2016 French Open – Men's Singles

Novak Djokovic defeated Andy Murray in the final, 3–6, 6–1, 6–2, 6–4 to capture his first Men's Singles tennis title at the 2016 French Open. Djokovic completed a career Grand Slam and achieved a non-calendar year Grand Slam with this title, becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four major titles at once and the first man in history to do so on three different surfaces.[1][2] Djokovic also became the first man since Jim Courier in 1992 to win both the Australian and French Opens in the same calendar year;[3] Additionally, he spent his 200th week at number one in the ATP rankings during the first week of the tournament and his 100th week in a row at number one in the ATP rankings during the second week of the tournament. Djokovic also improved his record for the most ranking points ever held by any player to 16,950.

Stan Wawrinka was the defending champion, but was defeated in the semifinals by Andy Murray. Murray became the first British man since Bunny Austin in 1937 to reach the final. Murray's run meant he had now also reached the final of each of the four Grand Slam tournaments at least once in his career.

This tournament marked the first time in the 21st century that Roger Federer did not play at a main draw Grand Slam singles event, ending a record of 65 consecutive Grand Slam appearances, the last Grand Slam he missed having been the 1999 US Open.

Twelve-time champion Rafael Nadal withdrew prior to his third-round match due to a wrist injury.[4]
