London: Novak Djokovic has joined the tennis greats after defeating British second seed Andy Murray 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 to claim his maiden French Open title and take hold of all four grand slam crowns at the same time.
The world number one recovered from a nervous start to impose his pace on Court Philippe Chatrier and clinch his 12th grand slam title after three previous failures in Roland Garros finals.
Djokovic is only the third man after Don Budge and Rod Laver to hold the four majors at the same time, and the eighth man to triumph at Wimbledon and the French, US and Australian Opens.
