Following his third US Open title, Novak Djokovic has narrowed the gap with Rafael Nadal for the No. 1 ranking to just 1,035 ranking points.
With two Masters events and the ATP Finals (combined worth 3,500), and Nadal dealing with a bad knee, Djokovic could very well end of finishing the year on top.
Juan Martin del Potro moved up ahead of Roger Federer, but both are virtually out of the No. 1 hunt, though will both qualify for London.
Kevin Anderson, Dominic Thiem, John Isner and Kei Nishikori appear to be right now fighting for the last two London berths.
Grand Slam winners Nadal, Djokovic and Federer have all clinched London spots.

In the 52-week rankings, Djokovic is still third, but because he has no points to defend the rest of the season, he’ll be closing the gap rapidly as Nadal drops final points from Shanghai (600) and title points from Beijing (500) while Djokovic only adds to his total.
