Djokovic wins 19th Grand Slam title in a thrilling final

Novak Djokovic claimed a 19th Grand Slam title and became the first man in 52 years to win all four majors twice when he came from two sets down to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas in a gripping Roland Garros final on Sunday.

The world No 1 triumphed 6-7 (6/8), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 over the Greek 22-year-old who was playing in his first Slam final. Djokovic is now just one major away from equaling the all-time record of 20, jointly held by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

It was a second Roland Garros crown for Djokovic after his 2016 victory and adds to his nine Australian Opens, five Wimbledon titles, and three at the US Open. The 34-year-old is the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four Slams on multiple occasions and just the third in history.
