Nadal quits Paris with knee injury

Rafael Nadal is set to finish the year at the top of the rankings. AFP

Nadal has already made sure he would finish the year on top of the ATP Rankings and thus he will not be expected to push himself too much to feature in the year-ending event in London.

Nadal's career has come to be defined by injuries in recent years.

While serving for the set, the 21-year-old Chung, ranked world number 55, broke Nadal's service again, only to make Nadal sweat a little more before the Spaniard clinched the set. He had won five consecutive French Open titles from 2010-14.

Notably, the Spaniard, who had sealed the year-ending top spot with his second round win over Hyeon Chung on Wednesday (November 1) played with heavy strapping on his right knee during his 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 win over Pablo Cuevas in the round of 16 on Thursday.

Nadal's top ranking comes after his main rival, Swiss Roger Federer, pulled out of this year's last Masters event, reports Efe news agency.

Federer and Nadal have won two Grand Slams apiece in 2017 to take their tally to 19 and 16 men's singles major titles respectively and they have been backed to win again next season owing to their current form. "The way that I am today I do not see myself playing three more matches", he said. "The two things are handsome and important, but without a doubt there's a big difference, if you ask me".

"For me, it's not about London".

Last year's runner-up Isner will face Krajinovic, who will be playing his first ATP semi-final of the season, on Saturday.
