Novak Djokovic took to Instagram on Thursday night to post a picture of himself taking part in his first practice session since the birth of his son.

The Serb’s wife Jelena Ristic gave birth this week, with Djokovic revealing on social media that the couple’s first child has been named Stefan.

Djokovic posted the picture above on Instagram and wrote: “First practice as a dad. Not a bad hit for an old man.”

The 27-year-old had previously confirmed the news of the birth on Twitter.

“Stefan, our baby angel was born!” Djokovic wrote. “I’m so proud of my beautiful wife Jelena! Thank you so much for your love and support. We love you all!!!”

Djokovic and wife Jelena have been together for more than eight years and married four days after he won his second Wimbledon title in July.
