Rafael Nadal wins the French Open 6-2, 6-3, 6-1.

It is his 10th French Open title. 
...
TENNIS GOD. GOD OF TENNIS.

RAFAEL NADAL WINS THE FRENCH OPEN!!!!
...
Toni Nadal cracks a smile. Inside, there's probably elation.

CHAMPIONSHIP POINT.
...
Nadal sends some sort of mammoth serve in to Stan Wawrinka, and Wawrinka's errant backhand goes into the air. 

Goodnight, sweet prince. The King is in town.

5-1 Rafael Nadal and Wawrinka serves to stay in the championship...

...
One game away from La Decima. 
...
Former King of Spain Juan Carlos is watching the match. King of Spain watching King of Clay.
...
Stan Wawrinka, right now.
...
Backhand goes ... backward? Unfortunate and it's meant Nadal leads 4-1 in what appears now to be the final set. Surely this is over.
...
Advantage Nadal.
...
Wawrinka is down but he isn't out just yet. He caps off a stunning rally and then there's yet another one to follow. He was hoping to finish that off with a smash but he finds the net cord. 

From ad Wawrinka, we're back to egalite. Deuce.
...
Egalite. Deuce. Wawrinka almost held fairly well but Nadal wants to finish this off quick. 
...
Wawrinka can take solace in some Linkin Park right now:  "I tried so hard, and got so far...but in the end, it doesn't even matter..."
...
Wawrinka trying everything and then some but it is just not coming together. What do you even do when you're facing Relentless Rafa at this point? 
...
Game point and he flubs the backhand right into the net. He's trying everything but it is not working out. At all. 
...
30-30 in game 5 of set 3. And Wawrinka pulls out an ace.
...
Backhand slice. Scooped forehand. A huge one in fact. 

Should Wawrinka laugh or cry at this point? We really don't know.
...
Wawrinka trying some stuff and the sidewinding game is on. Rafa with a one-handed backhand and a run-up that's almost effortless. Smooth as butter. Or is butter as smooth as Rafa Nadal's hitting right now?
...
...
Jeu Nadal. Relentless. 

3-1 Nadal.
...
Almost at break point. Wawrinka's FH getting a bit better now but not enough. Wawrinka flubs a return and NAdal's in the driver's seat.
...
By the by.. forehand winners at nearly 100 mph? 99 to be exact, but clay forehand winners at nearly 100mph. 

That's Rafael Nadal for you.
...
6-1 6-1 6-1 6-3 6-0 6-3 6-1 6-4 6-1 6-1 6-4 6-3 6-0 6-1 6-0 6-1 6-2 6-2 6-2 2-0 6-3 6-4 6-0 6-2 6-3

Read that quickly.

That's Nadal's last 25 sets at the French Open. Not a tiebreaker in sight.
...
Nadal's record from two sets up to love is 165-1.

Does that seal it? Probably.
...
He holds to 30 with some fiery forehands. He doesn't look like he'll win it now, but he intends to fight through till the end.
...
Wawrinka's a fighter. Can't deny it can ya.
...
Powerful backhand but on that occasion, with no direction. It would've been a great one if it worked out. It did not. 

Goes right into the sidelines. 
...
Applause for the Wawrinka forehand. Nadal's the crowd darling but they can appreciate a good shot. A great cross-court forehand from Wawrinka takes him up 30-15.
...
'Jeu' to Nadal.

No 'joy' to Wawrinka.

Nadal holds to love as he runs into the net. If any of you were waiting on Wawrinka to win, a four-set match, I'm sorry. 
...
Wawrinka's broken straightaway in the third set. As much as watchers would love one extra set, I don't think it's on the cards here. Nadal is RIPPING apart Wawrinka's game and there are no apologies.

Wawrinka may be fresh off a comfort break but there is nothing comfortable about what's happening to him here.
...
Rafael Nadal wins the second set 6-3 and leads two sets to love.
...
Wawrinka's upset. Set Nadal 6-3.
...
That was a great rally, even if it didn't go Wawrinka's way. 3 points early on and I thought Nadal had it. Wawrinka making some impossible returns. 

Set point Nadal. Racquet smash time for Wawrinka. It's CRUMPLED. 
...
Nadal is sending Wawrinka from side to side like a foosball figurine at the moment. And to the Swiss' credit, he's chasing down those shots too. He nets that BH though.
...
Gosh, Wawrinka's really got some fighting spirit. Anyone else might have given up quite some time ago. 

He HOLDS with a fast serve and it's now at 3-5.

Nadal serves for the set.
...
Nadal races away to 30-0.

30-15.
...
SO close...and yet not enough. Stan Wawrinka's hitting appears to be getting harder and even more aggressive in this game - but it's not exactly helping him right now. Nadal is now spelled F L A W L E S S. Or is that the other way around?
...
Guhhhhh... we're as open-mouthed as you are right now. Rafa runs all over the court, slides down the line, and scoops it over the net. How do you even do that?

Races away to game point - and finishes off with an ace to hold to love. 

5-2. 


...
...
Only Nadal. That was a wild, wild return. And we don't think anyone not named Rafa Nadal could've done it.

Nevertheless, Wawrinka holds and staves off a double break. 

He trails 2-4.
...
NADAL you beauty. He takes the shot from ... OUTSIDE??? 

Yes he does.
...
That was ...not in by Hawkeye, but they don't use hawkeye here so that's moot. It's adjudged in. Gutsy serve!
...
He's trying a couple of different things now is Stan Wawrinka, and a couple are working. He's forcing Nadal to try some different things and he takes it to the brink, does the Swiss, but loses from there. He really needs to hold now.
...
He really is pushing himself into the game is Wawrinka, and he looked so close there, too! But a couple of errors off his backhand give Nadal the service hold... and a 4-1 lead.

This is really looking dire for Wawrinka here.
...
Oh no, he was doing so great too! Stan slices - into the net! 30-30
...
15-30 and Wawrinka is a couple of points away from a break back... 
...
Yup, he intends to be back in this even if he isn't fully there yet. A stunning forehand winner from Stan Wawrinka and it's a gutsy shot but it pays off. 
...
How do you spell resilience? W-A-W-R-I-N-K-A. He isn't out of the woods by a long long shot but he's in this for sure. 

He holds! 

1-3
...
Nadal deep in and Stan volleys well. Even if he doesn't look like he's winning today, he wants to fight for it. 

Some great serves from him and he's racing to a love hold. 
...
W:UE - 6:20 for Stan, 12:9 for Rafa. Now you know...
...
TWENTY. 20 unforced errors from Stan Wawrinka and 9 for Rafa here.
