Nadal's victory in Canada tennis

Rafael Nadal has scored his 29th win in a row to take the Toronto Masters tennis title in Canada.

The Spaniard thrashed Germany's Nicolas Kiefer 6-3 6-2 in the final to claim his fifth tournament triumph in his latest winning streak.

Nadal's recent successes mean he's got a good chance of ending Roger Federer's reign as the world's number one player.

The 22-year-old will have a chance to overtake Federer in the rankings at the Cincinnati Masters later this week.

If he wins the tournament and Federer loses BEFORE the semi-finals, then Nadal will become the new world number one.

Nadal, who became the Wimbledon champ last month, said he'd love to make it to number one, but was still happy to be world number two.

"I think I have to be happy, very happy if I am number one or number two" he said.

"If I am number two it's because in front of me there is an amazing player like Roger."
