Novak Djokovic became at 36 the first man to win 23 Grand Slam titles in the four most important tennis tournaments.

This Sunday, June 11 marks the history of tennis. Novak Djokovic won this Roland-Garros 2023 and won a 23rd Grand Slam title, against Casper Ruud in three sets.

Novak Djokovic is the only one to have won at least three times each of the grand slam tournaments: 10 times the Australian Open, 3 times Roland-Garros, 7 times Wimbledon and 3 times the US Open. Thanks to this victory, Novak Djokovic becomes world No. 1 again in 388 weeks in this place, a record, before this victory, he equaled Rafael Nadal with 22 titles.

The Norwegian remains convinced that he is no longer far from achieving it

Defeated in the Roland-Garros final by Novak Djokovic on Sunday (7-6 [1], 6-3, 7-5), Casper Ruud failed for the third time in his career on the march of the Grand Slam title.

A year after his final loss to Rafael Nadal, the 24-year-old Norwegian is once again in position to lose to Novak Djokovic, before losing to Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open.

“I believe this final was the most important I have reached, because I proved that what happened last year was not a one-time story. I will probably be more respected by my opponents and hopefully I can build on that to one day win a Grand Slam. In the future, I think I’m going to be a tough player to beat in the best of five sets on clay. I I’ll try to stay at that level.”

Novak Djokovic, already winner of the Australian Open in January and authorized to play the US Open at the end of the year due to the easing of American restrictions linked to Covid-19, he finds himself again in the position of win the Grand Slam, as in 2021. For that, he will have to shine on the lawn of Wimbledon, of which he will be the huge favorite this summer.
