PARIS - Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic has won his third Roland Garros title and his 23rd career Grand Slam trophy after beating Norwegian Casper Ruud (7-6 (7-1), 6-3, 7-5) in the final on Sunday.
Djokovic, who won after three hours and 16 minutes of play, is also back in the number one position in the ATP rankings.
In the Roland Garros final, he defeated Casper Rudd 3:0 in sets and won his 3rd "Musketeers' Cup", thus becoming the first ever to win each of the Slams at least three times.
However, the 23rd Grand Slam title is much more significant as many consider him the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) because of that, but he didn't want to say that.
Iga Swiatek has battled past Karolina Muchova 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 to win her third French Open title and become the first woman to successfully defend the Roland Garros title since 2007.
The 22-year-old Swiatek is just the third woman in the Open era to win each of her first four Grand Slam finals, the Pole adding to her 2020 and 2022 titles in Paris and last year's U.S. Open triumph.
PARIS - Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic is through to the Roland Garros final after defeating Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 following three hours and 13 minutes of play.
Early in the third set, Alcaraz was forced to forfeit a service game due to cramps and his movement remained limited as a result of the injury despite a medical timeout he took after the set.
The two had dinner at the "Sijena" restaurant, to the delight of all present, and it was immortalized by the photographers of the "Profimedia" agency.
Djokovic and Alcaraz arrived and left separately, and the people who were there did not miss the chance to take pictures or get autographs from the two best tennis players in the world.
