'Amazing' Nadal better than ever, says Wawrinka

Rafael Nadal demolished Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1 to claim his 10 title at the French Open.

Top seeds Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova won their fifth Grand Slam women's doubles title on Sunday at Roland Garros, putting them halfway to a calendar Slam.

Having beaten world number one Andy Murray with a majestic display of power in the semi-final, third-seed Wawrinka arrived full of confidence as, at 32, he tried to become the oldest French Open victor since Andres Gimeno in 1972. It has been an honour for me to play against you in a second grand slam final. But the thing that I am more proud of in my career probably is 2013. "But the feeling I have here is impossible to describe and hard to compare to another place".

"I'm a little emotional,"Nadal said before getting to clamp his jaws on La Coupe des Mousquetaires".

"I think since the beginning of the year, you can see he's playing more aggressive, staying more close from the line".

Spanish Tennis star Rafael Nadal on Sunday clinched the French Open title for the tenth time in his career.

His collection of Slams now stands just three behind great rival Roger Federer, an incredible statistic coming just a year after he quit Roland Garros with a wrist injury. It will always be in my heart.

"For sure he's playing the best he's ever played, not only here", Wawrinka said. But the 2015 champion could not convert it and it proved to be the only break point he earned all afternoon.

The only time Wawrinka matched Nadal's strokes was in the early part of the first set in when he held the first two service games and had a break point in the third game. He broke Wawrinka multiple times and made short work of him, dropping only a single game over the course of the set. Regardless of an epic four-and-a-half hour long semi-final against Andy Murray on Friday, Wawrinka played down the physical effects of such a long match. From the opening serve, the win was nearly never in doubt for the 31-year-old Spaniard, who now has a record 10 French Open victories to his name. Nadal lost a grand total of 35 games throughout the tournament, the second fewest by any man at any major in the best-of-five-set Open Era (six 1968). One, because I play against him, and he puts this doubt in your head when you play against him because he's playing so well.

"What you are doing in tennis is unbelievable".
