He won his 10th French Open today, so that's something huge. "It's something tough to describe when you just say you won 10 French Opens", he said.
The pair each pocketed €2.1 million (£1.8 million) for winning from an overall tournament purse of €36 million (£32 million).
Nadal's ascendency to his 10th French Open title was never in doubt after the first serve of the match.
After falling at the final hurdle against Roger Federer at the Australian Open this year, the Spaniard returned to his throne with a 10th French Open title, making him the first player in the Open Era to win the same major on 10 separate occasions. "And second, all the effort I have been doing last few weeks to get to my best level again, to get some confidence again, and to win all those matches, some tough matches".
"From the beginning from my side, for sure, I didn't play my best tennis", he said.
Nadal, who has now closed back to within three of Roger Federer's all-time record of 18 grand slams with a 15th major title of his own was beaming after the win.
The third set was more of the same, and Nadal dominated it.
Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka breaks his racket in the men's final match against Spain's Rafael Nadal at the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, in Paris, France, Sunday, June 11, 2017.
10 - The Spaniard's French Open haul puts him three clear of the competition's second most prolific victor - Borg won the Coupe des Mousqetaires six times between 1974 and 1981.
"We've worked a lot and without him I would not have 10 trophies", said the Mallorcan, who will rise to No. 2 in the world rankings today.

"It's truly awesome", he said in French. "Pretty sure I've lost my auto keys 35 times this year".
An ailing Wawrinka jogged out with a spring in his step following an off-court break, but was back on the ropes after Nadal crunched a forehand victor to his left to break in the opening game of the third set.
"I feel that I have been playing well since the start of this season and it has been very special".
The Spaniard notched his memorable success on a second match point when three-time Grand Slam victor Wawrinka sent a backhand into the net.
The only time Wawrinka matched Nadal's strokes was in the early part of the first set in when he held the first two service games and had a break point in the third game.
Nadal's next best was 41 games dropped in winning Roland Garros in 2008.
Spanish Tennis star Rafael Nadal on Sunday clinched the French Open title for the tenth time in his career.
"When you play against Rafa, if you hesitate, it's no good". "It's a grand slam, but it's the same grand slam". It was something special for me and I think for him, too.
But that's clearly the best he has ever played.
