"Unfortunately, I had the abdominal problem in Paris last week and, in addition, I have a free body in the ankle joint that has to be removed in the operating room today".

Alexander Zverev of Germany celebrates a point against Alex De Minaur of Australia during they third round of the 2018 Rolex Shanghai Masters on Day 5 at Qi Zhong Tennis Centre on October 11, 2018 in Shanghai, China. Djokovic, Federer, Zverev, Anderson, Cilic, Thiem, Nishikori and Isner are the eight aspirants to win the Finals.

"I am writing to you to signal the end of the season", Nadal said.

Djokovic is now just three behind Nadal's total of 17 Grand Slams and six shy of Roger Federer's record of 20. I could very well be the underdog in every single match I play; that could be a good thing for me.

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

Nadal is five years younger then Federer, but his all encompassing physical style of play has always put demands on him physically.

Nadal follows Juan Martin del Potro as the second player to have qualified to be forced to withdraw through injury, with world No 10 Isner, 33, set to now make his debut in London.


A hip injury proved increasingly problematic during his quarter-final against Marin Cilic and the top seed cut a frustrated figure as he retired trailing 2-0 in the fifth and final set.

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

The beaten finalist at Melbourne Park in 2017, Nadal saw his Australian Open campaign end in painful fashion this January.

Armenian Karen Khachanov, a rising star in the world of Tennis from Russian Federation, defeated incoming world champion Novak Djokovic to win his first Masters 1000 title at the Paris Masters, reported the BBC.

There are more grand slams and titles in Nadal.

Despite his successes, Nadal's season was marred by health woes. The Greek was unable to go all the way, losing to Rafael Nadal in the title match but achieving something that has not been seen that often at the events of the premium ATP series.
