I enjoy that and I feel myself competitive but… I just can follow the recommendations of the doctor. I can talk about a pain that bothers me overtime that I serve.
Our champ needed to beat Verdasco to hold Djokovic at bay, but the Serb will now return to the No. Rafa is fourth match on Center Court.
This will be the 20th tour-level meeting between Rafa and Fer in a head-to-head. I am happy to be here. I am having better feelings on court.
I am practising a little bit more every day. And, yeah, trying to improve the positive feelings.
The pair will enter the main draw on Monday with Nadal just 35 points ahead of his Serbian rival in the ATP rankings — 7, to 7, — and the equation is simple enough; whoever lasts longer in Paris will be the number one by the end of the week.
So if they both get knocked out in the same round, then Nadal will hold on to the top spot going into the Nitto ATP finals in London but if the Spaniard loses in any round that the Serb successfully negotiates, then Djokovic will take over.
And if they both progress to a final showdown in Paris? It means Novak Djokovic, 31, will replace him as world number one when the rankings are released on Monday.
The Serb will lead the rankings for the first time in two years, with Briton Andy Murray having taken top spot from him in Paris in November Earlier on Wednesday, world number three Roger Federer made it through to the last 16 without playing when Milos Raonic pulled out with an elbow injury.
Djokovic, a time Grand Slam champion, was ranked 21st going into this year's Wimbledon and will become the first player to be outside the world's top 20 and the world number one in the same season since Russia's Marat Safin in Spaniard Nadal, 32, was due to make his comeback after nearly two months out with a knee injury that led to him retiring from his US Open semi-final.
I want to keep playing tennis for a couple of years, so I have to do the logical thing. Earlier, Kei Nishikori had a straightforward victory over Adrian Mannarino and John Isner served up 33 aces as he beat Mikhail Kukushkin Japanese year-old Nishikori did not face a single break point as he defeated home crowd favourite Mannarino in one hour and 27 minutes to progress.
On Court One, Isner's powerful serving ensured he was not broken at all but wasted opportunities meant he struggled to get past Kazakh Kukushkin.
The American's serve only let him down at the second-set tie-break, as the world number 54 forced a deciding set.
That went the distance too but this was a different story for Isner, who won early points against the Kazakh's serve to take the match.
In , Djokovic's level of play started dropping due to complications with an elbow injury. In January, he finally underwent right elbow surgery and, by the time he reached the French Open in June, his ranking had dropped to No.
I always feel like I can improve, but I feel like this is a very high level. Djokovic has a bye into the second round in Paris.
Djokovic's third Shanghai title moved him onto 72 for his career, eight behind Nadal. Roger Federer collected his 99th title after winning the Swiss Indoors on Sunday.
Nadal, meanwhile, is optimistic his right knee has recovered well. He retired in the semifinals of the U.
Open against Juan Martin del Potro in early September. He then skipped the Asia swing to recover, missing tournaments in Beijing and Shanghai.
