Nadal demolished Stan Wawrinka and won record 10th French Open title

Vastavam web: On Sunday Nadal demolished Stan Wawrinka in French Open one-sided final and earned the 10th French Open title. Nadal, 31, triumphed 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 to become the first man in history to win the same major 10 times.His collection of Slams now stands just three behind great rival Roger Federer, a staggering statistic coming just a year after he quit Roland Garros with a wrist injury.He also lost just 35 games in total and only six in the final, his most comprehensive victory since allowing Roger Federer four games in the 2008 final.
Nadal was joined on the presentation by his uncle Toni, his coach since boyhood, who is stepping down at the end of the year.”Without my uncle I would not have won 10 trophies,” said Nadal who will rise to two in the world rankings on Monday.It was the 22nd Slam finale for Nadal; just the fourth for Wawrinka, the oldest man in the championship match in 44 years.Sunday was also the first time since 1969 that the Roland Garros final had featured two men over 30.The 32-year-old couldn’t take it and it proved to be the only break point he earned all afternoon.
Nadal was unable to convert four break points in the fourth game.No matter as he broke through for 4-2 and then went to set point in the eighth game after a relentless forehand barrage sapped the will out of Wawrinka.Nadal forced Wawrinka into another forehand error to break for 2-0 in the second set before the Swiss halted a run of seven games lost with a hold for 1-3.But the song remained the same, Nadal taking the set in the ninth game, just moments after Wawrinka, who knocked out world number one Andy Murray in the semis, had destroyed a racquet in utter frustration.
