The Spaniard won the ATP Master 1000 in Indian Wells on Sunday. This is the thirteenth tournament won in his career, including 2 Slam titles and 5 ATP Master 1000 titles.

They are impressive numbers, if you consider that the Spanish player has not yet turned 21 having been born on 5 May 2003. There are some numbers that indicate his great precocity and which deserve to be underlined.
