Nadal wins record 10th French Open title

And I finished the year being World No. 1, winning here (in Paris), winning the US Open.

"It's a feeling that's impossible to describe", Nadal was quoted as saying by French Open website.

Defeat by Austria's Dominic Thiem in Rome was a minor blip as Nadal went on to enjoy total domination at Roland Garros, emulating his 2008 and 2010 titles when he did not drop a set.

Nadal's ascendency to his 10th French Open title was never in doubt after the first serve of the match.

Wawrinka was trying to win his second Roland Garros title in three years but was blown away. "This is the most important event of my career". In just three sets, Nadal played his way into history, becoming the only person to win 10 titles at the same venue in the Open era. I'm very emotional. I try my best in all the events but the feeling I have here is impossible to describe. He now trails only Roger Federer (18) for most career Grand Slams in men's tennis.

The third set was simply clinical from Nadal.

The final began with temperatures hovering around the 30 degrees Celcius mark -- ideal conditions for Nadal's trademark monstrous topspin game.

"Wawrinka is a very unsafe opponent, so my mentality was that I can not give him the chance to be back on the match", he added.

It was also his first major since winning the 2014 French Open, and the third time he's triumphed in Paris without dropping a set.

"There is nothing to say about today, you were too good".

"It's truly wonderful", he said in French. I don't know if I will ever get to meet the player who will do better than I did. He won all 12 service games, saving the lone break point he faced, and made a mere 12 unforced errors.

"I feel that I have been playing well since the start of this season and it has been very special".

It seems rather likely that the 18-time Grand Slam champion will win Wimbledon - he has geared his entire year towards it after all - but Nadal will be the real victor in terms of the rankings.

"You are a great example and it's always been an honour to play against you". Not helped by some outrageous stroke making from Nadal, he quickly found himself down 3-0. "I won all the matches with unbelievable results".

Spain's Rafael Nadal clinched a record 10th French Open title on Sunday, crushing Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka in a brutally one-sided final.

Nadal took the set in the ninth game, just moments after Wawrinka had destroyed a racket in utter frustration.

The victory capped what could rightly be seen as Nadal's most dominant performance at Roland Garros.

Should he pull the trigger early or trade blows with the best clay-court player of all time?
