ATP Finals: Rafael Nadal ruled out of London event

ATP Finals: Rafael Nadal ruled out of London event

Nadal has pulled out of the season-ending ATP Finals because of an abdominal injury. With London now not on his schedule the 17-time grand slam victor has also undergone surgery on his right ankle. The Serbian will now become the first player since ATP rankings were introduced in 1973 to end the year at number one having started it outside the top 20.

As Nadal looks ahead to eight weeks of preparation for the new season, Novak Djokovic now knows he will end the year as the world number one for the fifth time in his career.

Novak Djokovic will begin the week as the top-ranked men's singles player in the world, but it was not the flawless ending he anticipated after suffering a shock loss to Karen Khachanov in the final of the Roles Masters in Paris on Sunday.

"It will be 48 hours very quiet, to see how it evolves, and then start moving the ankle and work a lot in the pool".

"We will go at the right speed within what common sense allows us".

"It is true that we have known about it for a while, and from time to time it bothered me".

"With this, I hope to be in full health for the next season".




Djokovic moved up from No. 2 to overtake Rafael Nadal on Monday.

Any year in which you win an 11th title at Roland Garros, Barcelona and Monte Carlo is hardly a wasted one, and yet this has been a deeply frustrating year for Nadal.

However, Nadal's primary focus once again next year may well be the clay season.

So yes, the Swiss legend, Roger Federer and the invincible man from Serbia, Novak Djokovic hold the crest at the tournament.

Boris Becker believes the draw for the ATP Finals gives Roger Federer a big advantage over Novak Djokovic in next week's tournament in London.

As a reward, Karen will travel to London as an alternate for the ATP Finals and he will finish the season just outside the Top 10, setting his eyes on much bigger goals in 2019 after what we saw from him at the US Open against Rafael Nadal and the last week in Paris.

Federer - a six-time victor of the prestigious event - will come up against Anderson, Dominic Thiem and Kei Nishikori in Group Lleyton Hewitt.
