I thought I was done, Rafael Nadal reveals his hidden thought

I thought I was done, Rafael Nadal reveals his hidden thought

Or hit your head with it. Nadal became the first person to take 10 championships at the same Grand Slam event. When you haven't been playing loads over four, four-and-a-half hours, that can catch up to you a little bit.

"I think today, if you play Rafa, if you're not completely free with what you think and what you're gonna do and not completely relaxed the way you're gonna play, you have no chance".

"I have doubts every day but that's good as it makes me work hard with more intensity", he said.

With the win, Nadal also extended his head-to-head lead over Wawrinka to a stellar 16-3, and improves to a ideal 10-0 in French finals.

"I never agreed with people who said Rafa should stop working with Toni (Nadal), but having his friend Carlos there and Francisco Roig means that they talk to Toni and give some new ideas and then Rafa trusts the plan". "That's for sure", said Wawrinka, who had won 11 matches in a row on clay.

"I only have myself to blame for that, for the way I played coming into the tournament".

The season-opening Australian Open and season-ending US Open are played on hardcourts while the French Open is on clay and Wimbledon is contested on grass.

Deputy AG Rosenstein: Special counsel will have 'full independence' for Russia probe
Considering that Rosenstein appointed Mueller, and without that "good cause", it seems likely that Rosenstein would resign. And deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said simply: "Chris speaks for himself".

"But there is not much to talk about the match". For me, the nerves, the adrenaline that I feel when I play in this court is impossible to compare to another feeling.

Here are five unbelievable things you need to know about Rafa's 2017 French Open win.

But the song remained the same, Nadal taking the set in the ninth game, just moments after Wawrinka, who knocked out World No 1 Andy Murray in the semis, had destroyed a racquet in utter frustration.

French Open champion Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the Queen's Club tournament, a warmup event for Wimbledon, saying he needs to rest.

And the Swiss player is hoping to take that form into the grass-court season.

However, despite boasting a 15-3 head-to-head superiority over 32-year-old Wawrinka, the oldest man in the Paris final in 44 years, Nadal is wary of complacency. "That's the most important thing for me". That's big for me but I will need a few days to really see that."Meanwhile, Wawrinka has added American Paul Annacone to his coaching team for the upcoming grasscourt season, the world number three announced".

His last Grand Slam title before this year's Roland Garros came in Paris in 2014 and he admitted that there were doubts over whether or not he'd recover his former powers.
