Rafael Nadal leads 6-2, 5-2 against Stan

The Latest Mattek-Sands Safarova win women's doubles

His clay-court prowess as unassailable as ever, Rafael Nadal won his record 10th French Open title by dominating 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 in the final Sunday.

Rafael Nadal has now won 10 French Open titles, the most titles at a single Grand Slam event of any player in history.

He claimed the Musketeers Cup without dropping a set in the tournament for the third time, having lost only 35 games en route to achieving what has been dubbed "La Decima".

Only Bjorn Borg, who conceded 32 on his way to the 1978 title, has been a more ruthless champion. "That's for sure. But not only here", said Wawrinka, who lost for the first time in four Grand Slam finals.

An emotional Rafael Nadal described his 10th French Open title as the ideal end to a flawless fortnight after he made history at Roland Garros on Sunday.

"The feeling I have here is impossible to describe". I just won the most important event of the year for me, so that's the only thing that matters today.

After one point Sunday, Wawrinka bent over, leaning one arm on his racket and resting the other on a knee. It was something special for me and I think for him, too.

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

French Open set for new women's champ
It's thanks to you that I fought for every point. "The US Open and Australian Open gives me some confidence", said Pliskova. After losing her crown on her 33rd unforced error , she walked off, briefly wagging her finger at the partisan home crowd.

While analysts assessed Nadal's history, his strokes and his long career before the match, Nadal said he didn't focus on the records.

2013-Became the first man with eight titles at the same grand slam tournament when he beat fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in the French Open final.

"Then I won Geneva and I reached the final of a grand slam".

After his success at Roland Garros, Nadal climbed to second in the rankings, cutting the gap on Andy Murray to just 2605 points. Roger Federer is still the consensus greatest of all time though, but the fact that the two of them are the only two guys to hoist major trophies makes the back half of this season that much interesting. He defeated the Swiss tennis ace 6-2, 6-3 and 6-1.

"The King of Clay" built a comfortable 3-0 lead early in the second set, before Wawrinka managed to snap his slide after holding serve in the fourth game.

Straw hats and fans were de rigueur for an expectant Court Philippe Chatrier as the final began with temperatures hovering around the 30 degrees Celcius mark - ideal conditions for Nadal's trademark monstrous topspin game.

Despite the Swiss' poor record against Nadal at Roland Garros, his form in 2017 has been near-impeccable and even though clay is his least favoured surface, he felt like the only man who could truly trouble the Spaniard on current form.

"He puts this doubt in your head when you play against him", Wawrinka said of Nadal.
