  • Federer makes winning return in Stuttgart

No, no, no, I can't - I can't be always thinking of more.

Nadal, 32, is second behind Federer in the list of all-time Grand Slam titles, three clear of Pete Sampras in third.

Sunday's result marks the sixth consecutive Grand Slam won by either Nadal or 20-times major champion Roger Federer.

Since his last title in London eight years ago, he has also suffered a first round exit as well as two defeats in the second round.

Nadal had come into the year's second Grand Slam high on confidence, after wins in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Rome.

Nadal, however, averted danger with a pass after dragging Thiem in with a deft drop-shot.

Others highlighted Nadal's remarkable record at Roland Garros since first winning the title there in 2005. When a return went long on a fifth match point, Nadal raised his arms in joy. Whether it was at the Masters tournaments in Monte Carlo, Madrid, or Rome-whether it was his home tournament in Barcelona-Nadal nearly never lost on the Spaniard. "Dominic is an opponent who is very aggressive, very hard to play, with big shots". In case you can't do that math in your head that's less than two sets per tournament - and that includes the three times he didn't win the title. It was very humid and he pushed me to limit.

"I arrived so-so, with some doubts about this clay-court season".

Nadal struck first in an enthralling opening set, breaking Thiem's first service game to take a two-game lead but they were back on serve immediately as the Austrian hit back.

He only dropped one more game as he completed his 86th win at Roland Garros in 2hr 42min.

"I want to say well played to Dominic".

"Of course it's going to be easier because it's not going to be the first time anymore".

Rafael Nadal reacts after beating Dominic Thiem to claim his 11th French Open title. Earlier in the week Robin Soderling, who handed Nadal his first French Open loss in the fourth round in 2009, said the only workable strategy against the Spaniard was to be "really aggressive".

Nadal needed five match points in a tense final game, eventually completing the job when Thiem fired a backhand long. I play for my happiness, and I know that I had already, yeah, an awesome career.
