Djokovic wins his second French Open

Novak Djokovic made a remarkable comeback and won the French Open title after a thrilling match against Greek, Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Djokovic fought back back after dropping the first two sets to beat Tsitsipas 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 at Roland Garros.

This was the Serb’s 19th Grand Slam title and he is only one shy of Federer and Nadal who have won 20 titles each.

Amazingly, Djokovic became only the third player in history to win all the Grand Slam titles two times.

In the semi-final, he managed to beat 13-time French Open champion Nadal in a match that lasted more than four hours Friday night.

Incidentally, that was only Nadal’s third career loss in 108 matches at the clay-court major tournament.

The women’s title winner was the unseeded 25 year old Czech, Barbora Krejcikova.

She won just her fifth major tournament as a singles player by beating 31st-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 in the final at Roland Garros on Saturday.
