Novak Djokovic is the first man since the sixties to hold all Grand Slam titles simultaneously. The first man to hold all the Grand Slam titles at the same time was Rod Laver in 1969.

“He is heavily favored and if he’s playing with the same intensity as he has in the past, his win was just about guaranteed,” Technology Specialist Mr. Myrtil said.

Djokovic beat Andy Murray in the French Open final at Roland Garros. Murray is the number one tennis player for men’s singles in Britain.

During a match prior to the French Open, Djokovic threw his racquet and it almost hit the line judge. The judge was able to get out of the way and avoid it. Djokovic could have been disqualified from moving forward and winning his first French Open had it hit the judge.

“Anger distracts you because when you’re angry, you can’t focus,” freshman Harrison Yeung said.
