  1. Au revoir!

    Rafa Nadal

    One suspects that pose might be how Rafa Nadal will be sleeping tonight. He won't want to let the Coupe des Mousquetaires go.

    He's still clutching it as he signs tens of autographs inside Chatrier, and then poses with all the ball boys and ball girls in a picture that they will all cherish until they are grey and old.

    While Rafa celebrates long into the Parisian night, it is time for us to say goodbye. Sad face.

    Thanks for your company over the past fortnight. And remember: we're only three weeks from the next Slam. Wimbledon.

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    And Nadal only lost 35 games in the whole tournament. Leading to this humorous Tweet from Andy Roddick...

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Some of these stats are ridiculous.

    Nadal only faced one break point today. He didn't lose it.

    He only made one unforced error in that final set.

    He won 83% of the points on his first serve.

    Unplayable.

  4. Nadal wins 10th French Open title

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Only two men have ever beaten Rafa Nadal in his 81 matches at Roland Garros. Here's one of them...

  6. Post update

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Nadal's thanks continue...

    He says on court: "Thank you to my friends, family and team. All the people who come from all around the world for the final."

    And he has a word for uncle Toni, his coach, too...

    "My uncle's been with me since three years old. We've worked a lot and without him I would not have 10 trophies.

    "One last thing, for me playing on this court I feel the support. I love you people more than any other."

  7. 'This is so special'

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Nadal speaking after receiving the French Open trophy: "First of all Stan, congrats on a great career in last couple of years. Well done, sorry for today. You've had an unbelievable two weeks. I wish you the best for the rest of the season, keep going.

    "It's difficult to talk today but the only thing I can say is thank you. For me to be here for many years is difficult to describe. I come back and see people I have a good relationship with and it's very special.

    "It's difficult for me to compare this to any other event. You are always going to be in my heart."

  8. 10 trophies and counting?

    Mariano Puerta & Rafael Nadal

    I can recall people saying when he beat Mariano Puerta back in 2005, aged 19, that Nadal could win 10 of these. He was that good that it made sense, but surely form, fitness or emerging rivals would derail him at some stage. Well, they have all played a part, which makes it all the more remarkable that he is holding the Coupe de Mousquetaires for a 10th time. And more dominant than ever. Don't rule out number 11. Or 12.

    Rafael Nadal

    Emre: Big congrats to Rafael Nadal for breaking the record and winning the French Open a 10th time in his career.

    Fahad Khan: Nadal is back. With Murray and Djokovic struggling, expect Nadal to put on a serious challenge for Wimbledon.

  10. Nadal wins his 10th French Open

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Rafa picks up the microphone again, the end of every sentence being met with rapturous applause.

    He begins by thanking all the Roland Garros staff, then attention turns to Uncle Toni. "Without him I would not have won 10 trophies."

    Full quotes on the way...

    Rafael Nadal

    Here's Uncle Toni! The man who has been behind every step of Rafa's success gets his chance for a special moment with his nephew, walking out onto Chatrier on his final shift with Team Nadal before calling it a day. The pair embrace. Aahh.

    Then Rafa nearly drops the trophy! The only mistake he's made all day...

    Rafael Nadal

    Tears. We want tears! Before Rafa makes another victory speech, the Roland Garros bosses put on a video of all his previous wins in Paris. Changing hairstyles, changing outfits, the same smile. And the same ferocious forehands. Spine-tingling stuff.

  13. "You were too good"

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Runner-up Stan Wawrinka speaking on court: "Rafa, I have nothing to say about today. You were too good. You are a great example and it's always been an honour to play against you. Congrats on your career, to you and your team."

    Luke Davies: Utter dominance from start to finish from Nadal. King of clay

    Stephanie Siu: Going to miss Uncle Toni so much!

    Jared Samuel Adams: The greatest and undisputed clay court player ever.

    Adam Shougee: Nadal staking his claim as best ever, extends lead to Djok. The year of Federer and Nadal. Stan to complete career slam Wimbledon.

    Rafael Nadal

    Roy Emerson, by the way, is 80 years old. He doesn't look a day over 65. Great genes.

    Now it is time for Rafa Nadal to step up onto a stage which looks rather like a fashion catwalk.

    Up struts the Spaniard, clasping the Coupe des Mousquetaires in both hands, then - as is the tradition - gently biting the top of the trophy for the cameras.

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Stan Wawrinka

    A massive roar as the name of Stan Wawrinka is read out, Rafa Nadal thumping his hands together in applause for the runner-up.

    Roy Emerson hands over a shiny silver plate to the Swiss. He might be serving some scones and jam on that tonight.

  17. Nadal wins his 10th French Open

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Everyone inside Chatrier is stood on their feet as Roy Emerson is introduced to the crowd. The 12-time Grand Slam winner is going to present the Coupe des Mousquetaires to Rafa Nadal. From one great champion to another. Very fitting.

  18. Post update

    Wawrinka 2-6 3-6 1-6 Nadal

    Nadal speaking on court: "I play my best in all events but the feeling I have here is impossible to describe and you can't compare it. The nerves and adrenaline I feel on this court is impossible to compare. It's the most important event in my career."

  19. Nadal wins his 10th French Open

    Did he have this scheduled? Or is he tweeting from his seat?

    Rafa runs over to his players' box, shaking hands with his loved one. They're too high to hug and kiss. And you can't do a Cashy at Wimbledon in Paris.

    Maybe he has gone over for his mobile phone...
