Nadal owns 53 clay trophies after adding his tenth at Roland Garros to the 10 he won at both Monte Carlo and Barcelona over the last three months.

Nadal lost just 35 games across the fortnight as he swept to the title in familiar style, and concede just one solitary break point to Wawrinka in the final, which he duly defended.

Rafael Nadal plays a forehand during his dominant French Open final win.

5 - Nadal is one of a quintet of men to win a career Grand Slam in the Open Era.

The 31-year-old Nadal moved into solo second on the all-time major titles list, breaking a tie with Pete Sampras for second place and behind only Roger Federer's 18.

"Without my uncle I would not have won 10 trophies", said Nadal who will rise to two in the world rankings on Monday.

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

Nadal hadn't dropped a set the entire tournament, and he continued that ideal streak on Sunday.

He said: "It has been a while since I played a very good Wimbledon".

At 32, he was trying to become the oldest French Open victor since Andres Gimeno in 1972.

"It's hard to compare with other tournaments but the nerves and adrenaline I feel, it's like no other place".

- Nadal broke Wawrinka to take a 4-2 lead in the first set after 34 minutes of play. His Grand Slam title count now sits at 15, just three shy of current record holder Roger Federer.

He will go after Floyd Mayweather and he will try to knock him out". "On four or five days ( notice ), he'll fight anyone". Boxing champion turned promoter De La Hoya said a fight between the two would be an embarrassment for the sport of boxing.

Third seed Wawrinka, the 2015 victor, struggled for the majority of the match, committing 29 unforced errors to suffer his first grand slam final defeat in four appearances. "The doubts, I think, are good, because the doubts give you the possibility to work with more intensity, with more humility, and accepting that you need to keep working hard to improve things", he told a post-match news conference.

Key Stat: This remains Federer's most lopsided loss in 365 career Grand Slam matches.

"I was trying to find solution", Wawrinka said. He becomes the third player to ever win a Slam in his teens, 20s and 30s.

Claycourt master Rafael Nadal was too hot to handle as he crushed Swiss third seed Stan Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1 to claim a record-extending 10th French Open title. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that no other man holds ten titles at any tournament, and now Nadal does at three different tournaments.

Nothing could extinguish Nadal's fire though and he surged two breaks ahead in the third set despite the best efforts of Wawrinka to try and extend the contest.

Telling Words: "I played at the maximum of my power, my strength, and my capability, but Rafa was the best player". Nadal beat the challenger from Switzerland 6-2, 6-3, 4-1.
