    French Open: Djokovic becomes French Open champion, first player to win four Grand Slams twice in Open era

    Paris. Serbian veteran Novak Djokovic put in a superb performance to win the French Open men’s singles title. In Sunday’s final, he defeated Greek youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas in a five-set match 6-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. It was his second career French Open and 19th Grand Slam title overall.

    Not only that, he became the first male player to win four Grand Slams twice in the Open era. He is the third player overall to win four Grand Slams twice or more. Djokovic thus equaled the records of Australian tennis greats Rod Laver and Roy Emerson, who won all Grand Slam titles twice or more.

    Djokovic, 34, previously won the title in Paris in 2016. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have more titles than him, both winning 20 Grand Slam men’s singles titles.

    Greek youngster Stephanos reached his first Grand Slam final but was denied the title. He is the first player from Greece to reach a Grand Slam singles final. He reached the semifinals of the French Open last year and made his way to the semifinals of the Australian Open for the second time this year.

    As for the match, Djokovic’s start was not special and Tsitsipas dominated the opening two sets. Tsitsipas won the first set 7-6 and the second set 6-2. After that, Djokovic showed surprise and won the next three sets. With this, he managed to win the French Open title for the second time.Undecided
