Novak Djokovic and Garbine Muguruza captured the French Open Men and Women’s crowns over the weekend in contrasting fashion, according to a CNN report.

It took World No. 1 Djokovic four sets, 3-6 6-1 6-2 6-4, to beat Andy Murray in the final on Sunday, June 5, and the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win four straight grand slams, the eighth man to complete the career grand slam and the first man to claim the first two majors in a calendar year since Jim Courier in 1992, the report said.

Meanwhile, Spaniard Muguruza dispatched World No. 1 Serena Williams in straight sets, 7-5 6-4, for her first Grand Slam.

Muguruza also became the first female Spaniard since Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario in 1998 to win the French Open.
