Djokovic back at No. 1; replaces Nadal, whose season is over

Unfortunately, Paris had a problem with his stomach and my ankle there is a foreign body, which today it is necessary to remove during surgery.

Novak Djokovic is back at No. 1 in the ATP rankings after a two-year absence - and the first man in almost two decades to rise to the top spot after being outside the top 20 in the same season.

"As such, I hope to be in good condition for next season".

Five-time champion Djokovic was drawn in Group Guga Kuerten on the day he returned to the top of the rankings and Rafael Nadal withdrew from the season-ending tournament due to ankle and abdominal injuries.

Novak Djokovic is the top seed in this group and is pitted against Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and John Isner, which on paper definitely looks like the tougher group of the two, especially given the surface and conditions.

In a statement the 32-year-old said: "It has been a complicated year". I've been very close to making it for a number of years, but it just hasn't quite happened.

Having missed the second half of the 2017 season because of his troublesome elbow, Djokovic returned at the start of this year but the injury flared up again at the Australian Open and he chose to have surgery on it.

Djokovic, 31, underwent elbow surgery in January and slipped to 22nd in the world after a depressing quarter-final exit at Roland Garros in June, which left him briefly threatening to skip Wimbledon.

Djokovic is the clear favourite at the ATP Finals in London this month.

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

"What Novak has achieved this season has to go down as one of the great sporting comebacks", ATP Executive Chairman Chris Kerned said.

"He fully deserves his return to No.1 in the ATP Rankings and should be incredibly proud of his exceptional season".

He finished 2011 with a 70-6 win-loss record, a haul of 10 tournament victories and the year-end number one spot for the first time.
