Rafael Nadal wins his 10th French Open wearing a $750,000 watch

In the words of Jay Z, Rafael Nadal isn't a businessman, he's a business, man. The 31-year-old Spaniard won his 10th French Open and his 15th Grand Slam on Sunday, and he did it in style. Nadal wore a $750,000 Richard Mille watch in the process of sweeping Stan Wawrinka in the French Open men's final, which is something you can only do if you're worth an estimated $140 million. Nadal became the first person to take 10 championships at the same Grand Slam event.

Nadal has had an incredible run at every Grand Slam event, but no one has ever dominated like he dominates the clay surface at the French Open. He has become a staple at Roland Garros, and perhaps even more impressive than his ability to win has been his longevity. While other players experience ups and downs, Nadal never appears to falter, consistently emerging from the field as the best player in the world.

Nike released a video paying tribute to the Nadal's incredible dominance at the Open before announcing a commemorative sneaker in his honor. It is aptly named the NikeCourt Tennis Classic ElDecimo. Unfortunately, the shoe is only being released at Nike Paris Champs-Elysees on Monday, so obtaining a pair might be difficult. On the bright side, if you have $750,000 to spare, you can wear Nadal's fashion on your wrist instead.
