2018 Paris Masters Prize Money How much can Roger Federer Nadal earn

The 31-year-old Serb has returned to his brutal best this season with Grand Slam wins at Wimbledon and the U.S Open, along with ATP Masters triumphs in Cincinnati and Shanghai.

Djokovic will play Bosnian Damir Dzumhur in the third round.

When asked about his prospects for London - a tournament he has already missed six times because of injury - Nadal replied "I am very sorry but I can not answer you".

The victory extended Djokovic's streak to 30 consecutive sets, surpassing his previous best effort of 29 achieved in 2015.

Djokovic, who will reclaim the No. 1 ranking next week regardless of how he does here, faces Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals.

"It's not the end of the season".

It is huge news for Djokovic, who as recently as the Australian Open earlier in the year was not sure if he would ever truly recover from his persistent elbow injury.

This latest injury will cost him his No. 1 ranking, which goes back to longtime rival Novak Djokovic next week. Rafa is in the race. John Isner's hopes of also making the London finals received a potentially fatal blow when he was beaten 6-4 6-7 (9) 7-6 (8) in by rising Russian Karen Khachanov. "They contacted me too", said Federer.

Cilic, the fifth seed, secured his quarter-final ticket with a 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 defeat of Grigor Dimitrov.

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

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are yet to make a decision on whether they will play an exhibition match in Saudi Arabia, both players told reporters in Paris on Sunday.

It helped him to maintain the remarkable spell of form that has seen him rise from number 22 in June to the top of the game again.

World number 57 Herbert was beaten by Kazakhstan's Mikail Kukushkin in three sets (3-6, 6-3, 7-5) while Jeremy Chardy, ranked 40th, lost 6-4, 6-4 to Spain's Fernando Verdasco.

Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev saved all four break points he faced in beating Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-2.

Raonic was scheduled to face Roger Federer in a second-round match on Wednesday.

So far this week, there have been five retirements and two walkovers as the toil of the long season begins to bite. It's just a very powerful style of tennis, " Djokovic said.
