Djokovic to finish year as No. 1

  • Novak Djokovic has secured the year-end world No. 1 ranking for a second consecutive year.

    The last player to accomplish the feat was Roger Federer, from 2004-07.

    Djokovic lost his top ranking to Federer in July following a 53-week reign.

    According to the ATP, Federer will drop points from his 2011 title wins at the Swiss Indoors and Paris Masters. He lost in the Swiss Indoors final on Sunday to Juan Martin del Potro, and later pulled out of next week's Paris tournament.

    Federer will not be able to earn enough points to finish the year ahead of Djokovic.

    Djokovic will officially be crowned No. 1 during a presentation at the World Tour Finals in London next week.
