Im too excited for the final.. at 1.30am..

Too tired sedar2 dah habis.. and I was just on time to see him with the Trophy..

Vamos Rafa.. u did it again..

Nadal was just great , no??

TORONTO (AP)—Rafael Nadal beat Nicolas Kiefer 6-3, 6-2 on Sunday to win the Rogers Cup, his fifth straight tournament victory.
The second-seeded Spaniard has won 29 consecutive matches and seven tournaments—including the French Open and Wimbledon—this year. This was his first win on hard court this season.

I win on every surface, no? I win on grass, on hard, on indoor, and on clay, too,” Nadal said. “So if I am playing my best tennis I can win on every surface, no?”

Toronto done.. the gap now is just 300points from being #1.

Nadal, who has ranked No. 2 for a record 157 weeks, will become the new No. 1 next Sunday if he wins the title at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnati and Federer loses before the semifinals. After Federer’s second round loss to Gilles Simon earlier this week, Nadal has now cut the gap to a mere 300 points and is potentially just one week away from ending Federer’s 234 week reign (since February 2004) at the top spot (see below).

Cincinnati will starts today..

Too happy..Vamos Rafa..
