Rafael Nadal outclasses Stan Wawrinka to win 10th French Open title

Rafael Nadal outclasses Stan Wawrinka to win 10th French Open title”

As the sporting world paid their tributes to the 31-year-old, one tribute stood out among the rest, from his historic rival, Federer. He apologized to tournament organizers and British fans. "Rafa could arrive here (at Roland Garros) next year in May with 18".

"Today was a very important day for me".

"Back in November, when we were together, I told him he needed to get his forehand back, to improve a bit his serve, to put on a champion's face again", said Uncle Toni, gripping his chin for emphasis, "and to become the No. 1 on clay again".

"The reality is I have not had any". When the moment came to take the microphone and speak to the crowd, Nadal was visibly, and understandably emotional. This is the first time Nadal has won in Paris without dropping a set.

"For sure he's playing the best he's ever played".

Milos Raonic, who reached the final at Queen's and Wimbledon a year ago losing to Murray in both finals is a strong contender for the title of Queen's.

"I don't know. I can not say (yes); I can not say not". However, the most important thing is being one of the top four seeds (especially with Roger Federer's seed now unknown) and it is unlikely he loses that distinction.

At that time, and with his ranking sliding, his grand slam-winning days seemed to be numbered. "I like playing on grass and have been in five finals, remember that".

Eighteen-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has heaped praise on Spanish maestro Rafael Nadal by describing him as an "incredible" player after the latter recorded his 10th French Open title victory.

On Sunday, Rafael Nadal clung to the silver trophy awarded to the champion of the French Open, and tears welled up in his eyes. After 31 consecutive victories at the French Open since his debut and four titles, Nadal lost his first match in the French Open against Swedish player Robin Soderling in the fourth round of the tournament in 2009.

The Spaniard, who won at Queen's in 2008, said: "I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able play Queen's next week". It's true that after 2012 what happened with my knees, it has been tougher and tougher to compete on grass.

"I love grass, everybody knows, and it's a surface that I really enjoyed a lot playing on".
