The world witnessed one of the most beautiful exploits in the history of the sport during the French Open final held on 11th June 2017. Rafael Nadal, who had always been a down to earth idol, won his 10th French Open final against a tough opponent, Stan Wawrinka, in 2 hours 5 minutes long match.
After an anxious start, Nadal crumpled his opponent with ease, by maintaining a significant lead of 6-2, 6-3, 6-1, in all the three straight sets. It has become a great sporting achievement, for ages, as no other mens tennis player has ever won more than seven single titles at the same Grand Slam event. He lost only 35 games this time, the second fewest by an Open-era mens champion at a Grand Slam event, first being Bjorn Borg who let go only 32 games en route to the 1978 French Open title.
Sundays victory has finally put an end his three-year-old wait for major titles. He had won his last French Open in 2014. His pace decelerated due to injuries as well as due to the setbacks in his confidence. Last year, he was forced to withdraw from his favorite tournament, Roland Garros, after two rounds because of his wrist injury.
This tournament was very important to him as he himself made it clear that there are only a few more years left for him to succeed there. An emotional Nadal was seen collapsing onto the court when Wawrinka sent a backhand into the net. Later he was seen cuddling the famous trophy like a baby.
Margaret Court is the lone other tennis player to reach double digits at the same major with 11 titles. Nadal's form certainly ensures that he has plenty of good tennis left in him but he would want those injuries to stay away. Let us wait and see if he can manage to break the record of Margaret Court which she achieved at the Australian Open in the 1960s and 70s.
