Novak Djokovic Captures Record 23rd Grand Slam

Serb Dispatches Casper Ruud in Straight Sets To Win French Open

Novak Djokovic is the king of the Grand Slams.

The sensational Serb won his 23rd tennis major on Sunday, defeating Norway’s Casper Ruud,  7-6 (1), 6-3, 7-5, in the French Open final.

The triumph moves Djokovic to the top of the list of men’s singles players, a remarkable accomplishment for the 37-year-old.

He won the Australian Open earlier this year and heads to Wimbledon next month with a chance to continue his pursuit of a grand slam season, winning all four majors in one calendar year.

Djokovic becomes the first player to win each Grand Slam event three times. He won the French in 2016 and 2021.

Ruud started strong, winning the first three games of the match but the tide turned and Djokovic took the first set in a tiebreak. He then rolled in the next two sets.

One GOAT watched another great at the final.
