- Nadal coasts to a record 10th French Open title, demolishing Wawrinka in a brutally one-sided final which also earns the Spaniard a 15th Grand Slam crown.
The top-seeded Nadal won the match 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 at Roland Garros in Paris against Thiem, a 24-year-old who is ranked No. 7.
Despite his remarkable efforts, the 32-year-old remains three titles behind Federer, who will be targeting a 21st Slam win at Wimbledon next month.
"I think today I played my best match of the tournament", Nadal said.
Nadal has won six of his nine matches against Thiem, all of them coming on that famously hard red clay.

The Austrian is one of just three players to down Nadal on clay at least three times. He played a great two weeks. When a return went long on a fifth match point, Nadal raised his arms in joy.
But the Austrian freed his shoulders and broke back in the third game with a forehand victor - pumping his fists in the direction of coach Gunter Bresnik. After guzzling water during his visit from the doctor, Nadal was back to playing his unmistakable brand of almost unbeatable clay-court tennis.
Thiem put up a good fight in his opening service game of the third set, saving four breakpoints.
