The Serbian tennis champ -- who won Wimbledon on July 6 -- tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Jelena Ristic at the Aman Sveti Stefan resort in Montenegro just four days later.

An emotional Djokovic spoke of the upcoming wedding after his memorable win at Wimbledon.

"I would like to dedicate it to my future wife and our future baby," he said. "I'm going to become a father soon and I'm still preparing for that. It's a great joy in life."

Djokovic, a seven-time Grand Slam title winner, proposed to Ristic in September 2013 after eight years of dating.

The couple is expecting their first child later this year.
