Novak Djokovic wins French Open to complete career Grand Slam

 

Novak Djokovic continues his domination of men’s tennis, winning the French Open, his 12th career Grand Slam title, and completing the career Grand Slam.

Djokovic overcame an early deficit to Andy Murray, losing the first set. But Djokovic quickly rebounded, winning the second set 6-1 and losing just 7 games over the final three sets.

While many talk about the Big 3 or the Big 4 in men’s tennis, this latest win shows that it is really the Big 1. Djokovic has now won five of the last six grand slams and six of the last eight. He has also won 41 of his last 42 grand slam matches.
