It may have taken him a while, but Marinko Matosevic was finally able to end an incredible drought.

During the first round of the 2014 French Open, Matosevic was able to take down Dustin Brown in four sets. Matosevic hadn't won a Grand Slam match in 12 previous attempts, setting the record for the most attempts before advancing to the second round of one of these events.

Matosevic was clearly relieved after the win, and he began to roll around on the clay court. It may have gotten his clothes dirty, but I'm sure Matosevic didn't mind.
