviously I talk with people who are around me who have they dealt with that, how that has affected their careers, their mindset, their overall life.”

 “I with no doubt have only positive and joyful feelings approaching fatherhood, and hopefully it’s going to happen in less than two months,” he revealed.

“Then I’m going to enjoy it and try to take as much energy as I can, positive energy to kind of transfer that to the tennis court.
