Djokovic reaches Paris Masters quarterfinals; Cilic wins

With the absence of Nadal from the tournament, Serbian Novak Djokovic, now world No. 2, is set to take the top spot of the ATP rankings, to be released on Monday.

Nadal has not played since retiring hurt in the semi-finals of the US Open against Juan Martin del Potro, where he was hit by a knee injury.

Djokovic is seeking to reclaim the top ranking from Rafael Nadal at a tournament Nadal has never won.

The Bosnian had troubles with the lower back and he was forced to retire despite the fact he managed to play a few more games after receiving a medical timeout at 1-5 in the opening set.

Nadal did not reveal if he will play in next week's ATP Tour Finals in London.

Djokovic will replace Rafael Nadal as the world's top player on Monday after a two-year absence.

The record 20-time Grand Slam victor Federer, who won his 99th career title at the Swiss Indoors last Sunday, will next face 13th-seeded Fabio Fognini of Italy. The 32-year-old Nadal has enjoyed a successful year, clinching his 17th Grand Slam title by winning an 11th French Open in June, after triumphs in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Rome.

It also left Paris ticketholders feeling frustrated after Roger Federer's later match with Milos Raonic was called off after Canadian Raonic also pulled out injured. "I would love to be in London, of course", said Nadal, who will wait on making a decision on his participation at the season finale.

Having missed the second half of the 2017 season because of his troublesome elbow, Djokovic returned at the start of this year but the injury flared up again at the Australian Open during a shock defeat by South Korean youngster Chung Hyeon.

Calling a halt in play, Djokovic went over to the struggling fan while gesturing to the umpire, as Sousa also held up his racket in a signal to stop.

"But I haven't been really reflecting on that, and I haven't been really focusing on that too much because it's the middle of the week".

In the quarter-finals, Khachanov will meet Germany's fourth seed Alexander Zverev, who took 80 minutes to overpower and finally subdue the scurrying defiance of Argentina's Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-2.

Cilic trailed 5-4 during the tiebreaker but won both points on Dimitrov's serve before serving out the first set.
