Season over for injured Nadal

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

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. I could very well be the underdog in every single match I play; that could be a good thing for me. More worryingly, unlike Roger Federer (knee) or Djokovic (elbow), it is several body parts hampering Nadal.

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.

It is a common occurrence at this time of year for Nadal to be suffering physically.

But nobody could question his courage at the 2012 Australian Open, when he beat Nadal in the longest Grand Slam final of all time, a draining 5hr 53min epic.

I will work next year again, where, honestly - you know I will tell you the truth - I don't know. I think he would be great for AC Milan .

Nadal - who has not featured on the ATP Tour since retiring ahead of his semi-final with Juan Martin del Potro at the US Open in September - posted an update to Twitter on Wednesday morning (AEDT), confirming he had returned following procedure.

Armenian Karen Khachanov, a rising star in the world of Tennis from Russian Federation, defeated incoming world champion Novak Djokovic to win his first Masters 1000 title at the Paris Masters, reported the BBC.

Khachanov will rise to world number 11 on Monday and becomes the first Russian since Nikolay Davydenko in 2009 to win a Masters 1000 title.

He should be feeling pretty good about his game right now and would be looking forward to reversing the results of his last year's showing in London where he was unable to win a match.

Once again we find ourselves wondering what shape Nadal will be in for next season. They have two children, a son Stefan and daughter Tara.

Black box data recovered from the crashed Lion Air jet showed the plane had an airspeed indicator problem on its four flights. The advice from the Federal Aviation Authority would be binding on all USA carriers flying Boeing 737 Max 8 versions.

There are those who see something a little more calculating in the Djokovic make-up. However, the two men have excelled on the ATP circuit this year.

Despite the doubts, the plaudits were generous on Monday.

"What Novak has achieved this season has to go down as one of the great sporting comebacks".
