    US Open - Murray to be Djokovic's best man
    Fri, 02 Sep 14:45:00 2011



    British number one Andy Murray is to be best man at the wedding of Novak Djokovic when the Serb gets married next month.

    Local media in both Serbia and Scotland reported that the Scot will be stood next to Djokovic when he weds Jelena Ristic in Kosovo in October.
    The world number one's fiancee - who has been his on-and-off girlfriend for five years - is rarely seen at tennis tournaments, instead spending most of her time at the home she shares with Djokovic in Monaco, where she is studying for a masters degree.
    As for Djokovic and Murray, their fierce on-court rivalry belies the fact that they have been friends ever since they started facing each other regularly in junior tournaments at the age of 12.
    Murray won that first match with ease, but since then Djokovic has gone on to have the greater success.
    They still practice and socialise together regularly, even though Djokovic admitted earlier this year that it is difficult to remain friends while being rivals: "The reality is none of us can be real mates while we are fighting for history," he said.
    "But one day, when we've all retired, I look forward to sitting down over a beer with them all, and their families, and remember what we went through."

    I assume this will be later in the month, after Shanghai... and honeymoon delayed until after the WTF.

    Andy Murray as a best man? I mean, I know they are good friends, but I never saw them hanging out together.

    Strange, I haven't heard about Nole's marriage anywhere else.

    Really? Murray as best man? I had no idea these guys were that close off court, I assumed he'd ask one of his Serbian mates or something. It's nice to see them so close.

    Great news for Djokovic!

    Hmmmm, I don't really buy it. Being a best man is a serious stuff and choosing Murray doesn't look right to me. Will see :)

    Jeez people this article is bs. Sure Murray is going to be best man at all Serbian nuptials in Kosovo. And yes, people close to Nole would leak to tabloids that he is getting married but he himself would announce nothing about an impending wedding...

    Very possible. You'd think ND would announce via Social Media. And I wonder about Eurosport too. I remember reading an article about the ATP schedule changes; then I posted here what they reported - Rotterdam was losing its tournament. Turned out not to be true and I got ripped for it.

    (If this is true) I was thinking the same thing - Game Over! :)

    Methinks something has been lost in translation...more likely Murray is in the wedding party but someone else like one of Novak's brothers is the best man.

    Sure anytime :)

    Pop down to Balboa one day and we can pick up a doubles set on the challenge court ;)

    It seems when players get married 10% of the time they improve and 90% of the time they deteriorate

    "Remember what we went through" makes it sound like they went to war together

    Djokovic will probably have a best man for different languages. Murray for the English language folks.

    I wonder how good Murray's Serbian is these days when he comes to give his best man's speech?? :lol:

    Seriously, has there been any official announcement on Djokovic's website or elsewhere that he's planning a wedding next month?

    Until I hear something more official about this,I think I'll just put it down to idle newspaper gossip!

    I hope Nole doesn't fall into the 10% that improve.The rest of the men will feign injury if they make the final against so not to be embarrassed.

    Good lord he is way too young and rambunctious to get married this early. And it will kill his game, it always does. And she is NOT hot enough to get excited about. Don't do it bro.

    I wouldn't get too excited yet. The sources of the "news" are not exactly reliable sources.

    "Local media in both Serbia and Scotland reported that the Scot will be stood next to Djokovic when he weds Jelena Ristic in Kosovo in October."



    These sources sound like tabloids...and to have Murray as best man when he's got 2 brothers???

    Pffft. Eurosport.co.uk ennis has been know to post some very silly items in the past.


    And it's nowhere on the internet other that here.

    Yep. That is not true at all. Djokovic stated that it is impossible to be friends with Nadal,Murray, or Federer as they are biggest rivals.

    Wow! Eurosport has become tabloid sports coverage.

    Good one, but Ryan would cause some damage if he was related to Novak. Know where you are going though.

    Great news. Hopefully, Murray will take a hint and tie the knot with Kim soon.

    It's a hoax. Complete fabrication. Novak is not marrying anyone.

    I agree. This does not look like the best source and I don't see anything else in the media re this subject.
