Paris: Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray at the men’s singles finals at Roland Garros to add one more Grand Slam to his account and complete his career Grand Slam.
Djokovic was at his best to ensure he grabbed his maiden French Open title and became the first man since 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam titles concurrently. He beat Murray 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 at the Roland Garros on Sunday.
He became the eighth man to have won all four of the major singles titles in a single calendar year. This was the top-seeded Djokovic’s 12th appearance at Roland Garros, and his fourth final appearance which he utilised to create history.
On the other hand, Andy Murray has now lost eight of his 10 Grand Slam finals.
“It’s a very special moment, the biggest of my career; I felt today something that I never felt before at Roland Garros; I felt the love of the crowd,” said Djokovic after winning.
“To Novak, this is his day. What he has achieved in the last 12 months is phenomenal; winning all the Grand Slams in one year is an amazing achievement. It’s so rare in tennis, and for me personally, it sucks to lose the match, but I’m proud to have been part of today’s match,” said Murray.
