Rafael Nadal secures No. 1 ranking by advancing at Paris Masters

Rafael Nadal

Without really shine, a protégé of Carlos Moya Toni Nadal was defeated in the trap, Chung-Hyeon in two sets (7-5, 6-3), after not evil suffered in the first set.

Nadal went into the match knowing victory would give him an unassailable lead as world number one over old rival Roger Federer, after the Swiss legend withdrew before the start of the tournament.

With his victory of the day Rafael Nadal secures his place as number 1 in the world in 2017... and this for the 4th time!

Speaking after victory on Wednesday, the Spaniard said: "I'm very, very happy for everything".

It marks the conclusion of what has been a remarkable season of renaissance for Nadal, who overcame wrist problems from previous year to win the French Open and US Open - his 15th and 16th grand slam titles.

"It's been an awesome year", Nadal said.

Nadal's win against 54th-ranked Chung now means Federer will be unable to catch the Spaniard, regardless of how the pair fare in London later this month. "One year ago for sure I never dreamed about being world number one at end of the season so it's something that means a lot".

The 21-year-old Chung put up a courageous fight at the Bercy Arena, but a fired-up Nadal proved too hot to handle.

Nadal, who has never won the tournament, was a break behind in the opening set before stepping up a gear to set up a third round meeting with Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas.

Also, fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev lost to Robin Haase 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, and ninth-seeded John Isner beat Diego Schwartzman 7-6 (2), 6-7 (11), 6-3.

But Kevin Anderson, the man beaten by Nadal in the final of the US Open, can no longer qualify after a 5-7 6-4 7-5 defeat by Fernando Verdasco.
