NOVAK ĐOKOVIĆ won the French Open on Sunday. In the final, 4 hours and 11 minutes later, he defeated the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas with a 6:7 (6), 2:6, 6:3, 6:2, 6:4 reversal.
For the 34-year-old Djokovic, this is the 19th Grand Slam title of his career, only one point behind Nadal of Spain and Roger Federer of Switzerland, who are tied for the first place in history. But with Sunday’s victory, Djokovic became the first player in the Open era to win four Grand Slams at least twice.
Federer is at the top of the list, but he feels threatened, at least according to the latest statement.
“In my opinion, the most important issue in tennis today is the number of Grand Slam titles. I don’t like that. For most of the tournament year, we are actually participating in ATP tournaments,” said the Swiss. Continue to say:
“I used to just want to break the Pete Sampras record. I always say that every Grand Slam after that is a pure reward for me.”
Finally, he praised Djokovic.
“The way he made a successful comeback against Sisipas was amazing. He also had incredible moves in the semifinals against Nadal.”
