Toni Nadal hails 'brilliant' Rafa

Rafael Nadal after winning the French Open for a 10th time

"If I don't feel that, my chances are not good".

"When compared to a year ago, when he [Djokovic] held all four Grand Slams, he's in a relatively hard situation", Federer said at a news conference.

"Everything went brilliant - the match was a lot quicker and easier than we were expecting", said 56-year-old Toni who has coached his nephew since he was three years old but will step aside at the end of 2017.

"I was trying to find solution", Wawrinka said. "Roland Garros is the most important tournament for me".

The pair have contested some of the most memorable finals of the modern era, establishing themselves as not just the two greatest players of their generation, but of all time.

"No one has ever performed better in Paris, and his opponent [Wawrinka] is not a bad player. You are always going to be in my heart".

Key Stat: Nadal ended Federer's 27-match winning streak at majors, preventing him from a fourth Grand Slam title in a row.

"When you play against Rafa, if you hesitate, it's no good".

"He will win grand slams in the future and fight again for world number one".

Inevitably thoughts are already turning to Wimbledon and the prospect of Nadal repeating his 2008 and 2010 victories - both of which followed hot on the heels of winning French titles without dropping a set as he did this year.

Wawrinka had the first break point in the third game but he couldn't take advantage and it proved to be the only break point he earned all afternoon.

From there, it was all downhill.

Nadal established himself as a star-in-the-making, beating Roger Federer in four sets in the semifinals in the first Grand Slam meeting of their great rivalry, before getting past Puerta for the title.

World number one Andy Murray will defend his title at the Aegon Championships, which will feature four of the world's top 10 men.

The Spaniard becomes the first man to reach double figures at a single Slam and, if he continues to play like this, then Margaret Court's all-time record of 11 Australian Open titles looks certain to fall.
