In the French Open 2021 Men’s Final, World number one Novak Djokovic has won his 19th Grand Slam title by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in a five-set thriller. Djokovic became the first man in 52 years to win all four majors twice when he came from two sets down to beat Tsitsipas. His incredible journey included beating defending champion Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals.
Djokovic made a comeback in the third set, winning it 6-3 with ease. It was also the first set in the macth where Djokovic took the lead and managed to maintain it. Earlier, Stefanos Tsitsipas took a two set lead over the world number one Novak Djokovic. Both players have covered their court brilliantly and played some smart tennis. Stefanos Tsitsipas revealed that he lost his grandmother five minutes before the start of the French Open final against Novak Djokovic on Sunday. In an Instagram post early Monday morning, the 22-year-old dedicated his first Grand Slam final to her. “Five minutes before entering the court my very beloved grandmother lost her battle with life. A wise woman whose faith in life, and willingness to give and provide can’t be compared to any other human being that I have ever met,” Tsitsipas wrote of the grandmother on his Instagram post. Tsitsipas is widely seen as the natural heir to the sport’s ‘Big Three’ of Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal but, after receiving the bad news, he said there are more important things in life than winning trophies.
“Life isn’t about winning or losing. It’s about enjoying every single moment in life whether that’s alone or with others,” he wrote.
