Djokovic is to next square off against Croatian Marin Cilic, who defeated Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 in the round-of-16. He leads the Italian 3-0 in matchups.

The first round of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Paris Masters took place today with a number of participants setting up second round matches against the tournament's top seeds.

"It wouldn't have been good for me nor anyone to return to the court knowing that I wouldn't be able to play my best". "As long as I don't feel like I'm taking a chance on my health prior to London, that's the key as well". "It is going to be a great match".

"I was a bit bumpy". "I would love to be in London, of course", said Nadal, who will wait on making a decision on his participation at the season finale. I did win, so I had the mike, I could talk to the public.
