Novak Djokovic has enjoyed a stunning second half of the season
In a statement released on Twitter, Nadal confirmed the problem which forced him to miss the final Masters 1000 tournament of the campaign and continued pain in his ankle was the reason behind his absence from the elite eight-player field in London.
"I did everything possible to be able to reach the end of the season in good condition, both for Paris and for London, doing things well and remaining keen to play".
"Novak has everything to make records in this sport", said Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro after losing to Djokovic in the US Open final.
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.
Without Nadal, the Serb will be the clear favourite at the ATP Finals, for which the draw will be made later on Monday.
"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".
We had detected it a while ago and it occasionally bothered me.
And Novak Djokovic, who is now guaranteed to finish the year in place of number 1 in the world that only Rafael Nadal could contest it.
Djokovic moved up from No. 2 to overtake Rafael Nadal on Monday.
"This way I hope to be in top condition for next season". More worryingly, unlike Roger Federer (knee) or Djokovic (elbow), it is several body parts hampering Nadal.
At Wimbledon in 2007, he retired with a back injury in the third set of his semi-final against Nadal.
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.
The issue was serious enough to also rule Nadal out of the Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami, but he went on to enjoy familiar success on clay, including yet another French Open title. It was the 22-year-old's first Masters Series title and the win will see him rise to number 11 in the rankings.
