Novak Djokovic wins French Open, completes career Grand Slam
Novak Djokovic defeated Andy Murray 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 to win the 2016 French Open title.
Djokovic is now the eighth man in history to complete a career Grand Slam, and he joins Rod Laver and Don Budge as the only men to ever hold all four major titles at once.
Djokovic broke Murray at love to open the match, but Murray broke right back to even up the score. Murray then put up a decisive hold, finished off with an ace. He carried this momentum through the set to take an early lead, helped along by Djokovic’s 13 unforced errors.
But the world No. 1 would not be denied in his quest for history. Djokovic turned up his aggressiveness and found a consistent rhythm, storming through the second set to win in just over 30 minutes. Murray, who opened the tournament with two grueling five-set matches, looked like he began to wear down mentally.
