Nadal secures world No.1 until end of year

TENNIS TV

Nadal was quoted to be saying by PTI, "Yesterday (Thursday), the pain was very strong but it was not the moment to stop".

Nadal's career has come to be defined by injuries in recent years. He is now the oldest end-of-year No. 1, at age 31, something that he didn't even seem to know.

However, after his match win, he played a much tighter game against Pablo Cuevas, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3, with the Spaniard withdrawing from his next match, a quarterfinal, due to the same knee injury that bothered him when he lost to Roger Federer in the Shanghai Open a few weeks ago.

"I can not talk about London now", he added. "But unfortunately, it was impossible for me to return to the court in the same condition as last night", Nadal said.

In the finale of the Paris Masters on Sunday, American player Jack Sock won his first Masters 1000 title after beating qualifier Krajinovic.

"It is not about London, it is about the longer term" he added.

Nadal's top ranking comes after his main rival, Swiss Roger Federer, pulled out of this year's last Masters event, reports Efe news agency.

While expressing disappointment over missing out on a Paris double following his French Open win earlier this year, Nadal revealed he will do his best to feature in the prestigious Tour Finals, but also said a decision would be taken keeping the future in mind. "The way that I am today I do not see myself playing three more matches", he said.

Remarkably it is a tournament that the Spaniard has never won and he now faces an anxious week of rehab to make the field for the eight-man end-of-season finale.
