Nadal ends year as No 1 for fifth time

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal was confirmed as the year-end world No 1 for the fifth time after the ATP released its season-closing rankings on Monday.

The Spaniard did not make it beyond the group stage of last week’s ATP Finals in London but Novak Djokovic’s failure to reach the semifinals meant Nadal closed the year with 9 985 points, 840 clear of the Serb.

Nadal draws level with rivals Djokovic and Roger Federer, who have also finished the year in top spot five times, and moves one behind six-time end-of-year No 1 Pete Sampras.

Nadal and Djokovic have been this year’s two dominant players after winning two Majors each.
