Novak Djokovic and Jelena Ristic will reportedly get married after Wimbledon 2014.

The exact details of the Djokovic wedding have proven tricky to track down and misleading news reports have emerged in the Serbian media. There were recent reports claiming that Djokovic and Ristic were to wed this weekend, though it would seem that the couple are instead to marry in the gap between Wimbledon and the US hard court swing.

Serbian daily Kurir claim to have found out about the post-Wimbledon plans from several sources.

"The wedding of our best sportsman will not be held this weekend, but right after Wimbledon," remarked a source close to Kurir.

"Tennis players will have a break of about a month and Novak decided to get married in that period. If he would make the wedding now, Novak would be in big problems, since as early as next week he will go to London, where he will prepare for the coming tournament which is specific as it is being played on the grass and for such surface one needs a period of adjustment."

Due to the lack of official information being provided for the wedding, independent news company inSerbia have expressed their skepticism about the legitimacy of the revelation. Further reports, this time from Montenegro, claim that "preparations for the wedding are being wrapped up."

There has been no statement from Djokovic yet, though the World No. 2 was photographed with an all-male selection of friends in Ibiza following his runner-up finish at Roland Garros. Some believe that this was Djokovic's bachelor party, though the official line was that he “went to the island to recover from an exhausting season on clay and to recharge his batteries for the upcoming Wimbledon.”

Djokovic is currently working on his preparations for Wimbledon and making the adjustments required for grass court tennis. He's scheduled to take part in the Boodles Challenge next week, where he'll play an exhibition match on the pristine Stoke Park lawns.
