Adjust Comment Print

Five-time champion Djokovic was drawn in Group Guga Kuerten on the day he returned to the top of the rankings and Rafael Nadal withdrew from the season-ending tournament due to ankle and abdominal injuries.

Nadal said on Twitter on Monday that he was still bothered by the stomach muscle issue that forced him to withdraw from last week's Paris Masters and opted to have ankle surgery now in preparation for 2019.

Of the two grand slams and six Masters 1000 events on hard courts in 2018, Rafael Nadal has only finished one and will miss the ATP Finals.

What Anderson can not ascribe to, however, is progressing further than fourth in the world, with the points tally of current number one Novak Djokovic, withdrawn, but still current number two Rafael Nadal and number three Roger Federer beyond the South African's reach - come what might.
