Rafael Nadal made history when he defeated Stan Wawrinka to lift his 10th French Open title in Paris.

The 31-year old Spaniard won the game in straight sets 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 to win his 15th major title. The Swiss opponent stood no chance against Nadal who was widely expected to win the game.
Nadal is now the first person, in the Open Era – from when pro stars can compete with amateurs – to have lifted a Grand Slam tournament title ten times. He moves ahead of Pete Sampras on the list of all-time Grand Slam winners but he is behind Roger Federer. Federer defeated him to win his 18th title in Australia early this year and he remains in top shape to possibly add another. This means Nadal would need to make quite a chase to topple the Swiss.
In the history of the game, only Australian Margaret Court has more title in a single Grand Slam tournament. Court holds a record 11 wins at the Australian Open, which she won between 1960 and 1973. Well, Nadal can equal that record if he stays fit next year and can possible break it before he retires.
With the achievement, Nadal is arguably the best player in the clay court tennis history. His record at Roland Garrosstands at 79 wins and two losses since his first title at the age of 19 in 2005. The losses were against Robin Soderling in 2009 and Novak Djokovic in 2015.
He was tied with Martina Navratilova on nine Grand Slam titles at a tournament but was above Roger Federer and Pete Sampras in a group of six men to have won a Grand Slam seven times. He won five straight French Open titles from 2010 to 2014 but is winning his first since 2014. Will this be another set of straight victories at Roland Garros?
