Rafael Nadal did it again.
Nadal beat Stan Wawrinka in the final of the French Open, winning in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3, 6-1.
Here is match point:
By winning the French Open, Nadal has staked a claim as the most dominating tennis player ever at a single Grand Slam. Nadal is the first player ever, men or women, to win one Grand Slam ten times. He was tied with Martina Navratilova, who won Wimbledon nine times.
Nadal now also has a jaw-dropping 79-2 career record at Roland-Garros, including 20-0 in semifinals and finals.
This was also arguably his most dominating performance at the French Open and it comes at age 31. Nadal lost just 35 games in the tournament, his fewest ever by six games.
