Incredible stats behind Nadal's 10th French Open

Incredible stats behind Nadal's 10th French Open

Telling Words: "I can't say I'm better than him".

Despite a 15-3 career record against Wawrinka, and an imperious run to the final over the last two weeks, Nadal still had questions to answer heading into the final.

Just as remarkable as Rafael Nadal's unprecedented total of 10 French Open championships is that he is 10-0 in finals at Roland Garros.

Once a very promising soccer player, Nadal has long favored the No. 9, traditionally worn by strikers. When he couldn't hit through Nadal, a task bordering on impossible, he didn't quite have the patience to buckle down and work his way out of the jam he was getting himself into. I love grass, everybody knows, and it's a surface that I really enjoyed a lot playing there. "I am happy. I am enjoying every week, and I want to continue and I gonna try to keep working hard to try to enjoy more handsome weeks".

Spain's Rafael Nadal celebrates with the trophy after winning the final against Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka.

French Open men's champion Rafael Nadal has moved up two spots to No. 2 in the ATP rankings, his highest placing since October 2014.

"He's playing the best he's ever played".

"For me, every Roland Garros has been very important. His level of play is unbelievable".

Wawrinka insisted a five-set semifinal win Friday over No. 1-ranked Andy Murray did not take anything out of him physically.

The Spaniard becomes the first man to reach double figures at a single Slam and, if he continues to play like this, then Margaret Court's all-time record of 11 Australian Open titles looks certain to fall.

Ferrari Grabs One-Two Victory In Monaco
But Hamilton remains upbeat ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix in a fortnight's time. In terms of looking for, I don't know if we will need more hard weekends or not.

The fact that he had to wait three years to claim a 15th major title made it all the sweeter - as did the fact that uncle Toni - his coach since he was six - handed him the Coupe des Mousquetaires in an emotional ceremony.

Nadal has won Wimbledon twice but not since 2010 when he beat Tomas Berdych.

Key Stat: Nadal was 31-0 for his career until losing to Soderling in the fourth round in 2009.

Nadal did not err against the world number seven, taking the title without dropping a set for the second time after a 6-4 6-2 6-4 win in the final. I have been doing this for years, and I'm still excited to do it.

"In 2005, I thought in 2017 I'd be fishing on my boat in Majorca", Nadal said. "If that happens, why not?" "The nerves, the adrenaline, I feel on the court are impossible to compare to another feeling".

Ever modest, Nadal declared he'd played the "perfect Roland Garros", having not conceded a set.

A reporter wanted to know whether, during that time, Nadal harbored any doubts about returning to the heights of his sport.

He clearly stepped up his game in the second game of the second, adopting a more aggressive stance on the baseline and dictating proceedings.

Former Wimbledon champion Pat Cash: "I'm totally shocked to see him do it".
