‘Nole’ is furthering his case in the discussion for the title of the best tennis player of all-time by becoming the first one to secure the #1 place in the year-end rankings for a record-breaking seventh time. This, after he won the Paris Masters, by beating Dmitry Medvedev. This is his record 37th Masters 1000 crown, one more than Rafael Nadal’s (ESP) 36.
