Rafael Nadal: Winning 10 Is A Feeling That’s Impossible To Describe

by Tom Gainey | June 11th, 2017, 2:47 pm

Twelve years after first hoisting the French Open trophy, Rafael Nadal has done it again, winning a 10th title at Roland Garros by crushing Stan Wawrinka 62, 63, 61 in the Sunday final.

“It’s a feeling that’s impossible to describe,” Nadal said. “For me the nerves and the adrenaline I feel when I play on this court is impossible to compare to another court. It is the most important event in my career, to win again here is impossible to describe.”

Nadal is now a perfect 10-0 in the French Open final where no one has ever even pushed him to five sets.

Nadal becomes the first man to reach 10 Grand Slam titles at a single event ever and the first to do it in the Open Era.

Rafael Nadal 10 French Open
Roger Federer 7 Wimbledon
Pete Sampras 7 Wimbledon
Bjorn Borg 6 French Open
Novak Djokovic 6 Australian Open

Slacker ;-) ….

Daniel Says:

He must be so happy and relived, similar to how Federer was in AO this year.

Also he joins the 30+ yld Slam winners club. Next ones to join them (Fed, Nadal and Wawa) of active players is Murray and Djoko. Remains to be seen if they will.
