For the second time in his career, Belgrade – born Novak Djokovic, world #1 tennis player, won the title in Paris on Sunday evening, bringing a total of his Grand Slam titles to 19, only one short of his biggest rivals Spaniard Rafael Nadal and Swiss Roger Federer.

From two sets down Djokovic came back to win the next three against a Greek player Stefanos Tsitsipas at the French Open men singles.

In the semi-finals, Djokovic beat Nadal, who holds 13 Ronald Garos titles, 3-1.

By winning this year’s RG, Djokovic broke yet another record, becoming the only player in the Open Era who has at least two titles at all four Grand Slams.
