Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer at Italian Open final, thanks to his wife Jelena Ristic and his baby son Stefan.
The world number one is now the clear favorite going into French Open 2015.
But he faced a little bump in the road to victory when he almost got blinded by the champagne cork.
The fans are sure that his wife Jelena Ristic is very happy that her husband avoided this injury.
According to Yahoo! Sport, Novak Djokovic said: “I am very, very fortunate to still have my eye.
We had an argument with Mr Champagne and he certainly threw a punch I will not forget.
He must know I don’t like drinking champagne, so he decided to strike me.
Luckily it was only my nose.” Maybe Roger Federer planned this mischievous practical joke! Novak Djokovic credited his baby son Stefan and his wife Jelena Ristic for all the successes he has had recently.
After his big win at Miami Open, the world number one is forging ahead at this year’s French Open with his eyes on the prize.
With French Open 2015 approaching, the world number one probably has a lot of family time to clock in before he heads to Paris, which he probably also learned from the tennis’ first family man, Roger Federer.
His fans are hoping that he can take another champion’s trophy home to his baby son Stefan and his wife Jelena Ristic.
According to CNN, “For some becoming a father is a tale of sleepless nights and juggling the demands of family life with a professional career.
Not so Novak Djokovic, for whom fatherhood has proved the springboard for even greater success on the tennis court and the motivation for more triumphs to come.” The world number 1 is not just at the peak of his career, but also at the peak of his personal life.
According to News.au.com, Novak sees balancing fatherhood and career a welcome challenge in his life.
The fact that he has his baby and wife to go back to at the end of the day has been a boon to his career as well.
“A day off is spending time with my wife and baby as much as I can,’’ he said according to News.au.com.
