The score is love-love for Novak Djokovic and Jelena Ristic.

The world's top-ranked tennis player and owner of six Grand Slam singles titles announced that he will marry his high school sweetheart from Serbia.

They join Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting on the list of high-profile tennis engagements Thursday. Andy Murray and Kim Sears ... we're waiting, guys.

"We're engaged!!! Getting used to introducing Jelena as my fiancée and future wife," Djokovic, 26, wrote on Instagram and posted a photo of Ristic kissing him.

"Couldn't be happier."

The tennis great reportedly proposed to his gorgeous girlfriend of eight years over the weekend in Monte Carlo, Monaco, where he currently lives.

The couple first met in high school in Belgrade. Ristic, a former swimwear model, earned a master's degree in management from Milan's Bocconi University.

She is frequently seen cheering on her beau on tour and also runs the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which benefits underprivileged children in their homeland.

The newly engaged pair, a very popular duo (they are often called the Prince William and Kate Middleton of Serbia), plan to get married next year.

Congratulations, Novak and Jelena!
