Novak Djokovic with French Open win holds 23 Grand Slam title

Tennis great Novak Djokovic made history in men’s tennis as he defeated Casper Rudd in the French Open final on Sunday to win a record 23rd Grand Slam major title.
After the win, an emotional Novak Djokovic beamed with pride as he reflected on his historic achievement.
“I knew going into the tournament, going into the match, especially today, that there was history on the line. But I try to focus my attention and my thoughts on preparing for this match to win like any other. For the best possible match,” Djokovic told reporters.
“For me, on a day-to-day basis, I’m the best on the court, because with that state of mind, that’s the only state of mind or spirit that can lead to historic results and that trophy. After that, the numbers. There are statistics, but we have many different factors. It depends on the point of view of a person or organizations who discuss these things. So I don’t want to get involved in these discussions. I am writing my own history. Yes,” he added.
Djokovic defeated Rudd 7-6(1), 6-3, 7-5 to claim the third Roland Garros title of his illustrious career.
Ruud made a strong start against the Serbian on Court-Philippe Chatrier but the three-time Roland Garros champion responded with a draw. The first set featured high-quality performances from both players as the set progressed to a tie-breaker.
Early on, Djokovic trailed 1-4 in the tiebreaker, but from that point, he hit some of his better shots to win the set in a 13-minute victory.

Later, Rudd made a comeback but it wasn’t enough as Serbia extended their lead to claim their record-breaking title.
With the victory, the three-time French Open winner will reclaim the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings from Carlos Alcaraz.
Djokovic surpassed Rafael Nadal as the oldest Roland Garros champion at 36 years and 20 days, and with the victory he became the first man to win all four Grand Slam events at least three times.
