PARIS - World No. 1 Novak Djokovic lifted his second Coupe des Mousquetaires trophy, also his 19th Grand Slam triumph by taking down Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in the Roland Garros final on Sunday.

The victory set a historic record for Djokovic, who won the Roland Garros title in 2016, making him the first player in the Open Era - and only the third player in history - to achieve the 'Grand Slam' twice. In addition, the victory narrowed his gap with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the list for most major men's singles titles to one.
