World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has won the 2021 French Open men's singles title, defeating Marcel Sisipas to win the title and completing a grand slam on both laps. After losing his first Grand Slam final, Sisypas has said he has no regrets and will turn to the grass court season to try for better results.
In the 2021 French Open men's singles final, he came back from 0-2 down in five sets to win 3-2 (6-7(6)/2-6/6-3/6-2/6-4) to win his 19th Grand Slam title. Remembering that, Djokovic also became the first Grand Slam winner of double lap or more in the Open era, and only the third in history. Only Australian Emerson and Rod Laver had previously accomplished such a feat.
The first set between the two men was a close one, until Sisypas struggled to win in a seven-game tie-break.
Sisipas played brilliantly in the second set, winning 6-2 with ease. But Djokovic gradually found his form, winning in straight sets (6-3/6-2) and taking the match to a decider.
In the final set, Djokovic broke first as Sisipas became increasingly impatient and made more errors, eventually losing 4-6. ,
Ahead of the 2021 French Open, Djokovic and Sisipas have played each other seven times, with Djokovic holding a historic 5-2 lead and three best-of-three victories on clay-court, and the trio's dominance in tennis remains unchallenged.
