Djokovic wins third Roland Garros title and overtakes Nadal overall.

The debate over who is the greatest tennis player of all time is over. Novak Djokovic, at 36 years and 22 days, won his 23rd Grand Slam title, something no man has ever done before.

“Obviously a Grand Slam is a Grand Slam,” said Djokovic at the trophy ceremony. “The four biggest tournaments that we have in our sport. Every single player dreams of being on this stage and winning the trophy at least once in their career. I’m beyond fortunate in my life to win 23 times, it’s an incredible feeling.” Atptour
