Nadal withdrew from the Final tournament and ended the season

Rafael Nadal 'Being world No. 1 playing nine events is a miracle'

Djokovic has been handed arguably the most hard group as he is paired with Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner.

Rafael Nadal will miss November's season-ending ATP Finals in London and have surgery on an ankle injury.

On his page on "Twitter" Nadal reported that the early end of the season he was inclined to numerous health problems.

In a post on social media, 17-time Grand Slam champion Nadal wrote: "It has been a complicated year, very good at the tennis level when I was able to play, and at the same time very bad as far as injuries are concerned".

"Unfortunately, I had abdominal problem in Paris last week and also required an operation on an ankle injury".

American Isner, the lowest seed in the eight-player tournament, was confirmed as the Spaniard's replacement.

"With this, I hope to be in full health for the next season".

"Reflecting on what I've been through in the past year, it's quite a phenomenal achievement", Djokovic said. "I couldn't be happier to finish the season like this".

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however, is progressing further than fourth in the world, with the points tally of current number one Novak Djokovic, withdrawn, but still current number two Rafael Nadal and number three Roger Federer beyond the South African's reach - come what might.

Djokovic is the clear favourite at the ATP Finals in London this month.

Nadal follows Juan Martin del Potro as the second player to have qualified to be forced to withdraw through injury, with world No 10 Isner, 33, set to now make his debut in London. But he competed in only three events after the French Open in June. Djokovic has won four titles since July with two being Grand Slams - the Wimbledon and the US Open - and other two Masters Series events in Cincinnati and Shanghai.

"What Novak has achieved this season has to go down as one of the great sporting comebacks", said ATP president Chris Kermode.
