Novak Djokovic has been defeated in the French Open tennis final, losing to Stan Wawrinka 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4, in Paris on June 7.

In doing so, Wawrinka put a stop to Djokovic's 28-match winning streak and left the 28-year-old Serb ruing another close call at Roland Garros.

This was the third time in the last four years that Djokovic lost in the final at the clay-court tournament, the only major title he has never won.

The eighth-seeded Wawrinka, so long in the shadow of his Swiss Davis Cup teammate and friend, Roger Federer, collected his second major title after last year's Australian Open.
