NADAL HOPPING ONTO COUNTER TOP FOR PHOTO SHOOT WITH TROPHY 4. VARIOUS OF NADAL POSING WITH TROPHY 5. REPORTERS 6. NADAL LEAVING STORY: Spain's Rafael Nadal posed with his trophy on a barge cruising along the Seine river in Pairs on Monday (June 12) after winning his tenth French Open title. Claycourt king Rafa regained his Roland Garros throne after two years in exile with a brutal 6-2 6-3 6-1 mauling of Swiss Stan Wawrinka to complete 'La Decima' on Sunday (June 11). This title, a record 10th at a single grand slam in the professional era, was arguably the most impressive of his 15 majors, though, as it arrived three injury-plagued years after the last one when he beat Novak Djokovic in 2014. The fourth seed, who has only lost two matches at Roland Garros since his debut in 2005, is now just one short of Margaret Court's all-time record of 11 titles at a single grand slam.
