Rafael Nadal revels in the instant history of 'a ideal Roland Garros'

Rafael Nadal revels in the instant history of 'a ideal Roland Garros'”

Rafael Nadal won his record 10th French Open title by dominating 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 in today's final.

Rafael Nadal has completed the fairytale, winning his tenth French Open crown without dropping a set as he recorded a triumphant victory over Stan Wawrinka in the final.

Nadal improved to 79-2 lifetime at Roland Garros and lifted the trophy for the first time since 2014 after disposing of Wawrinka in just two hours and five minutes.

A 10th singles title at the clay-court Grand Slam represents a professional era record - no player has won more singles titles at the same major event as the 31-year-old. Nadal. Nadal established himself as a star-in-the-making, beating Roger Federer in four sets in the semifinals in the first Grand Slam meeting of their great rivalry, before getting past Puerta for the title.

Whether or not that happens, Nadal's lack of points to defend in comparison to Murray - who only lost two matches after the French Open a year ago - make it seem virtually nailed on that he will overtake him at some point in the next six months.

Nadal acknowledged afterward that he dealt with a real case of jitters while he waited for the final to resume Monday after it was suspended in the fourth set because of rain Sunday night.

"I play my best at all events, but the feeling here is impossible to describe".

"The nerves and adrenaline I feel on this court is impossible to compare. To win here again is something I can not describe", said Nadal.

"You are a great example and it's always been an honour to play against you".

"It's impossible to describe this moment".

Wawrinka, who had been on an 11-match winning streak on clay, was being hunted down mercilessly and his frustration boiled over as the Spaniard closed in on a two-set lead, the Swiss wrecking his racket frame after a missed forehand.

"It's hard to describe how I'm feeling; all I can say is "thank you". "I was trying to play better. Thank you for everything", said Nadal. So I hope that my knees hold up well and I can have the preparation that I really need and the preparation that I wanted. Toni presented his nephew with a replica of the Coupe des Mousquetaires trophy in what is his final French Open before handing over full-time to 1998 Paris champion Carlos Moya. His next hold was most notable for a sensational forehand victor down the line from a seemingly beaten Nadal that drew audible gasps from the crowd. He defeated the Swiss tennis ace 6-2, 6-3 and 6-1. It has been very special to me, and it's true that it is unprecedented. "For sure he's playing the best he's ever played", Wawrinka said.

Nadal is also only the third male player after Sampras and Rosewall to win a Grand Slam title in his teens, 20s and 30s.
