Djokovic back at No. 1; replaces Nadal, whose season is over

Khachanov dominates in Paris

'In this way I hope to be in full condition for the next season'.

What Anderson can not ascribe to, however, is progressing further than fourth in the world, with the points tally of current number one Novak Djokovic, withdrawn, but still current number two Rafael Nadal and number three Roger Federer beyond the South African's reach - come what might.

When Nadal withdrew in Paris he said that it was a new injury and not directly related to the knee issues that have forced him to the sidelines since early September.

The 32-year-old took to social media to announce that ongoing abdominal and ankle injuries have brought his season to an end.

It is a common occurrence at this time of year for Nadal to be suffering physically.

"Reflecting on what I've been through in the past year, it's quite a phenomenal achievement", said Djokovic, who has knocked RafaelNadal from the world top spot. "And, of course, I'm very, very happy and proud about it". "Five months ago, if you told me that, I would be - I always believe in myself, but it was highly improbable at that time considering my ranking and the way I played and felt on the court".

Nadal was spotted leaving hospital with his right ankle in a bandage following surgery on Monday. He hadn't been ranked that low since he was 22nd in 2006 as a teenager.

Djokovic raised his haul of major trophies to 14, tied with Sampras for third most in men's tennis history behind Federer with 20 and Nadal with 17.

"What Novak has achieved this season has to go down as one of the great sporting comebacks", ATP Executive Chairman Chris Kerned said.

Nadal confirmed Monday he would skip the end-of-season finals in London to undergo ankle surgery.

There, the young Greek saved a match point against Kevin Anderson to become the youngest player with four straight Top 10 wins at Masters 1000 events, setting the final against world number 1 Rafael Nadal where he fought well in the second set before losing 6-2 7-6, missing a chance to add the fifth Top 10 win that week.

The left-hander excels on the dirt and has won a staggering 11 French Open titles.
