Tim P. Whitby/Getty ImagesJelena Ristic is the 27-year-old girlfriend of Novak Djokovic.
She is best known for her super-intense expressions during Djokovic's matches. But she's also the director of the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which aims to bring early-childhood education to young children in Serbia.
Last night in London, Jelena threw a fancy party to benefit the foundation. It raised ~$1.7 million, and included Jeremy Piven doing awkward things on stage, Gerard Butler making funny faces, and Richard Branson.
Jelena breaks the WAG stereotype. She's beautiful and has reportedly dabbled in modeling, but she also has a relatively normal job and cheers at matches like a diehard tennis fan.She tweeted this picture planning out the seating arrangements before the party:
