Rafael Nadal grabs his 10th title and a 15th Grand Slam victory after running over Stan Wawrinka in the French Open final.
The match played on Sunday, had Nadal emerged victorious with 6-2, 6-3, 6-1, making him the first man who won the title for record 10 times.
With his current victory, Nadal, is closely following Roger Federer with only three remaining Slams titles and this was a fantastic way to show his better fitness after he left Roland Garros a year ago, occasioned by a wrist injury.
This is his 22nd Grand Slam final in Paris, one which was characteristic in the Spaniard’s keeping of a clean sheet for a third time in a row.
Nadal has 35 losses and six of those were in the finals, when Roger Federer had four games to his advantage in the final in 2008.
He was supported by his uncle and coach, who is willing to quit at the end of the year.
Nadal, however got some praises from his conquered opponent, Wawrinka, who is on course for the fourth Grand Slam title.
He said of the Spaniard thus: “Rafa, I have nothing to say – you were too good,” said third seed Wawrinka.
“You are a great example and it’s always been an honour to play against you.”
