Seniors[edit]

Men's singles[edit]

It was Wawrinka's 2nd Grand Slam singles title, 10th career singles title and his 1st at the French Open.

Stan Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic got off to an even start at 3–3 in the first set, when Wawrinka's serve broke down, allowing Djokovic to win the set 6–4. In the second set, Wawrinka's form improved, and he eventually broke Djokovic on his fifth opportunity, which was set point, taking the set 6–4, although Wawrinka earned three break points on Djokovic's first service game in the third set, at 1–0, Djokovic saved them all and held serve. However, Wawrinka broke serve four games later, firing "a brilliant forehand winner" and "an equally breathtaking backhand" to earn three break points and converting the first, and went on to take the set 6–3; in the fourth set, Djokovic quickly broke Wawrinka's serve and took a 3–0 lead, but Wawrinka broke back to level the set. When Wawrinka pressed on Djokovic's serve to earn two break points at 3–3, Djokovic rebounded with a succession of points to win the game and threaten Wawrinka's own serve at 0–40. Wawrinka then mounted his own comeback to hold serve before breaking Djokovic in the next game for a 5–4 lead, after earning a championship point at 40–30, Wawrinka fired a serve that appeared as though it may have been an ace, but the chair umpire checked the mark and confirmed that the ball was out. Djokovic rallied to earn a break point, but Wawrinka held his nerve and reeled off three points in a row to claim the fourth set and match.[2]

Women's singles[edit]

It was Williams's 20th Grand Slam singles title, her 3rd singles title of the year and 3rd at the French Open.

Serena Williams and Lucie Šafářová contested the finals of the women's singles championship. Williams won the first set 6–3 over Šafářová and started strong in the second set, going up 4–1 and appearing to be cruising toward her 20th major title. However, Šafářová fought back to even the set and take it into a tiebreaker, which she won easily. Momentum on her side, Šafářová won the first two games of the third set, but Williams managed to break her serve with a "heavy return". Williams did not allow Šafářová a single game for the remainder of the deciding set, winning it with the seventh break of the match.[4]

Men's doubles[edit]

It was Dodig and Marcelo's 1st Grand Slam doubles titles.[15]

Women's doubles[edit]

It was Mattek-Sands and Šafářová's 2nd Grand Slam doubles titles.[16]
