There is only one king of the clay, as the clay season comes to an end. After winning the titles in Monte Carlo and Barcelona for the tenth time in his career, Rafael Nadal did it in the french open as well.

"La Decima"

Rafael Nadal beat Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1 in the French Open final after two hours of play. Everything was pretty clear after just six games in the first set, when Rafa broke Wawrinka's serve and won seven games in a row.

The Swiss had only one break point in the entire match and he didn't convert it. Nadal's offensive play surprised Wawrinka, as he couldn't find his rhythm with the shots. He was completely helpless in this match.

This was Nadal's tenth French Open title, as he claimed the famous "La Decima", the thing that nobody has done before. Also, this title brings Nadal his 15th Grand Slam of his career, as he now stands alone on the second place of the all time Grand Slam winners.

And his overall record in the French Open is just too impressive (79-2).

Stanislas Wawrinka played his second French Open final and fourth overall at Grand Slams. This was his first loss in the finals. The Swiss retains the third place on the ATP list, while Nadal moves up to the second spot.
