TOKYO: Lucky Number Seven for Nadal

We're approaching the closing few weeks of the season and guess what?! Rafael Nadal is still winning!

The supersonic world number 1 just bagged his 7th title of the season as he breezed past France's Gael Monfils 6-1, 7-5 in the Tokyo final on Sunday.

The Spaniard continues to show that regardless the surface, the continent, the prize money or the opponent, the goal is always the same: to do his very best to win matches and titles. The kind of work ethic and determination that drives him to seek perfection by relentlessly trying to improve his game.

He is a true tennis phenomenon that takes nothing foregranted. A legend at 24 with inherent humility. A humility so rare in a human with so much success and superior talents.

After achieving the ultimate tennis dream of winning all 4 Slams, Nadal still finds it in himself to give his all in the waning stages of the season, after 9 long months of hard work on court.

The 9-time Grand Slam champion shows no signs of slowing down as he next heads to the Shanghai Masters where he awaits Gilles Simon or Stanislas Wawrinka in the second round.
