Novak Djokovic all-but confirmed as year-end world number one as Rafael Nadal rejects Sofia

Novak Djokovic is all but confirmed as year-end world number one after Rafael Nadal reportedly rejected a Sofia wildcard.

Djokovic was already incredibly strongly positioned to win what will be a record-equalling sixth year-end crown, and he strengthened those credentials by beating Borna Coric in Vienna on Wednesday.

Nadal, though, could have had a chance to disrupt things had he added Sofia to his schedule but, according to Sport Klub, he has rejected that opportunity.

On his win over Coric in Vienna, Djokovic said: “The first set he served with high quality and precision.

“I played a little bit passive in the first set and I think he was dictating the play,”

“I’m pleased with my serving in both sets, especially the second. I started swinging through the ball better and playing better.

“I was there, I was fighting and I was waiting for chances when they were presented.”

Djokovic will become the oldest year-end world number one in history, replacing Nadal, and will join Pete Sampras on six.
