Ace day as Novak weds sweetheart

By Anthony Barnes

Tennis champion Novak Djokovic says he "couldn't ask for more" after tying the knot with his pregnant childhood sweetheart just days after winning the men's title at Wimbledon.

The Serb exchanged vows with Jelena Ristic in the grounds of Montenegro's Aman Sveti Stefan resort.

"Seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress, smiling and walking towards me – she looked like an angel," he said.

The bride, who is expecting their first child, wore a gown by Sarah Burton, the designer of the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress.

Djokovic added: "To win Wimbledon and to now be preparing for fatherhood – I couldn't ask for more. It really was a perfect moment."
