The Serbian beat Norway’s Casper Ruud in straight sets to win the French Open for a third time.

In doing so, the 36-year-old has moved past rival Rafael Nadal on most Grand Slam victories in the Open Era.

Brady wasn’t the only high-profile spectator in attendance, as Paris Saint-Germain legends Kylian Mbappe and Zlatan Ibrahimovic watched on together.

Mbappe – PSG’s record scorer – was all smiles as he greeted Ibrahimovic to his seat.

Ibrahimovic is making the most of his free time after calling time on his glittering career at the age of 41 earlier this month.

Meanwhile Mbappe’s French compatriots Olivier Giroud, Benjamin Pavard and Theo Hernandez were also inside the iconic venue.

As too was British actor Hugh Grant, with the 62-year-old known to be a huge tennis fan.

Djokovic has now won his second Grand Slam of the year after triumphing in Australia at the start of 2023.

And he is now looking to become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to win all four Grand Slams in a calendar year.

He is already the favourite to defend his Wimbledon title next month having won at SW19 the last four times it has been held.

Attention would then turn to the US Open at the end of the summer, with Djokovic without a win at Flushing Meadows since 2015.
