[Luxus+ Magazine] Roland Garros 2023 has set hearts aflutter…and not just those of the players!

This 2023 edition will be remembered for the singles triumph of the two tennis No.1s, Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek, as well as for the many beautiful moments, emotions, laughter and tears. But also, for the nostalgic, a men’s double with the champions of the 80s, including French tennis icon Yannick Noah. He was the last man to win the men’s singles final 40 years ago at Roland Garros.

 

The finals of the 2023 edition of Roland Garros did not disappoint its spectators.

 

Admittedly, with all the French players eliminated in the second round, the Paris tennis tournament had lost a little of its salt for French fans.

 

But for the public as a whole, it was impossible not to be bowled over by the beauty of the game and the twists and turns that brought the competition to a close.

 

Favourites win singles finals

 

In the singles finals, it was certainly the favourites who took the coveted trophies: Serbia’s Novak Djokovic defeated Norway’s Casper Ruud in the men’s final, and 22-year-old Iga Swiatek from Poland beat Czech Karolina Muchova in the women’s final. By winning this Grand Slam for the 23rd time, Novak Djokovic dethroned the record (22 times) previously held by Spain’s Rafael Nadal, who withdrew this year due to an ilio-psoas muscle injury. Now the most successful men’s tennis player of all time, Novak Djokovic has also, naturally, consolidated his position as world number one in men’s tennis.
