Rafael Nadal ends year as world number one after win over Hyeon Chung

Rafael Nadal will end 2017 as world number one after a second-round win over Hyeon Chung at the Paris Masters.

The Spaniard, who has risen from ninth at the start of the year via French and US Open victories, advanced 7-5 6-3 in one hour and 48 minutes.

“It was impossible for me to think about when you are coming back from a tough time, without playing tennis and with so many injuries,” he said.

Nadal, 31, will play Uruguay’s world number 36 Pablo Cuevas in the last 16.
