Rafael Nadal has arrived in Paris once again, this time to win his maiden Paris Masters title. The Spaniard won his 13th French Open title just a few weeks back on the red clay in Paris, defeating Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the final.

The Spaniard posted a message on Social Media confirming his return to Paris. The Spaniard expressed his happiness of being back in Paris after his French Open triumph earlier this month.

Rafael Nadal aims for a strong end to the season

Rafael Nadal will hope to end the season on a strong note with good performances in the indoor hardcourt tournaments. The Spaniard has never won the Paris Bercy Masters and with Djokovic not being part of the draw, opens up a good opportunity for Nadal to add another title to his tally. Last year, Nadal had to withdraw from the Paris Masters just before the semifinals after suffering an abdominal injury.

Rafael Nadal can win up to 650 points at the Paris Bercy Masters, which will confirm his year end ranking at World number 2, ahead of Dominic Thiem. The Spaniard decided to skip the Vienna Open this week, and instead decided to return to his beloved city of Paris. The World Number 2 is also expected to play at Nitto ATP Finals later in November, although there is no official confirmation on the same. Nadal has also never lifted the title at the O2 Arena in London.

Rafael Nadal had declined the wildcard to play in the Sofia Open which confirms Djokovic’s year end ranking as number one. Nadal will be looking forward to add a third title of the year to his tally in Paris next week as he has already lifted the Rio Open and the French Open trophy earlier this year.
