Rafael Nadal one win away from 10th French Open title

Rafa Nadal moved to inside one triumph of 'La Decima' at the French Open as he obliterated rising Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-3 6-4 6-0 with an overwhelming show of drive in Friday's semi-last. The 31-year-old Spaniard, prepared to recover his Roland Garros crown following a two-year break, dispatched the 6th seed in minimal over two hours and is very nearly turning into the principal player to win a similar terrific pummel competition 10 times. He confronts Swiss Stan Wawrinka in Sunday's show-stopper coordinate. 

Thiem, similar to fourth seed Nadal, had achieved the semi-last without dropping a set and had trounced Serbian guarding champion Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals. 

Be that as it may, in the wake of beginning brilliantly in the early night daylight his test vanished into the infringing shadows on Court Philippe Chatrier — a field on which Nadal has never lost a semi-last or last since his introduction in 2005. 

Nadal has dropped just 29 recreations to achieve the last — outperforming his past best of 35 in 2012 and just two more than Bjorn Borg's record set in 1978. 

Swedish extraordinary Borg may even now hold that stamp yet Nadal has since a long time ago left the six-times French Open champion behind in the Roland Garros record books. 

After Nadal's limp exit to Djokovic in 2015 and the wrist damage that cut off his test a year ago, the Spanish claycourt ruler looks hungrier than any time in recent memory to expand his mastery on the mud surface where he has no opponent. 

Third seed Wawrinka's prior epic five-set fight against Andy Murray had deferred Nadal's appearance until almost 6pm neighborhood time and there was a feeling of "after the Lord Mayor's show" as the day's second semi-last started. 

A break for Thiem in the opening amusement immediately thought minds — albeit any prospect of a tussle to coordinate the dramatization of the day's first portion did not keep going long as Nadal recouped with two breaks of his own to take the opening set. 

Thiem, whose rich solitary strike had little impact all through the challenge, had soften focuses ahead of schedule up the second set yet Nadal pummeled the entryway close. 

The Spaniard, whose exclusive thrashing on the red earth this year came against Thiem in Rome, at that point broke with a clubbing forehand and lost just three more focuses on fill in as he wrapped up the second set. 

Thiem's expectations of imitating countryman Thomas Muster's French title in 1995, were over in a blaze as Nadal hustled through the third set in 28 uneven minutes.
