(CNN) -- Roger Federer beat James Blake in Sunday's Masters Cup final in Shanghai to take his season's earnings in prize money to $8.34 million -- becoming the first player to earn more than $8 million in a season.

12: The number of titles won by the Swiss world No. 1 from 17 tournaments contested this season, the first player to win so many since Thomas Muster in 1995.

3: The number of Grand Slams won by Federer this season -- the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. He was beaten in the final of the French Open by Rafael Nadal.

6: The number of consecutive Grand Slam finals Federer has reached.

34 minutes: The length of time it took Blake to win a game in the final.

22: The number of errors made by Federer.

41: The number of winning shots made by Federer.

29: The number of consecutive matches Federer has won.

160: The number of consecutive weeks for which Jimmy Connors was world No. 1 during the 1970s. Federer already has enough points to ensure he breaks that record on February 26, 2007.
