The world number two is also now likely to take his place at the ATP Finals in London.

Rafael Nadal will prolong his season by playing at the Paris Masters next month.

The world number two said after winning his 20th grand-slam title at the French Open earlier this month that he was unsure whether he would be back on a match court in 2020.

But Nadal posted a picture on Twitter on Tuesday of him training indoors at his academy in Majorca and the accompanying message revealed he will return to the French capital for the final Masters event of the season, beginning on November 2.

The Spaniard wrote: "It's indoor season time... this picture was earlier today practicing at the @rnadalacademy... And yes... getting ready for #ParisBercy."

Nadal's appearance in Paris also makes it much more likely that he will take his place at the ATP Finals, which is being held in London for the final time.

It is the biggest title the 34-year-old has never won and, by playing indoors, he has the chance to put some pressure on Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings.
