Djokovic, incidentally, is assured of his fifth number one record even before the ATP Finals begin as a result of Nadal's late withdrawal through injury.

Nadal withdrew from the following week's Cincinnati Masters and was then forced to bring a premature end to his US Open semi-final with Juan Martin del Potro due to a knee injury.

The 32-year-old won the French Open - his 17th grand slam title - but he competed in just three hard-court tournaments in 2018, winning the Rogers Cup while retiring at both the Australian Open and at Flushing Meadows.
