He is without doubt the only Frenchman who can reach the final of a Grand Slam.
This afternoon's final of Wimbledon (London), which is the third Grand Slam tournament in the season, will be refereed by Valentinois Renaud Lightenstein. It will be Novak Djokovic (world number 1) against Nick Kyrgios (47th player in the world) at this level of competition. The withdrawal of Rafael Nadal from the semi-finals allowed the Australian to take part in his first major tournament final.
The Dromois, 41, will referee his second final at the venue, having previously sat in the chair during Rafael Nadal's coronation against Dominic Thiem during Roland Garros 2019.
Notable: Aurelie Tourte, a Frenchwoman, refereed the final of the women’s tournament.
