French Open wrap from Roland Garros

Djokovic scooped his third Roland Garros title and 23rd Grand Slam overall, making him the most prolific men’s player in the history of the sport in terms of major honours.

He also became the oldest man to win the French Open aged 36. Djokovic, for the record, is now also the only man in history to win all four Grand Slams at least three times.


Świątek already eyeing out history

World No 1 Iga Świątek, still only 22 years old, won her third Roland Garros title and fourth Grand Slam overall, meaning she’ll be tough to beat at Wimbledon.

Her best performance at Wimbledon to date was a fourth around appearance in 2021, so there’s room for improvement in London for the Pole.
