Calendar Grand Slam 'achievable', insists Djokovic

Novak Djokovic's first French Open title came after heartbreaking losses in his three previous finals in ParisNovak Djokovic insists the enticing prospect of becoming only the third man to sweep a calendar Grand Slam and the first since Rod Laver in 1969 is “achievable”. The world number one captured a first French Open at the 12th time of asking on Sunday, becoming just the third man in history to hold all four majors at the same time. The 29-year-old’s 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win over Andy Murray allowed him to claim a 12th major and join Don Budge, in 1938, and Laver, in 1962 and 1969, as the only players to simultaneously possess the French Open, Australian Open, US Open and Wimbledon trophies.
