Achievement gallery of Rafael Nadal will have 2017 ATP No. 1 trophy

Del Potro closes in on Tour Finals

World No. 1 Rafa Nadal's participation in the season-ending Tour Finals hangs in the balance when the Spaniard pulled out of the Paris Masters with injury yesterday.

'Only thing I'm going to say, I'm going to do my treatment, do my best to be playing in London, but I can not talk about that now because it's a day that is tough enough for me to pull out from here'. I had treatment last night to try and be able to play today... Of the Big Four, only Federer seems certain to take his place at the ATP Finals in London later this month.

Nadal clinched the year-end number-one ranking with his second-round win against Chung Hyeon on Thursday but he was put through the wringer at times by the Uruguayan in French capital.

Although in 2017 Wimbledon, he was out after a defeat by Luxembourg ace Gilles Müller in the round of 16, Nadal clinched his fourth US Open trophy after the win over South Africa's Kevin Anderson. I saw him in the first week of the year in Abu Dhabi and I went, "Oh my goodness, this guy is hitting the ball 20-25% harder than recent years".

He missed the end of the 2012 season and the start of the following year with a left knee injury, and struggled with a wrist problem as he failed to reach a Grand Slam semi-final in 2015 and 2016.

In doing so, Thorburn announced a NAB initiative called "The Bridge" to assist those made redundant in finding future employment.

Top seed Nadal, a victor of 16 Grand Slam titles, had his knee heavily strapped in a battling three-set win against Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas yesterday.

"I don't think he's regretting it one little bit".

"It's not about London, it's about the longer term", he emphasised. He said that he was going to do his best to play in London, but that his main concern is not the World Tour Finals, but more so that he can continue playing tennis long-term.

'I have to pull out, ' Nadal said at a press conference.
