Novak Djokovic climbs atop tennis peak following 23rd singles grand slam win

The 36-year-old Serb has claimed back the throne of the men’s ranking, after taking down Norway’s Casper Ruud with a sublime performance in the French Open final on Sunday.

Djokovic was not playing particularly well at the start of the match, but he was able to win the first set via a tiebreaker and go on to win the match 7-6 (7-1) 6-3 7-5.

With this victory, Nole surpassed Rafael Nadal as the holder of the most Grand Slam titles. He now has a total of 23 Grand Slams and has also become the first man to win all four major Grand Slams at least three times.
