Novak Djokovic and Girlfriend Jelena Ristic Are Sport's Dynamic Duo

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterSeptember 7, 2013

Novak Djokovic has moved into the semifinals at the U.S. Open, but eyes and cameras may wander enough to spot one of the most vibrant supporters in the sport, Djokovic's girlfriend Jelena Ristic. 

As USA Today noted, the Serbian star will play in his seventh straight U.S. open semifinal when he takes on Stanislas Wawrinka on Saturday. 

Perhaps some praise should be given to the woman who is one of the most animated of sports fans. The two, according to The Daily Mail, have been dating for about six years now and serve as one of the more entertaining tandems for fans. 

Business Insider recently illustrated the many moods you can expect to see from Ristic as she watches her boyfriend play a tight match. 

The Daily Mail reports the couple knew very early on they had something special. "She met the Serbian tennis star at Sport High School and her mother described it as love at first sight."

Ristic is an amazing woman who finished her Masters Degree with honors and, according to the report, is looking to procure her PhD in management. 

In the meantime, she has her hands full as the director of the Novak Djokovic Foundation, an organization that helps "socially underprivileged" children and families in Serbia. 

To that end, Ristic threw a star-studded soiree this summer to raise money and awareness for the foundation. 

Business Insider's Tony Manfred reported on a party that featured the likes of Jeremy Piven, Gerard Butler and Richard Branson. The fun and frivolity netted some serious cash, as they reportedly took in $1.7 million during the fundraiser. 

The two undoubtedly savor the glitz and glamour of the celebrity life, as can be seen in a photo shoot video from 2011 below. 

However, they are two people who work hard to stay grounded and give back to those who need it. Ristic will once again entertain when the cameras catch her in the stands, and Djokovic will captivate as only he can.
