ATP stats and information guru Greg Sharko looks at the numbers behind the stories of the ATP World Tour in his regular column, 'Shark Bites'.

Rafael Nadal captured his 17th career ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title Sunday in Rome, tying Andre Agassi’s record which he held since 2004. Nadal accomplished the feat in his 52nd ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament in a span of less than eight years while the American needed 84 tournaments to reach that mark in 14 years.

Nadal’s Finals (17-6)
Nadal is the only player to reach nine different tournament finals. Of the current nine tournaments the only final he has not reached is Cincinnati where he has a 9-6 match record. His most successful tournaments have come in Monte-Carlo and Rome where he’s won 11 titles and compiled a 61-2 match record. Overall, he’s won six different ATP Masters 1000 tournaments.
