"Although this knee pain is nothing new to me, we have decided together my medical and technical team that I won't be playing the Asian swing in Beijing and Shanghai".

With Federer cutting the number of tournaments he plays - the Swiss only took part in events in Shanghai, Basel and the ATP finals after last year's U.S. Open - Djokovic is now favourite to unseat Nadal as world number one.

Nadal is the defending champion in Beijing, where he beat Nick Kyrgios in the final past year.
