Spain's Rafael Nadal made history by winning a record 10th French Open title with victory over Stan Wawrinka in the Paris final.
This year Tennis Star Rafael Nadal heads into the French Open as the strong favourite to take the crown and triumph over all other contenders. The Spaniard aims for an almost impossible 10th Roland Garros crown. He was champion in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, Nadal now targets to take his tenth French Open title even as he has been rejuvenated in 2017.
Rafael Nadal has history in his sights at Roland-Garros this year. Victory in Paris would see him win his 15th Grand Slam, lifting him above Pete Sampras and behind only Roger Federer on the list of all-time singles titles. But it would also importantly mean something else: La Decima. It is a feat never before achieved in the men’s game; a level of dominance to rival Margaret Court’s eleven Australian Open titles.
