The match also marked the first time Djokovic came back to win in a Grand Slam final after trailing two sets to one, having lost each of the last seven times this had happened.

Twelve-time champion Rafael Nadal defeated Novak Djokovic in the final, 6–0, 6–2, 7–5 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2020 French Open.

Nadal also became the first player, male or female, to win 100 matches at the French Open and only the second male player, after Federer at the Australian Open and Wimbledon, to win 100 matches at a single Grand Slam tournament.
