Emirates ATP Singles Rankings have been updated, and as of October 14, Rafael Nadal‘s No. 1 status remains unchanged at 11,520 points. Novak Djokovic defended his points in Beijing and Shanghai. In the Race to London, Rafa still holds a lead over the rest of the contenders; however, Novak Djokovic has bridged the gap somewhat with his wins in Asia.
Rafa has still not secured the Year End No. 1 spot. He does not have any points to defend for the rest of the year, being that he missed this part of the tour completely last year. This goal, therefore, is well attainable, as long as Rafa gains points in the rest of the tournaments coming up that he has entered. He is looking to win Basel and another Masters 1000 in Paris. Here’s hoping Rafa secures the spot sooner rather than later. Vamos Rafa!
