New Delhi, June 6: World No. 1 Novak Djokovic defeated Andy Murray to win his maiden French Open title here on Sunday.

The world number one downed old rival Andy Murray 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 to claim a 12th career Major and join Don Budge in 1938 and Rod Laver, in 1962 and 1969, as the only players to simultaneously possess the French Open, Australian Open, US Open and Wimbledon trophies.

"It's a very special moment, the biggest of my career," said Djokovic, one of only eight men to complete the career Grand Slam and who had lost his previous three finals in Paris.

"I felt today something that I never felt before at Roland Garros, I felt the love of the crowd."
