Paris - Novak Djokovic is closing in on Rafael Nadal's No 1 spot after winning the Shanghai Masters title, according to the ATP Tour rankings released on Monday.

Nadal is struggling with a knee injury and has decided to sit out the current Asian segment of the ATP Tour.

Last week he joined the clean-up operation after deadly flash floods on his native Majorca.

After his 6-3, 6-4 victory over Borna Coric in the Shanghai final on Sunday, Djokovic is just 215 points behind the Spaniard.
