Novak Djokovic has hinted that his wedding to fiancée Jelena Ristic is scheduled between Wimbledon and the hardcourt season.

The world No. 1 said he would be taking a break from the sport after his Wimbledon victory.

''There are few important things coming up, events. Getting married. Of course in a few months becoming a dad,'' he said.

Though he would not go into specifics, Djokovic indicated he would not be spending much time on court until preparing for his next tournament.

''I think I can close the chapter of my tennis career just for little bit now. I think I deserve that for few weeks to rest, to enjoy, be with my fiancée—my wife to be—and my family,'' he said.
