June 13th 2021 on Court Philippe-Chatrier, Stefanos Tsitsipas had Grand Slam glory within reach.
At that point the 'Big Three' star took to the on-court microphone and reassured his younger rival.
"I understand how difficult it is losing in a Grand Slam final," said Djokovic, who lost his first three Roland-Garros finals before a 2016 triumph.
"These are the matches and kind of occasions that you learn most from. He will come out stronger and I believe he will win many Grand Slams in the future."
