    a record seven times

    Over the past decade Rafael Nadal has got the French Opentitle a record seven times.

    Is the underlined part grammatically acceptable from a native's point of view?

    Re: a record seven times

    Yes, although "Nadal has got ..." sounds unnatural.

    Over the past decade, Nadal has won the French Open [title] a record seven times."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
