Novak Djokovic will not play the Paris Masters next month, saying he needs a break and is ‘mentally exhausted’.

“At the end of the year I will play only two tournaments: Vienna and London,” Djokovic told Mozzart Sports.

“I have played a lot in the last two and a half months. With the addition that I have not been able to go out or travel a lot.

“First because of the restrictions and then because of the quarantine rules in the tournaments. That has left me very exhausted on a mental level.

“This has been a pretty strange season, but I hope to finish it in the first position. That is my goal and what I keep working on.”
