Posted by

Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the Paris Masters due to an abdominal strain, a move that means Novak Djokovic will be crowned the new world number one in ATP rankings on Monday.

The Wimbledon and US Open winner of the current season Novak Djokovic will be the first player since Marat Safin, who started the season outside the top 20 and ultimately topped the ATP rating. Moreover, a Serb can surpass the Russian’s achievement if he retains the first place of the rating at the end of year.

Despite the withdrawal of Nadal, the tournament organizers will be happy to see another titled tennis player – Roger Federer, who appears in the tournament for the first time since 2015. The Swiss will begin his campaign for the 100th ATP title on Thursday.
