SVETI STEFAN, Montenegro (AFP) - Serbian tennis great Novak Djokovic will wed longtime girlfriend Jelena Ristic on Thursday in a civil ceremony at a plush resort on the Adriatic coast, a source close to the family said on Wednesday.

"The civil wedding will take place at Kraljicina (Queen's) beach," the source, who requested anonymity, told AFP.

He added that the religious ceremony would take place two days later with only family and close friends invited.

Kraljicina is located close to Sveti Stefan islet, a luxury property in Montenegro bordered by tree-lined hills where Djokovic and his guests are staying.
