The injury proved costly for Alcaraz, who announced on Saturday that he had torn his abdomen and would be out of action for six weeks, ruling him out of both the ATP Finals and the Davis Cup. Although Nadal had a chance to reach the top of the rankings, he said that he was no longer interested in fighting for No. 1 in the world.
“Something I have said for a long time: I will not fight anymore to be number 1,” the 36-year-old said when he arrived at Paris-Bercy. “I did it in the past. I achieved that goal a couple of times in my career and I’ve been very, very happy and proud to have achieved it. But I’m at a point in my tennis career where I’m not fighting to be number 1.”
