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".

"I couldn't be happier to end the season like this, to win against Novak Djokovic, the number one in the world". Play in London begins next Sunday.

But he has seemingly rediscovered his start of the season form, with a very good showing in Paris with impressive wins over Kohlschreiber and Dimitrov, and pushing Djokovic to the brink.

As a reward, Karen will travel to London as an alternate for the ATP Finals and he will finish the season just outside the Top 10, setting his eyes on much bigger goals in 2019 after what we saw from him at the US Open against Rafael Nadal and the last week in Paris.

But he would have been keen to continue his winning run in the final regular-season event of the 2018 campaign before the ATP Finals in London.

But he has time on his side - Federer has already celebrated his 37th birthday while injury-plagued Nadal is 32. Djokovic, Federer, Zverev, Anderson, Cilic, Thiem, Nishikori and Isner are the eight aspirants to win the Finals.

Rafael Nadal announced Monday he has cut his season short because of more health setbacks.

He is three majors off Roger Federer's men's record of 20 Grand Slams.

A hip injury proved increasingly problematic during his quarter-final against Marin Cilic and the top seed cut a frustrated figure as he retired trailing 2-0 in the fifth and final set.

Djokovic has also not been afraid to take chances and innovate his game, bringing in Boris Becker as part of his coaching team for the start of the 2014 season, although he has since reunited with long-time mentor Marian Vajda.

There are more grand slams and titles in Nadal.

The left-hander excels on the dirt and has won a staggering 11 French Open titles.

At Wimbledon this year, he hit out at some Centre Court fans for a perceived lack of respect while schedulers also felt his ire for exiling him to Court Two for a third round match.
