World number 10 John Isner will replace the 17-time at the showpiece event in London.

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.

Nadal confirmed Monday he would skip the end-of-season finals in London to undergo ankle surgery. Djokovic, Federer, Zverev, Anderson, Cilic, Thiem, Nishikori and Isner are the eight aspirants to win the Finals.

"Unfortunately, I had the abdominal problem in Paris last week and, in addition, I have a free body in the ankle joint that has to be removed in the operating room today".

The problem we discovered a very long time, and she would occasionally stop me from playing.

Because Nadal's season is over, Djokovic is assured of finishing the year atop the ATP rankings for the fifth time.

Novak Djokovic's return to the world number one spot, just five months after slumping to his lowest ranking in 12 years, leaves little doubt that he is one of the sport's greats.

"This way I hope to be in full condition for the next season", he said, and thanked his supporters.

Rafael Nadal says he needs an operation on his right ankle and will miss the ATP Finals in London this month.

The draw for the hard-court tournament takes place on Monday live on The One Show on BBC One from 19:00 GMT.

Furthermore, Djokovic enjoys a lifetime 25-22 record over Federer and 27-25 against Nadal.

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.

Back-to-back Australian Opens followed in 2012 and 2013, although three heart-breaking final defeats kept the French Open frustratingly out of reach until 2016, when his breakthrough win at Roland Garros allowed him to complete his career Slam.

Once again we find ourselves wondering what shape Nadal will be in for next season.
