Nole had the confirmation that he will be the new world no.1 after the end of this week following the withdraw of Rafael Nadal from the competition. The Serbian legend has defeated Joao Sousa 7-5 6-1 in his first match, and he is one of the top favorites to win the title. The biggest question mark for Novak is his fitness as he had a minor illness on Tuesday.
Ranked no.52, Damir was struggling a lot before Paris after he recorded 5 consecutive losses. However, he managed to have a good run in Paris where he defeated Peter Gojowczyk and Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets.
