The Spaniard is now not sure he will be able to compete at the ATP Finals in London after having to pull out of the Masters event.


Nadal picked up an abdominal injury earlier in the tournament and has been unable to shake it off.


As a result of Nadal’s withdrawal, Djokovic will be confirmed as the new world number one on Monday.


While Nadal believed he could have played against compatriot
Fernando Verdasco, he did not think he was in competitive enough shape to complete the tournament.


It is huge news for Djokovic, who as recently as the Australian Open earlier in the year was not sure if he would ever truly recover from his persistent elbow injury.

The Swiss will now take on either Italy’s Fabio Fognini or Marton Fucsovics of Hungary on Thursday.


Remarkably, Federer has not had to play a single match in reaching the third round of the tournament.
