Jelena posted on Instagram earlier to mark the special date, but Novak didn’t reply.

The Serb was understandably too focused on his match for social media.

But after beating Nick Kyrgios 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(3), Djokovic still needed to be reminded to wish his wife a happy anniversary.

BBC favourite Barker, 66, conducted her final on-court interview before retiring and helped steer Djokovic in the right direction.

The 21-time Grand Slam winner heaped praise on Kyrgios, saying: “Nick, you’ll be back. Not just at Wimbledon, but in finals.

“I never thought I’m going to say so many nice things about you, considering the relationship. Okay, it’s officially a bromance.”

He then expressed his delight when he saw his daughter Tara join Jelena in the box… but still forgot to mention his anniversary.

When Sue reminded him before wrapping up their interview, Djokovic hilariously thanked her.

He said: “I’m going to buy you flowers after this.

“You keep reminding me of things I would be in big trouble if I forgot.”

Jelena beamed throughout the whole thing, overjoyed to see her man win his seventh Wimbledon title.

When her anniversary was mentioned, she laughed and tipped her hat.

Barker also drew a great line when interviewing Kyrgios.

Asked if his first Grand Slam final has made him hungry for more, the Aussie replied: “Absolutely not, I’m so tired.”

Barker overcame a bout of laryngitis earlier in the tournament to resume hosting duties.
