Rafael Nadal Wins Record 10th French Open

Rafael Nadal wins record 10th French Open

The Spaniard has just claimed his TENTH French Open title, defeating Stan Wawrinka in this afternoon's final and he did so in typically imperious fashion.

Nadal was up against the Swiss, who had a 3-0 record in Grand Slam finals until yesterday.

The victory was Nadal's first in a Grand Slam since winning the 2014 French Open. "It is true that this one is going to be one of the more special for the number, for what happened on the ceremony after the final, for so many things", he said. "This is the most important event of my career".

"From the beginning from my side, for sure, I didn't play my best tennis", he said.

And following an historic triumph, the 31-year-old said it was "impossible" to describe his emotions.

The Swiss star hoped to win his fourth Grand Slam title in as many finals, and while the records of each of the players created a breeding ground for intensity, emotion and battle, Nadal surged to a dominant win against Wawrinka 6-2, 6-3, 6-1.

After the heartbreak of losing the Australian Open final to Roger Federer earlier in the year, emotion overcame Nadal after the match, but he was ruthless for its entirety.

"I am not the right one to say, but to play 10 finals here is something hard".

Wawrinka added during the trophy ceremony: "Nothing to say about today". But the 2015 champion could not convert it and it proved to be the only break point he earned all afternoon.

"To play Rafa on clay in the French Open in a final is probably the biggest challenge you can have in tennis", he said.

In the 19 times that Nadal has now played Wawrinka, the Spaniard has won 16, winning the match every time he won the first set. After holding his serve in the first game, Nadal broke Wawrinka's serve to love in the next.

Despite being up against the undisputed king of clay, Wawrinka came into the final full of confidence after beating top-ranked Andy Murray in the previous round.

Rafael Nadal the victor then, with a tenth French Open crown in just 13 years as the tennis world now turns its collective attention to the grass-court season and Wimbledon.

"You are a great example and it's always been an honour to play against you". He did not drop a set in his seven victories in Paris in 2017. From the opening serve, the win was nearly never in doubt for the 31-year-old Spaniard, who now has a record 10 French Open victories to his name.
