Rafael Nadal and Djokovic should not play in Saudi Arabia says Navratilova

Novak Djokovic returned to No. 1 on Monday after a two-year absence and is assured of becoming the first man in the history of the ATP rankings to finish a season at the top spot after being outside the top 20 during that season. I really wanted to play in both Paris and London.

"When a longer period has elapsed, we will start with charges and supports". Without hurry, but without pause.

"But unfortunately, I had an abdominal problem in Paris last week and, in addition, I have a [problem] with my right ankle joint that [required] an operation [today]".

"It is true that we had detected for some time and occasionally bothered me". However, since the problem in the abdominal muscles also prevents me from playing in London, we are taking the time to remove the foreign body and avoid future problems.

The Spaniard will be hoping to return to full fitness for the Australian Open - where he won the title in 2009 - in January.

Djokovic has also not been afraid to take chances and innovate his game, bringing in Boris Becker as part of his coaching team for the start of the 2014 season, although he has since reunited with long-time mentor Marian Vajda.

Any year in which you win an 11th title at Roland Garros, Barcelona and Monte Carlo is hardly a wasted one, and yet this has been a deeply frustrating year for Nadal.

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

Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the ATP Finals and ended his 2018 season prematurely to undergo ankle surgery.

Five-time champion Novak Djokovic will face Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner in the group stages at the ATP Finals after the draw was confirmed in London on Monday.

In the group name of Lleyton Gutta will play Swiss Roger Federer, South African Kevin Anderson, the Austrian Dominic Tim and the Japanese Kei Nishikori.
