PARIS: former World No 1, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic will miss the top 10 spot for the first time in more than 10 years.

Djokovic, the 12-time Grand Slam champion has facing injuries and has not played since Wimbledon in July due to an elbow injury.

Meanwhile, Juan Martin del Potro’s win over Robin Haase in the Paris Masters third round on Thursday ensured that Djokovic will be ranked lower than 10th for the first time since March 2007.

The 30-year-old is hoping to make his return at the exhibition World Tennis Championship at Abu Dhabi in December.
