Novak Djokovic rallies back to win French Open, 19th Grand Slam title

Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic rallied back after dropping the first two sets of Sunday's French Open final to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4, grabbing his 19th Grand Slam title. 

Djokovic's second trophy at the French Open moves him just one major championship shy from tying the men's record of 20 shared by Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. 

The 34-year-old is also the first man in Open Era history to win all four Grand Slam titles twice. He won the French Open in 2016, has nine wins at the Australian Open, five at Wimbledon and three at the U.S. Open. 

Djokovic, the reigning Australian Open champion, is halfway to a calendar-year Grand Slam, which is something no man has done since Rod Laver in 1969. 

Wimbledon is scheduled to begin June 28, and the U.S. Open is set to start August 30.
