RAFAEL NADAL will finish the year at the top of the tree after winning the second round of ATP Paris Masters against his South Korean opponent.

This result sees Nadal progress to the last 16, but more importantly for the Spaniard, finish the year as the number one for the fourth time. "One year ago for sure I never dreamed about being world No1 at end of the season so it's something that means a lot".

Nadal celebrates his victory and said: "I never dreamed of being world No.1 at the end of the season".

Sky Sports will have the action from the final Masters 1000 tournament of the year in Paris all this week.

It marks the conclusion of what has been a remarkable season of renaissance for Nadal, who overcame wrist problems from previous year to win the French Open and US Open - his 15th and 16th grand slam titles.

'I'm happy to achieve the year-end world No. 1 here in Paris'.

"I am on a good dynamic, playing well the whole season", Nadal, who has only won two of his 75 ATP titles indoors, added. It has been an awesome year.

After conceding an early break, Nadal looked to have turned things around when he led 5-2 in the opening set only for Chung to level up.

Nadal will next face Pablo Cuevas in the last 16 on Thursday, after the unseeded Uruguayan edged out Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-7 (5/7), 7-6 (7/1), 6-2.

In remaining first-round play, Britain's Kyle Edmund rallied from a set and 3-0 down and saved match point before beating Evgeny Donskoy of Russian Federation 5-7, 7-6 (7), 6-3.

But the 31-year-old Spaniard - who is also trying to balance the delicate political situation in his native country with his status as an global sportsman - refused to hype up his potential coronation.

Although Nadal has had an impressive year winning the French and US Open championships, he has yet to beat Federer, who won Wimbledon, in 2017.

But he roared past the competition at Roland Garros before landing his 16th Slam in NY and he will now look to end his season on a high in Paris-Bercy before heading to London for the ATP World Tour Finals.
