Rafael Nadal was the last man standing in Montreal on Sunday, clinching back-to-back Coupe Rogers titles and a record-extending 35th Masters 1000 crown.

The victory against Daniil Medvedev was the Spaniard's most lopsided win in a Masters 1000 final since dropping just one game against Fernando Verdasco in the 2010 Monte Carlo summit clash. Moreover, it was his most comfortable victory in a hardcourt Masters 1000 final since 2009 Indian Wells when he beat Andy Murray 6-1, 6-2.

The Montreal victory marked the first time Nadal successfully defended a title outside of clay.

To commemorate the Spaniard's 35th Masters 1000 triumph, here's presenting 35 Masters 1000 milestones from his career:
