Novak Djokovic won his 19th Grand Slam title after coming back from 2 sets down against 5th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the French Open 2021 men’s singles final at Roland Garros in Paris on Sunday. Djokovic clinched glory after downing the spirited Grand Slam final debutant 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

Novak Djokovic, who played 18 sets since his fourth-round match, became the first man in the Open Era to win all 4 Grand Slams at least twice. He is only the third man to do so after Roy Emerson and Rod Laver.

Not many can now argue against the theory that Novak Djokovic is a superhuman! The World No. 1 won his 2nd French Open title after overcoming adversities in a manner that reflects what he has been able to add to the sport over the years. The never-say-die attitude shone through as he notched up two stunning come-back-from-behind wins in a span of 3 days.

Have played two great champions for almost 9 hours: Djokovic

“It was an electric atmosphere. I want to thank my coach and my physio, everyone who has been with me on this journey,” Djokovic said after a relatively less animated celebration post the win.

“I have played almost nine hours over the last 48 hours against two great champions, it was really tough physically over the last three days, but I trusted in my capabilities and knew I could do it.”

Djokovic waited until he got towards his box and let out a loud roar.

The Serb, who is a firm contender for the GOAT tag, has moved one closer to the joint-record of 20 Grand Slam men’s singles titles held by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Incidentally, he dumped out the 13-time French Open champion with a superlative effort in 4 sets in the semi-final on Friday.
