First player to win 24 Grand Slams in the Open Era

Djokovic has become the first player in the Open Era to win 24 Grand Slams. Earlier, Djokovic was equal to Serena Williams (23 Grand Slams) in terms of winning the most Grand Slams (Men's and Women's Singles). Margaret Court has also won a total of 24 Grand Slams, but 13 of those titles were in her name before the Open Era.

The Open Era in tennis began in 1968 when all players (amateur and professional) were allowed to participate in all four Grand Slams. This is called Open Era.

Margaret was born in Albury, Australia.

Margaret Court was born on 16 July 1942 in Albury, Australia. Former Australian female tennis player Margaret held the record for winning the most singles Grand Slams, which Djokovic has equaled. He won 24 Grand Slam titles in his career. American young tennis player Coco Gauff won the title by defeating Belarus's Arina Sabalenka in the final of the US Open on Saturday. This is the first Grand Slam title of 19-year-old Gauff's career. After losing the first set, Gauff made a brilliant comeback and won the match 2-6, 6-3, 6-2.

Gauff became the first American player since 2017 to win this title. This feat was last accomplished by Solan Stephen in 2017. Gauff is the first American teenage player to win the US Open since 1999. Serena Williams did this in 1999.
