Novak Djokovic on Sunday defeated Andy Murray 3-6 6-1 6-2 6-4 to clinch his maiden French Open title.
The victory seals the notable achievement of holding all four grand slams at the same time.
The world number one recovered from a shaky start in Sunday’s Roland Garros final, in which he fell a set down against a seemingly rampant Murray, to impose his pace on Court Philippe Chatrier and claim his 12th grand slam crown.
British number one Murray began brightly and struck the right balance between defense and attack to claim a convincing first set, but from then on it was all Djokovic, who overwhelmed his opponent to avoid becoming the first man to lose his first four French Open finals.
Despite a late rally from Murray, who broke the Serb’s serve at 5-2 down, it proved too little too late in the face of a determined, focus and destructive Djokovic, who collapsed to the ground following his monumental win.
