Rafael Nadal Makes History With 10th French Open Title

With a 10th title in Paris under his belt, the exploits of a remarkable sporting icon have been saluted by those operating in football circles.

Only Australia's Margaret Court has more victories at a Grand Slam tournament, with 11 Australian Open women's singles wins between 1960 and 1973. It marked another near-perfect performance in his favorite event and on his favorite surface.

"It was hard", said Nadal's uncle and coach, Toni.

Rafael Nadal has been given a replica of the French Open trophy to mark his 10 titles at Roland Garros. Hard to compare to other places.

"The feeling I have here is impossible to describe. It's the most important event in my career without a doubt". His Grand Slam title count now sits at 15, just three shy of current record holder Roger Federer.

1 - Nadal's 6-0 6-1 6-0 victory over Nikoloz Basilashvili in round three was the first time he has only lost one game in a match at Roland Garros.

On Sunday, he will be playing in his 22nd Grand Slam final.

Nadal stamped his authority on the match from the word go, which set the tone for his dominance. "Something really special and just congrats for your career and all your team". Stan Wawrinka said Rafael Nadal was back at the peak of his powers after storming to an incredible 10th French Open title yesterday. It is hard to compare this tournament to any other one. "The nerves, the adrenaline, I feel on the court are impossible to compare to another feeling. There are many things I can talk about in the game, about what I did, about what he was doing, that I should have done or tried differently, but in the end of the day, I think it's quite clear the score". "That's for sure. But not only here", said Wawrinka, who lost for the first time in four Grand Slam finals. Wawrinka had a game plan coming in.

Short Term Technical Outlook: Micron Technology, Inc. (MU), Sears Canada Inc. (SRSC)
AmeriGas Partners LP had 9 analyst reports since August 20, 2015 according to SRatingsIntel. (NASDAQ:MU) on Tuesday, May 30. Sears Canada Inc. (SRSC) exchanged hands at an unexpectedly high level of 0.27 million shares over the course of the day.

"What he did is so big for the sport".

Nothing could extinguish Nadal's fire though and he surged two breaks ahead in the third set despite the best efforts of Wawrinka to try and extend the contest.

"He's an fantastic fighter". She is the lone other tennis player to reach double digits at the same major. He creates doubts that you can not have if you want to beat him.

"It's a tough loss".

"But that's clearly his best he ever play".

Rafael Nadal has always been known as the "King of Clay", and no performance exemplified that more than his dominant victory over Stan Wawrinka on Sunday in the French Open final. But I already won two Roland Garros' without losing a set before this one - 2008, 2010, I didn't lose a set.

The Spaniard did not waste any time in wrapping up the second set as he finished Wawrinka off in 45 minutes.

Nadal's opponent in today's match Stan Wawrinka had won the crown in 2014.
