Rafael Nadal Wins Historic 10th French Open Title

Bethanie Mattek Sands of the U.S. left and Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic celebrate winning women's doubles final match against Australia's Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua in two sets 6-2 6-1 at the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland

That's for sure. But I will need few days to really see that, because it's tough to describe the feeling of losing a Grand Slam final.' He also spoke more detailled about Nadal and said: 'That's something tough to describe when you just say you won 10 French Open.

Call it a ideal 10. Other than a quarter-final exit in the Italian Open, the new world no.2 has won ever other clay court tournament this year (Monte Carlo Master, Barcelona Open and Madrid Open) and if he can continue this form for the rest of the year he could definitely move up to the no.1 spot.

"The nerves, the adrenaline that I feel when I play in this court is impossible to compare. It's impossible to compare it to another place", Nadal said.

"It's hard to compare with other tournaments but the nerves and adrenaline I feel, it's like no other place".

"But the thing that I am more proud of in my career probably is 2013".

A worn out Wawrinka put up a valiant fight-the Swiss beat Andy Murray in a match that lasted more than four-and-a-half hours in the semi-finals-but there is likely no player in the world who could have bettered the Spanish clay-court master in peak form on Sunday.

Nadal grasped his second match point as he led 5-1, 40-30 in the third set to finish his flawless fortnight performance at Roland Garros. Thereafter it was all one-way as Nadal won five straight games and set 6-2. His shots didn't have their usual verve, his legs their usual spring.

That September, he was crowned US Open champion for the second time in his career following a four-set win over Djokovic. Later, he spiked that piece of equipment, then mangled it, breaking it over his knee. Wawrinka at least forced Nadal to serve out the set but that proved to be no problem, with the Swiss destroying his racket when he missed a forehand. On this day, he was terrific.

Nadal continued with his relentless hitting in the third set, either scoring winners or forcing errors from Wawrinka.

When it ended, Nadal dropped to his back on the clay, then rose and briefly pulled his blue shirt over his face. 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. Now he is 31, the shorts are shorter, the hair more closely cropped, the shirt has sleeves. But his game? Somehow, better. Last year, he withdrew ahead of his third-round match against compatriot Marcel Granollers with a wrist injury.

Wawrinka, who may have been feeling the effects of an epic semi-final against Andy Murray, started slowly and could not get into the match.

The 36-year-old believes Nadal can keep dominating for the rest of the season.

Wawrinka had been riding a 10-match winning streak before he ran into Nadal.
