PARIS — Novak Djokovic won his men’s record 23rd Grand Slam title on Sunday with a 7-6 (1), 6-3, 7-5 victory over Casper Ruud in French Open final.

Djokovic, a 36-year-old from Serbia, broke a tie with rival Rafael Nadal for the most important singles trophies in the history of men’s tennis, dating back to the 19th century.

Nadal, a 14-time Roland Garros champion, missed this year’s tournament because of an injury.

This win joins Djokovic’s French Open titles in 2016 and 2021, making him the only man with at least three from each major event. Since winning his first ever Slam trophy at the 2008 Australian Open, he has collected a total of 10 there, seven at Wimbledon and three at the US Open.

Also worth noting: Djokovic is again halfway through a calendar-year Grand Slam – winning all four majors in one season – something no one has achieved since Rod Laver in 1969. Djokovic came close to that feat in 2021, when he won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon and reached the title match at the US Open before losing to Daniil Medvedev.

Djokovic will resume that monumental pursuit at Wimbledon, which begins on July 3 on the turf of the All England Club.
