Date: June 12, 2023
In a one-sided French Open final at the renowned Court Philippe Chatrier, Serbian tennis maestro Novak Djokovic showcased his dominance as he secured a historic 23rd Grand Slam singles championship. The No. 3-seeded player left no room for doubt as he thrashed Casper Ruud of Norway, overpowering him with a score of 7-6 (7/1), 6-3, 7-5 to claim his third Roland-Garros title.
The absence of defending champion and 14-time winner Rafael Nadal made Djokovic, a former World No.1, the outright favorite, further boosting his chances. Throughout the match, Djokovic's unparalleled skills and relentless determination were on full display, cementing his status as one of the greatest players in tennis history.
With this victory, Djokovic etched his name in the record books as the first Serbian player and the first men's player to win all four majors at least three times, solidifying his status as a true tennis legend.
