What's Novak Djokovic's Next Stop? It Certainly Won't Be the Shanghai Masters

World No.1 Novak Djokovic has announced his withdrawal from the upcoming Shanghai Masters, which is scheduled to run from October 4-15, 2023.

The 24-time Grand Slam champion announced on Sunday that he would be withdrawing from the ATP 1000 event, after already announcing he would be skipping the China Open in Beijing the week prior to Shanghai.

Djokovic sends message to fans, could play at Paris Masters

"Over the years, some of the best support I receive anywhere in the world is in China. Shanghai has always been one of my favorite tournaments in the season,” he wrote on social media.

"I will be missing my #NoleFam in China. I hope that I can come back to China in the future and play in front of all of you again.”

The Serbian's final opportunity to take to the courts before the year-ending ATP Finals in Turin could be at either or both of the ATP 500 events in Basel and Vienna. Additionally, the 36-year old could also make an appearance at the Paris Masters event at the end of October.
