In response, Wawrinka smashed his racket over his knees and received a warning for racket abuse. Or hit your head with it.

Wawrinka, the French Open champion in 2015 when Nadal lost to Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals, said the Spaniard had lived up to his expectations on Sunday. It's very emotional for me. "I think I was a little bit hesitating with my selection of shots". "You were too good".

"I am really happy to win here".

"From the beginning from my side, I didn't play my best tennis", Wawinka said.

"There is many things I can talk about 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", Wawrinka said.

Nadal is also only the third male player after Sampras and Rosewall to win a Grand Slam title in his teens, 20s and 30s.

Nadal's career title count now stands at 73, fifth on the all-time list behind Jimmy Connors (109), Ivan Lendl (94), Federer (91) and John McEnroe (77).

"Roger and Rafa, they are very good", said Wawrinka. I was trying to do something different.

"There is not much to talk about the match".

"If I feel healthy during Wimbledon, then probably I'm going to have my chances to play well". The Spaniard has completed La Decima in two other tournaments, winning his 10th title in both Monte Carlo and Barcelona in the run-up to this year's French Open. The third-ranked Swiss was coming off a title in Geneva, won his first five rounds at Roland Garros all in straight sets, and beat world No. 1 Andy Murray in a five-set semifinal.

His career record at Roland Garros reads 78 wins and just two losses.

Murray will have to defend 2,500 points and with Nadal having skipped the grass a year ago, Rafa is in prime position to take the lead. Telling Words: "For the first time, I cried after winning a match".

- Nine-times victor Nadal saves a break point to lead 2-1 against Wawrinka in the French Open final on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Fourth-seeded Rafael Nadal has won the opening set 6-2 in the French Open final against No. 3 Stan Wawrinka.

He struggled ion front of Nadal on Sunday.

PARIS -In Roland Garros exile for three years, Rafael Nadal reclaimed his French Open throne with a history-making 10th title, destroying Stan Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1.

Not only did Nadal win every set he played in the tournament, he dropped a total of only 35 games, the second fewest by any man on the way to any title at a major tournament with all matches being best-of-five-sets in the Open era, which dates to 1968.

The Swiss had never lost a final at a major, while Nadal has not lost in 10 Roland Garros finals.
