Novak Djokovic made history: he won his 19th Grand Slam trophy after winning the 2021 edition of Roland Garros after beating Stefanos Tsitsipas (5th) and it is only one major to equal the record of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
The first trophy the Serbian won was the Australian Open in 2008, after beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 4–6, 6–4, 6–3 and 7–6 (2). Three years later he returned to consecrate himself in the first Grand Slam trophy of the year (6–4, 6–2 and 6–3 against Andy Murray) and continued with Wimbledon and the US Open 2011 (both against Nadal). In 2012 he could only win the Australian Open, also against the manacorí.
During 2013 he continued to overwhelm Australian soil and beat Andy Murray 6–7 (2), 7–6 (3), 6–3 and 6–2. The following year he demonstrated a fantastic level of tennis on the All England turf and beat Federer at Wimbledon 6–7 (7), 6–4, 7–6 (4), 5–7 and 6–4. 2015 started it, as the Serbian is accustomed to us, lifting the Australian Open against Andy Murray.
That year he would complete it by winning Wimbledon and the US Open, both with triumphs against Roger Federer. During 2016 his victim in the finals was Andy Murray. The Serbian beat him in the decisive duels of the Australian Open and Roland Garros. Then, starting in 2018, Djokovic started an impressive winning streak in terms of finals contested: he played eight and won seven. Those triumphs were Wimbledon and US Open in 2018, Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2019, Australian Open in 2020, and Australian Open and Roland Garros in 2021.
