Who is djokovic dating

PARIS — For Novak Djokovic, the fifth time was the charm. 1 captured the French Open for the first time in his career, coming from behind to beat No.

From 2012 to 2015, he reached the final three times, but Sunday he finally joined Rod Laver, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as the only men to claim the career Grand Slam in the Open era.

It’s the most precious jewel Djokovic can add to his already heavy tennis crown.

He is by far the best man in the world over the last two years and winner of 12 majors, behind only Federer (17) , Nadal (14) and Pete Sampras (14) in Grand Slams won during the Open era.“It's incredibly flattering to know that Rod Laver is the last one that managed to do that,” Djokovic said of holding all Grand Slam titles at once. It's one of the ultimate challenges that you have as a tennis player.”"I’m very proud, very thrilled, obviously," he added.

"It's hard for me to reflect on what has happened before and what's gonna happen after.

I mean, I'm just so overwhelmed with having this trophy next to me that I'm just trying to enjoy this moment.”While Djokovic made more history on Sunday, he put himself halfway to the calendar Grand Slam, not done in men’s tennis since Laver in 1969.

American Jim Courier was the last men’s player to get halfway to the Slam, having won the Australian and French Opens back-to-back in 1992.

It’s another oh-so-close result for Murray, a known boxing fan who has become Djokovic’s punching bag at the finish line of the majors.

Djokovic has won eight out of 10 meetings at the Slams between the two, including the last three finals: the 20 Australian Opens, and again here on Sunday."This is his day today," Murray said on court of Djokovic, his voice cracking.

"What he has achieved the last 12 months is phenomenal.
