Rare Novak Djokovic Career Grand Slam Racquet from Roland Garros Fetches Record-Breaking $107,482

Novak Djokovic’s tennis racket, used in the 2016 French Open final where he achieved the Career Grand Slam, was recently auctioned for over $100,000.

Securing his first French Open title was one of Djokovic’s most challenging feats in his career. Despite reaching the semifinals four times, he lost in three finals, two to Rafael Nadal and one in 2015 against Stan Wawrinka.

Since his first Australian Open win in 2008, ‘Nole’ had already won 11 Grand Slam trophies, and his 2016 French Open win completed his quest for the Career Grand Slam.

In the final, Djokovic faced Andy Murray for the seventh time in a Grand Slam final, ultimately winning the match with a score of 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4.

After the match, Djokovic threw his racket into the crowd, and a lucky fan caught it. The fan, named Abby, recently decided to auction the racket in California through SCP Auctions, where it fetched $107,482, the highest amount ever paid for a tennis racket in an auction.
