FRENCH OPEN 2021: NOVAK DJOKOVIC WON 19TH GRAND SLAM
Stefanos Tsitsipas Lost to Novak Djokovic on the French Open Final
Novak Djokovic just won his 19th Grand Slam, a step closer to his rivals; Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. But Novak just wrote his own history. He became the first man in the Open Era that won every slam twice. Djokovic came back from two sets down and claimed the grand slam by the score 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4, over the Greek tennis player, Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The 2021 Roland Garros is the first grand slam match by Tsitsipas. “Life isn't about winning or losing. It's about enjoying every single moment in life, whether alone or with others. Living a meaningful life without misery and abjection. Lifting trophies and celebrating wins is something, but not everything.” wrote Tsitsipas on his Instagram account.
Djokovic, on the other hand, also gave credit to his team. "It was an electric atmosphere. I want to thank my coach and my physio, everyone who has been with me on this journey," he said. "I have played almost nine hours over the last 48 hours against two great champions. It was really tough physically over the last three days, but I trusted in my capabilities and knew I could do it."
As usual, no one doubted Djokovic’s mentality. The Roland Garros 2021 is not the first time for Djokovic to show his comeback game. During the Wimbledon 2019, Djokovic saved Federer’s championship point in order to get the slam.
Novak and his team are now eyeing the Tokyo Olympics to earn the golden slam. The Olympic gold medal is the only trophy that the Serbian does not have. Nadal is the only tennis player to have the career golden glam. But Djokovic’s team has no doubt about his goal in life.
“As much as Novak is healthy, and he's healthy right now, he's in great shape, I think he has the ability to win the Grand Slam this year,” said Novak Djokovic’s coach, Marian Vajda.#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial
