Rafael Nadal is officially the new World No. 1 despite having to withdraw in the Rolex Paris Masters semi-finals - but Novak Djokovic can reclaim the top spot with a successful week at the upcoming ATP Finals in London after winning his 34th Masters 1000 title in Paris on Sunday.

Nadal could have secured the year-end No. 1 ranking by winning his first Paris Masters title, but the Spaniard suffered an abdominal injury during practice ahead of his scheduled semi-final with Denis Shapovalov and was forced to withdraw from the tournament.

Djokovic took full advantage, claiming his fifth Rolex Paris Masters title without dropping a set all week, producing a stellar performance in Sunday’s final against Shapovalov, dropping just 10 points on serve in a commanding 6-3 6-4 triumph.

The Serbian improved to 8,945 points in the battle for No. 1 and trails Nadal by 640 points heading into the season-ending championships in a week’s time. Djokovic can claim a maximum 1,500 points in London as an undefeated champion, while there’s also a chance Nadal won’t be able to take his spot at the ATP Finals due to injury.

“I'm sad to see that he's injured because that's not what you want to see, not for Rafa, not for any other athlete,” Djokovic said.
“In terms of points, that puts me in a better position after this week. But, again, I have to keep on winning. There's always a chance that I win all my matches in London, that I play well. I have done it in the past, and I like playing there. But it's [an] extremely difficult task, considering who my opponents are going to be.”

Djokovic will be aiming to finish the season as year-end No. 1 for a record-equaling sixth time, while Nadal is looking to do it for the fifth time in his career.

Roger Federer remains No. 3 despite pulling out of the Paris Masters and losing 760 points courtesy of reaching the semi-finals last year. It means Daniil Medvedev is only 485 points behind the Swiss at No. 4, with the Russian set to have a chance to break into the top three for the first time on his ATP Finals debut.

With his London points from last year dropping off, Alexander Zverev is down to World No. 7, while Matteo Berrettini and Roberto Bautista Agut have new career-high marks in the top 10 at No. 8 and No. 9 respectively.

Gael Monfils returns to the top 10 after reaching the Paris Masters quarter-finals, while runner-up Shapovalov moves up 13 places to a career-high ranking of No. 15. Karen Khachanov slips nine spots to No. 17 after failing to defend his title, while semi-finalist Grigor Dimitrov rises seven rungs on the rankings ladder to No. 20.
