SVETI STEFAN, Montenegro (AFP) — Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic and his longtime girlfriend Jelena Ristic wed yesterday in a gazebo civil ceremony on a lawn at a posh Adriatic resort.

The event, held in a park above a beach close to the luxury Montenegro islet Sveti Stefan, was attended by "the families, close friends and some hundred guests," said a source close to the families who requested anonymity.

Among the guest's attending yesterday's ceremony were Russian tennis players Maria Sharapova, Djokovic's coach Marjan Vajda and his wife, as well as his Serbian fellow tennis players Viktor Troicki, Nenad Zimonjic and Janko Tipsarevic.

On two beaches just opposite Sveti Stefan, some 50 people gathered hoping to see the newly-weds.

The 27-year-old Djokovic — who won his second Wimbledon title on Sunday — and Ristic are expecting their first child later this year.
