Novak Djokovic storms back to win French Open over Tsitsipas

Novak Djokovic stormed back from dropping the first two sets to defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas in a riveting French Open final on Sunday, winning his second career title at Roland Garros.

Djokovic, 34, looked like he had run out of steam after a quick loss in the second set, but he persevered for a 6-7 (6-8), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over the 22-year-old from Greece.
