Nadal told his Facebook followers Tuesday that he would be skipping the October 21-29 event owing to a knee injury.

Roger Federer has fresh hope of finishing 2017 as number one after Rafael Nadal pulled out of the Swiss Indoors in Basel.

Nadal and Federer are once again the top two players on the ATP tour and just squared off in Sunday's final in Shanghai with Federer prevailing for the fifth straight meeting.

Nadal, 31, leads Federer by 1,960 points in the rankings but the 36-year-old Swiss can gain 500 points if he wins at Basel with another 1,000 up for grabs at the Paris Masters.

Nadal's status going forward will impact the the year-end race for No. 1 with Federer trailing by 1,960 points.

In his social media statement, Nadal said he had seen his doctor on his return from China.

The Spaniard says he is suffering from an "over-stressing of the knee" and has made a decision to listen to doctors' orders and not compete in Switzerland next week.

"After two great weeks in China, with the title in Beijing and the final in Shanghai it is time for some rest".

For now, Nadal and Federer are slated to play all three events, with Basel beginning next week.

"I want to send a special message to the many tennis fans in Switzerland which have always shown great support and respect also on my matches with Roger".

Federer fired 10 aces, and the 19-time Grand Slam winner's 94th career title cut his deficit against Nadal to 23-15. "After seeing his team doctor in Barcelona, the World No. 1 sadly had to pull out of the Swiss Indoors Basel".
