Salisbury ends Britain’s 39-year wait

Joe Salisbury ended Britain's 39-year wait for a main draw title at the French Open when he combined with American Desirae Krawczyk to win the mixed doubles at Roland Garros on Thursday.

Krawczyk and Salisbury rallied from a set down to beat the Russian pair of Elena Vesnina and Aslan Karatsev 2-6, 6-4, (10-5) to clinch the title on a sun-bathed Philippe Chatrier court.

Britain's last title at the claycourt Grand Slam had also come in mixed doubles when John Lloyd partnered with Australian Wendy Turnbull to win one of the five main draw titles in 1982.

Salisbury has been playing mixed doubles with Krawczyk since the 2018 U.S. Open.
