Deflated Wawrinka says he was too hesitant in French Open final

Pammachio Corsino | 12 Giugno, 2017, 07:58

Wawrinka described facing Nadal in a final on clay as probably the biggest challenge in tennis and the 2015 champion was tormented throughout a one-sided final, smashing his racket in a rage as he was totally outclassed in a one-sided contest that was over in just two hours and five minutes.

Another one can now be added to the list - and it is one for the ages - after the Spaniard crushed Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1 to become the first man to win the same grand slam on 10 occasions.

Rafael Nadal falls to the court after winning his 10th French Open title.

His world ranking slipped as low as 10 in 2015 and his 2016 French Open was ended prematurely after the second round by a wrist injury.

Wawrinka's memorable semifinal win over world No. 1 Andy Murray held a promise of a much closer final.

1968 - The Roland Garros is the first Grand Slam to become an open tournament. Federer, Romania's Ilie Nastase and Australia's Ken Rosewall are the only other players to win a major without dropping a set - all three have managed the feat once.

It is his first Grand Slam since he won the 2014 French Open.

But I had better sensations when I played Basilashvili, for example.

Posting his 15th major victory, and moving into outright second place behind Roger Federer (18) for the most major titles, the Spanish bull completed a phenomenal tournament with a devastating final display.

All those years ago, it was Toni's decision to turn Nadal from a right-hander - his dominant hand outside of tennis - to a lefty.


Many questioned whether Rafael Nadal was a spent force amid injury woes and a loss of form, but the legendary Spaniard domineeringly demonstrated why he is one of the sporting greats by winning the French Open to make history on Sunday.

"Guga" also won at Roland Garros in 2000 and 2001, was ranked No. 1, and retired in 2008 with 20 singles titles.

Mattek-Sands and Safarova were also champions at this year's Australian Open.

Nadal was irresistible nearly from the off on Sunday, showing the kind of form that had seen him breeze through to the final while dropping just 29 games.

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.

Nadal had played down La Decima.

Nadal's win-loss record at the French Open, which he won on debut in 2005, now stands at a staggering 79-2. "If you're not completely free. you don't want him to take the lead and play even more freely", said Wawrinka, who became U.S. Open champion a year ago. "And on clay especially, because the way he's moving, it's even more hard".

"It has been a while since I played a good Wimbledon and after what happened with my knees in 2012 it has been tougher and tougher to compete on grass", he said.

Nadal lost just 35 games across the fortnight as he swept to the title in familiar style, and concede just one solitary break point to Wawrinka in the final, which he duly defended.
