Rafael Nadal will miss November’s season-ending ATP Finals in London and have surgery on an ankle injury.

Nadal withdrew from last month’s Paris Masters with an abdominal muscle injury, meaning Novak Djokovic replaced him as world number one.

The Spaniard, 32, said that since he was still suffering with that injury, he would “take advantage of the moment” and have an operation on his ankle.

American John Isner takes Nadal’s place at the eight-player event in London.
