Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will battle it out for the No. 1 ranking this week at the season-ending Nitto ATP Finals.

Nadal comes into the tournament as the current No. 1 and controls his own destiny, but the Spaniard - who could have secured the top spot by winning the Rolex Paris Masters - is under an injury cloud after hurting his abdominal region during a practice session just over a week ago.

Djokovic must make the final in order to have a chance of reclaiming the No. 1 ranking - and he got his campaign off to the perfect start on Sunday, crushing Matteo Berrettini for the loss of just three games in his Group Bjorn Borg opener.

That win propels Djokovic to within 440 points of Nadal, with the Serbian trying to finish as year-end No. 1 for the sixth time, which would equal the record held by Pete Sampras. Nadal will begin his quest for a first Nitto ATP Finals title on Monday night against defending champion Alexander Zverev.

“It is up for grabs for both of us. This tournament is going to decide [it]. He’s in a better position, but after winning Paris-Bercy I put myself in a pretty good position,” Djokovic said before his London opener. 
“I think it’s probably in my personal opinion one of the two biggest achievements that you can have as a professional competitive tennis player, winning a Grand Slam and being No. 1 of the world at the end of the season. At this stage of my career obviously in terms of goals and achievements, obviously that’s right at the top".

Daniil Medvedev and Dominic Thiem can also make significant ranking pushes in London, especially with Thiem beating last year’s semi-finalist Roger Federer in their first group match on Sunday night.

Medvedev is only 485 points behind Federer for the No. 3 ranking, while Thiem is a further 680 points adrift of the Russian at No. 4.

Meanwhile, there hasn’t been much movement in the top 50 with the regular season having come to a close, but there is still a lot of players fighting it out on the Challenger Tour as they make one last push to secure a spot in the Australian Open main draw and also the qualifying draw for those around the 200-250 mark.

Spanish youngster Jaume Munar has endured a disappointing season after rising to the cusp of the top 50 last year, but after winning the Montevideo Challenger, he’s climbed 11 spots in the latest ATP rankings to No. 87 in the world.

Austrian Dennis Novak has also put himself in contention to make the Australian Open main draw as a direct entrant, capturing the Bratislava Challenger to move up 18 places in the rankings to No. 108, which is four spots off his career-high.

Meanwhile, Michael Mmoh has a shot of making it into the qualifying draw after winning the Knoxville Challenger, rising 57 rungs on the rankings ladder to No. 237 after defeating Christopher O’Connell in the final.

O’Connell deserves a mention as well, with the Australian improving his ranking over 1,000 spots in 2019 after recovering from numerous injury issues. The 25-year-old is currently at a career-high No. 128 in the world.
