This season is truly a gifted one for Rafael Nadal. The Spanish tennis star has become the fourth player to earn 1,000 Open Era singles victories and is to be continued. On wednesday, with a win over Feliciano Lopez in the ongoing Paris Masters he entered the 1000 win club. He said "It has been a special moment. I know is a very special number, 1000. Even if it's not the same to celebrate something like this without a crowd, I enjoy it with ATP, with the president of the French Federation, with Guy Forget, supervisor and the ball boys".
