Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer learn ATP World Tour Finals draw fate

Rafael Nadal 'Being world No. 1 playing nine events is a miracle'

Spanish tennis star, Rafael Nadal confirmed on Monday that he will miss the ATP finals in London and not play again this season after undergoing an operation on his right ankle in Barcelona.

Rafael Nadal's season is over after he withdrew from the 2018 ATP Finals which start at The O2 in London on Sunday 11 November.

Kevin Anderson has had another great season after a showing in his maiden Grand Slam final in NY past year, with a remarkable run to the Wimbledon final and winning his first ATP 500 title in Vienna just a couple of weeks ago.

Djokovic will be the ATP's year-ending No. 1 for the fifth time, pulling even with Roger Federer and Jimmy Connors for the second most since the computer rankings began in 1973.

He added that he made a decision to have the ankle operation so he can start 2019 healthy.

"As such, I hope to be in good condition for next season".

Nadal withdrew from last month's Paris Masters with an abdominal muscle injury, meaning Novak Djokovic replaced him as world number one.

Novak Djokovic reclaimed the world No.1 ranking on Monday after a two-year absence and is assured of finishing the year there.

"Reflecting on what I've been through in the past year, it's quite a phenomenal achievement", said Djokovic. I've been very close to making it for a number of years, but it just hasn't quite happened.

Meanwhile, Nadal's place in the ATP finals will be taken by the American, John Isner. But he competed in only three events after the French Open in June.

After his success at Roland Garros and a run to the semi-finals of Wimbledon, Nadal did enjoy hard-court success, beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final of the Rogers Cup .

"What Novak has achieved this season has to go down as one of the great sporting comebacks".

The Serb returned to the number one spot for the first time since 2016 despite his loss in the Paris Masters final against Karan Khachanov.
