13-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal said No. 1 place in the ATP Rankings is not my goal, as he wants to win more titles on the ATP World Tour and hopes to finish the season on high mode, which will make me more stronger for the 2014 season.

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal has been well preparing for the competitive tournaments by end of the season at Paris Masters from 28th October and ATP World Tour Championship Finals from 4th November. Nadal said it is not important for me to stay at No. 1 or No. 2 in the ATP Rankings by end of the season, but he is willing to finish the season on a high mode. He added it makes me stronger for the new season and finishing the season with a great feeling.

27-year-old Spaniard has been working hard in training session along with Uncle Toni Nadal in Manacor, where he targets to clinch Paris Masters and ATP World Tour Finals. Nadal said no. 1 in the ATP Rankings will be special for every player, but being top ranked player doesn’t make me happy. Rafael Nadal was schedule to come back to court in the 2013 BNP Paribas Open next week, where he is likely to play his opening round match on Tuesday or Wednesday at the Palais omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris.

Nadal might face tough challenge against World No. 2 Novak Djokovic in Paris, where both the players are going to lead men’s singles at the BNP Paribas Open next week.
