Novak Djokovic's wife gives birth to their second child

BELGRADE, Serbia -- Novak Djokovic's wife, Jelena, has given birth to a baby girl, their second child, according to reports in Serbia.

The daily newspaper Blic said Sunday the pair has named the baby Tara. The 30-year-old Serb is also father to a 3-year-old boy, Stefan.

Djokovic's former coach Boris Becker congratulated the couple on Twitter, saying, "Wonderful news from Jelena/Novak!!!"

The 12-time Grand Slam champion has skipped the US Open and has opted to sit out the rest of the 2017 season because of an elbow injury.

The former top-ranked Djokovic has said he will return to action at the start of 2018, having retired from Wimbledon during his quarterfinal against Tomas Berdych.
