Ken Rosewall presents Rafael Nadal with French Open trophy

Tennis icon Federer'may sign $300 million deal

It remains to be seen whether Nadal will play any tune-up events before Wimbledon, which begins on 2 July, and that could be dictated by the severity of the wrist injury which hindered his campaign at Roland Garros.

Up in the stands, Nadal's uncle Toni, his former coach, was nervous, too, "because I thought maybe we can have a problem", he said.

Nadal's Grand Slam CV boasts 11 French Opens, three US Open titles, two at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open.

Thiem managed to break back, but it was the only blow he landed all afternoon.

Nadal remained implacable in the homestretch, intent on ignoring his temporarily impaired hand, outracing the rainclouds that hovered close and low but didn't erupt, and trying to outrun, outhit and outwit a player who was 11 years old when he won his first title here in 2005.

The Spaniard was quick to hammer home his advantage at the start of the second, converting his fifth break point of a lengthy game as Thiem's usually trusty backhand let him down.

The Spanish world No.1 defeated Dominic Thiem in straight sets on Sunday to secure his second consecutive championship in Paris.

"What is in my mind now is I won a very important title for me".

If there were any reason for a bit of intrigue entering Sunday's match, it was this: Thiem is the only person to beat Nadal on red clay over the past two seasons, doing so at Rome in May 2017 and at Madrid last month.

Thiem was considered the stiffest test for Nadal at the French Open, and understandably so.

Apple: Don't Mine Cryptocurrencies on an iPhone
The updated guidelines , posted last week, are found in the Hardware Compatibility and Cryptocurrencies sections of the document . Apple has banned developers from submitting cryptocurrency mining apps designed for the iPhone or iPad.

Despite this, Nadal has insisted he is not actively pursuing his grand slam rival. Nadal said last week that he wanted to keep playing for a while, and if his body co-operates, 15 seems like a realistic possibility.

"It was a special thing for me to play the first Slam finals". "It was just awful misses".

"It's great to be back, to enjoy actually being with the players, you know". Of course, I have ambition, I have passion for what I am doing, but I never have been insane about all this kind of stuff.

He added: "You can't be frustrated always if somebody has more money than you, if somebody has a bigger house than you, if somebody has more grand slams than you".
