Spain's Rafa Nadal made sure he would top the ATP rankings at the end of the season when he beat South Korea's Chung Hyeon 7-5 6-3 in the second round of the Paris Masters on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old will finish a year as world number one for the fourth time, after doing so in 2008, 2010 and 2013.
