Rafael Nadal tweets after ankle surgery — ATP Finals

Annabel Croft I think Rafael Nadal will play the ATP Finals

Rafael Nadal withdraws from the 2018 ATP Finals in London and we must take a moment to look back on his year.

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

Nadal published a statement on social media in which he said it had "been a hard year - very good on a tennis level when I have been able to play and, at the same time, very bad as far as injuries are concerned".

"Unfortunately I had the abdominal problem in Paris last week and I also have an issue in the ankle joint that has to be removed in the operating room today", the 17-times Grand Slam victor wrote on Twitter.

As Nadal looks ahead to eight weeks of preparation for the new season, Novak Djokovic now knows he will end the year as the world number one for the fifth time in his career.

World number 10 John Isner will replace the 17-time at the showpiece event in London.

'I would reckon the Novak Djokovic group is the tougher one, ' said the German, who coached Djokovic for three years.

Djokovic had already confirmed his place as the world number one before the semifinals after Rafael Nadal - the previous incumbent of the top spot - pulled out with an injury before the tournament got underway.

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

Cape Town - It's a case intriguingly of what he can achieve, what he can't achieve and what he will achieve when top South African tennis player Kevin Anderson competes in his first ATP Finals next week.

"I'm very, very happy and proud about it".

Nadal withdrew from the following week's Cincinnati Masters and was then forced to bring a premature end to his US Open semi-final with Juan Martin del Potro due to a knee injury.

Djokovic's dominant run ended on Sunday when he was beaten 7-5, 6-4 by Russian Kharen Khachanov in the Paris Masters final.

While Federer will need to try and stop the big-serving South African Anderson, who beat him at Wimbledon, his other opponents are Dominic Thiem and Kei Nishikori.
