Djokovic Makes History At The French Open For 23rd Grand Slam Win

Djokovic has pulled ahead of Rafael Nadal as the male tennis player with the most Grand Slam wins and he is just one behind Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24

Novak Djokovich became the winningest male tennis player of all time on Sunday at the 2023 French Open when he beat Casper Ruud 7-6, 6-3, 7-5 on Court Philippe-Chatrier.

The Serb has now won all four Grand Slam events-Wimbledon, the US Open, the Australian Open, and the French Open at least three times each.

The world No. 3 started poorly, losing the first three games of the first set, but fought back to take the set after a tiebreak at 7-6. He needed to save a break point in the eighth game to level scores at 4-4 and took the first set after one hour and 21 minutes.

Djokovic raced to a 3-0 lead in the second and wrapped up the set in 52 minutes. The third set saw Ruud try to enact a rude awakening, but the 22-time Grand Slam champion was in no mood for handing out early Christmas gifts, and he fended off the Norwegian’s challenge to take the third set 7-5 after three hours and 13 minutes.

Djokovic has now equalled Serena Williams’ Grand Slam total and is just one behind record-holder Margaret Court, who leads the way with 24 Grand Slam titles.
