Novak Djokovic to skip 2020 Paris Masters

In the latest interview, Novak Djokovic indicated that he should skip the 2020 Paris Masters and focus on other tournaments during the rest of the 2020 season.

Novak Djokovic is 2019 Paris Masters champion, and due to the new rankings system, which was temporarily created due to Coronavirus pandemic stopping the ATP calendar, the Serbian can't add any points to the ATP Rankings in Paris. Therefore, he has decided to play the Erste Bank Open in Vienna and the ATP Finals in London as reported by Mozzart Sport.

"By the end of the year, I will play in two more tournaments, in Vienna and London. I haven't been to Vienna for 15 years, that tournament wasn't in my original plan, but I'm really looking forward to it. This has been a strange season and I hope to finish it in the first place. That is my goal and I am working on it, "said Djokovic in Visoko, where he spent the last three days.

"I played a lot in the last two and a half months, and I could not go out, to move first because of restrictions, and then because of quarantine rules in tournaments. It exhausted me quite mentally. I recovered here."

Withdrawal of the world number 1 has not been confirmed by the Paris Masters yet, however, it is expected that Djokovic won't play Masters in France this year.
