Nadal grabs record-breaking 10th French Open title

Nadal grabs record-breaking 10th French Open title

Rafael Nadal is the first player to win 10 championships at the same Grand Slam in the Open era.

The 31-year-old Nadal was overwhelmingly good from start to finish against Wawrinka - and over the past two weeks en route to La Decima, Spanish for "10th".

Spain's Rafael Nadal clenches his fist invictory after defeating Austria's Dominic Thiem during their semifinal match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, Friday, June 9, 2017 in Paris.

Gustavo Kuerten, the much loved Brazilian who was feted along with other tennis Hall of Famers prior to the finale, insisted last week Nadal could win several more French Opens. "That's for sure", said Wawrinka, who had won 11 matches in a row on clay.

Wawrinka had dominated the baseline against Murray and smacked 87 winners but here he was being pushed way back by Nadal's vicious spin. "There are many things I can talk about in the game, about what I did, about what he was doing, that I should have done or tried differently, but in the end of the day, I think it's quite clear the score". "It's the most important tournament in my career and to win again is something I can't describe". He beat Nadal in the 2014 Australian Open and Novak Djokovic in the 2015 French Open and in the 2016 United States Open.

Nadal's total Grand Slam title count now stands at 15, moving him past Pete Sampras into second on the Open Era men's leaderboard, behind Federer (18) and ahead of Djokovic and Australian legend Roy Emerson, both of whom have 12 majors to their names. It's impossible to compare it to another place. In best-of-five matches on clay, Nadal is 102-2. For me the nerves, the adrenaline that I feel when I play in this court is impossible to compare to another feeling.

While analysts assessed Nadal's history, his strokes and his long career before the match, Nadal said he didn't focus on the records.

Nadal forced Wawrinka into another forehand error to break for 2-0 in the second set before the Swiss halted a run of seven games lost with a hold for 1-3. It has been an honour for me to play against you in a second grand slam final.

Nadal was unable to convert four break points in the fourth game.

Nadal showcased his skill and force early on, never trailing, and captured the first set in just over 40 minutes. He is far and away the best clay court player of all time, and his utter dominance on the surface has lifted him into the conversation for greatest player of all time.

Nadal failed to convert any of the four break points he had in the following game, but drew first blood the next time an opportunity arose to take a 4-2 lead.
