PARIS: Rafael Nadal wins a record-breaking 10th French Open title on Sunday. Defeating Stan Wawrinka is a brutally one-sided final which even earned the Spaniard a 15th Grand Slam crown.
Nadal a 31 year old player triumphed 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 and become the first man in the history to win the same major 10 times.
His collection of Slams now stands just three behind great rival Roger Federer, a staggering statistic coming just a year after he quit Roland Garros with a wrist injury.
Playing in his 22nd Grand Slam final, Nadal triumphed in Paris without dropping a set for a third time.
He even lost just 35 games in total and only six in the final, his most comprehensive victory since allowing Roger Federer four games in the 2008 final.
“It’s really incredible. To win La Decima is very, very special,” said Nadal.
“I am really very emotional and the feeling I have is impossible to describe. It is difficult to compare your game with other tournaments but the nerves and adrenaline I feel, it’s like no other place.”
