Djokovic Claims 23rd Grand Slam Title with Victory over Ruud in French Open Final

Novak Djokovic beat Casper Ruud 7-6 (1), 6-3, 7-5 in the final of the French Open on Sunday to win his record-setting 23rd Grand Slam title.

Djokovic, who is 36 years old and from Serbia, broke a tie with Rafael Nadal for the most major singles prizes in the history of men’s tennis, which goes back to the 1800s.

Nadal, who has won 14 times at Roland Garros, didn’t play this year because he was hurt.

Novak Djokovic has now won the French Open three times, in 2016, 2021, and now. He is the only person to have won at least three times at each of the four major tournaments. Since 2008, when he won his first Slam title at the Australian Open, he has won 10 more there, 7 at Wimbledon, and 3 at the U.S. Open.

Also worth noticing is that Djokovic is again halfway to a calendar-year Grand Slam, which means he has won two of the four major tournaments. Since Rod Laver in 1969, no man has done this. Djokovic came close to doing this in 2021, when he won the Australian Open, the French Open, and Wimbledon, but lost to Daniil Medvedev in the final of the U.S. Open.

Djokovic will continue this huge quest at Wimbledon, which starts on July 3 on the grass at the All England Club.
