Which eight players will qualify for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals?

Nadal has played Chung just once before, beating him in Barcelona earlier this year.

The 21-year-old from South Korea is yet to win a title in his career and comes up against Nadal in search of his 76th.

The world No55 lost to David Goffin last week in Basel 6-4 6-1 but beat Misha Zverev 6-0 6-2 in the first round in Paris.

And Nadal has admitted he was sad to miss last week’s event in Switzerland.

He said: “I was sad not to play in Basel. It’s always been a tournament that always supported me.

“Very tough decision but at the same time it was a mandatory decision for me. No chance to keep playing. Too many matches.

"[My] body always needs some rest at this part of the season and that’s the decision I took. That’s all.

“I arrived Friday [in Paris]. I think I’m practising well. I hope to be ready for the action.”
