Austria's Dominic Thiem strained every sinew trying to cling on to the 32-year-old Spaniard and at times even gained a precarious foothold in his first Grand Slam final.
The result also marks the sixth consecutive Grand Slam won by either Nadal or Federer.
"Along with Nadal, he is literally still the world of men's tennis, and to not play a Grand Slam on a surface that we play for two months, on which everybody has grown up on, to not come to the showpiece of claycourt tennis, it hurts the tournament, it hurts professional tennis, it hurts men's tennis".
But Thiem, unusually standing up to Nadal's first serve, forced two break points in the next game and converted the second with a flashing forehand into the right corner. But after, the Spaniard was imperious.
The score may have looked rather routine but there was some drama in the third set when Nadal called for the trainer at 2-1, 30-0.
But as soon as Nadal started downing salt tablets and undergoing hand and forearm massages at each change of ends, Thiem switched tactics and looked to extend the rallies in the hope of wearing his opponent out further.

According to Perrotta, Nadal has lost two Richard Mille watches that were stolen (one was later recovered) and almost lost a third when a fellow player found one in a locker room. The losses came against Thiem at Rome in May 2017 and at Madrid last month. And, of course, Nadal has owned the tournament that history will care about most: the French Open.
"I have never been insane about this kind of stuff", said Nadal.
"Difficult for me to think about it now", Nadal said, as per Express. However, here a year ago in the semi-finals, Nadal destroyed Thiem, losing just seven games in a rout, but it is worth mentioning that Thiem triumphed in their last meeting in Madrid last month, in the quarter-finals. His game plan had been to hit high to Nadal's backhand, then open up his body and skew the next shot at an acute angle into the opposite corner of the court. He is entered into the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club, starting a week today.
