Rafael Nadal wins record 10th French Open title

Down a set and at 5-all in the second, Nadal took 20 of 26 points and five games in a row. With this win, the Spaniard now has 10 career French Open titles, the most of any player in the Open era.

Wawrinka won the title in Geneva on the eve of Roland Garros, an important win for his confidence after a poor clay-court season.

Nadal becomes the third man to win a Grand Slam title in his teens, his 20s and his 30s, following Ken Rosewall and Sampras, and appears capable of adding more.

He extended his record at Roland Garros to 79 wins and two losses since his first victory in 2005, the only defeats coming against Robin Soderling in 2009 and Novak Djokovic in 2014.

Annabel Croft, former British number one: Huge congratulations to Rafael Nadal winning his 10th Roland Garros title!

Remember the usual E3 disclaimer though, that any screenshot or supposed in-game image could quite easily be a fake. The sequel to one of my favorite recent games, Ori and the Blind Forest , looks as handsome and sad as expected.

Nadal came into the final on the back of a thumping semifinal win over Dominic Theim. Roger Federer holds the record of having won 18 Majors. He is still yet to drop a set, and turned it on in the third set of his semi-final, playing possibly his best tennis of the tournament yet.

Nadal acknowledged afterward that he dealt with a real case of jitters while he waited for the final to resume Monday after it was suspended in the fourth set because of rain Sunday night. "I am very emotional".

"But I will need few days to really see that, because it's tough to describe the feeling of losing a Grand Slam final". "The nerves, the adrenaline, I feel on the court are impossible to compare to another feeling". But if I have pain on my knees I know it is nearly impossible and my chances are not there.

"I don't know if I will ever get to meet the player who will do better than I did". He couldn't bring himself to watch much of the rest of the 2016 French Open, he said, other than some doubles matches involving a good pal, and the singles final. "You are always going to be in my heart".

Fourth-seeded Rafael Nadal of Spain is facing No. 3 Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland on Court Philippe Chatrier. "You were too good", Wawrinka acknowledged. 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. Previous year he withdrew from a third-round match with a wrist injury.

Trump fundraiser for NJ congressman nets more than $800000
MacArthur's New Jersey congressional district near the suburbs of Philadelphia is expected to be competitive in 2018. With that, enough Republicans voted to pass the bill, and now the Senate is working on its own version.

This was the first Roland Garros final between two players aged 30 and over since 1969, when 30-year-old Rod Laver defeated 34-year-old Ken Rosewall.

Wawrinka almost scored an early break on Nadal's second service game.

From there, it was all downhill.

Nadal saved all eight break points he faced. Nadal followed that with an easy hold and broke again on a long forehand to seal a 41-minute opening set.

Wawrinka - with a seemingly smile of resignation on his face - implored the crowd to get behind him when he delicately sent a chipped backhand past Nadal in the fifth game of the third. "He won his 10th French Open today, so that's something huge, also".

The White House Can't Decide How to Attack James Comey
Preet Bharara (buh-RAH'-ruh) tells ABC's "This Week" that he thinks Trump was trying to "cultivate some kind of relationship" with him.

The Spaniard then held to love and, having pushed hard for another break, served out the second set after winning a 13-shot rally and inviting another of couple of mistakes from a tired opponent who obliterated his racket in sheer frustration.
