Nadal won his record 11th title at Roland Garros on Sunday, beating Thiem in straight sets on Philippe Chatrier. Nadal has now won 17 Grand Slam titles - three lesser than great rival Roger Federer - and matched the all-time record of most titles won at the same Grand Slam event set by Margaret Court at the Australian Open during the 1960s and 70s.
Nadal is now the first player in the Open Era, male or female, to win the same Grand Slam tournament 11 times, a feat that has been dubbed La Undécima, after Real Madrid's bid to win an 11th European Cup.
Thiem was trying to become only the second Austrian grand slam champion after Tomas Muster's 1995 Paris triumph and played his part in the tussle that lasted two hours and 42 minutes, but was unable to sustain the high-octane tennis needed to unnerve Nadal. The world No 1 lived up to his billing as the heavy favourite with a 6-3 6-3 6-4 victory over surprise finalist Anderson.
Dominic Thiem was vying for his first Grand Slam title on Sunday.
The win helped him extend his incredible run at Roland Garros to 66 wins and just one defeat over 10 years.
Unlike past year - when those first few games realistically settled things - Thiem bounced back, breaking straight away.
Federer, 36, skipped the clay-court season for the second successive year, but will return for the grass-court season which culminates at Wimbledon next month.
Thiem lost to Nadal in the second round on his Roland Garros debut in 2014, then again in last year's semi-finals.

Diego Schwartzman has come closest this fortnight to become the third man to beat Nadal in Paris.
Thiem, competing in his first major final, was second best in the next set as he was edged out in a gruelling second game for the only break of serve.
"He is an exceptional clay court player but he was still no match for Nadal today".
He saved three break points in his first service game but a wayward backhand ensured Nadal took the fourth.
That's three behind Federer who is more than four years older.
"I have to come back to speak with my team", said Nadal, who pulled out of Queen's in 2016 -because of a serious wrist injury and past year because of exhaustion.
Two breaks later Nadal was in a familiar position, serving for the title, and when another Thiem forehand dropped long, his arms were raised in celebration, yet again.
Playing Nadal at the French Open is possibly the biggest challenge in the game now, and if Thiem had to win at it he had to be flawless.

The game will feature updated visuals, refined gameplay, and support for 16:9 4K in this incredibly hard-to-forget journey. The trailer for the game, revealed at Devolver's frankly mad E3 conference, doesn't make a lot of sense, if I'm honest.
