Novak Djokovic Wins 2016 French Open – Tennis superstar Novak Djokovic has defeated Andy Murray to win the 2016 French Open.
The victory gives Djokovic his first ever win at Roland Garros, and makes him the 3rd man in history to be the defending champion of all 4 grand slams, and the first to do it since Ron Laver did it in 1969.
Murray won the first set 6-3, but lost the next 3 1-6, 2-6, 4-6 to concede the title to the dominant Serbian.
“It’s a very special moment, the biggest of my career,” said Djokovic, who now has 12 career titles. “I felt today something that I never felt before at Roland Garros, I felt the love of the crowd. I drew the heart on the court, like Guga, which he gave me permission to do. My heart will always be with you on this court.”
It’s the fifth time Murray has lost a Grand Slam final to Djokovic, and the Brit admitted that Djokovic rightly won on the night.
“To Novak, this is his day,” said Murray. “What he’s achieved the last 12 months is phenomenal; winning all the Grand Slams in one year is an amazing achievement. It’s so rare in tennis, and for me personally, it sucks to lose the match, but I’m proud to have been part of today.”
