Which of the 3 remaining Masters will Djokovic play?

He played the first six, anybody has any idea which of Cincy, Shanghai and Paris he will play?

All.

We can clearly see that djokovic doesn't like being second in the world. And Roger is probably mantaining the #1 spot even after US Open.
Also last year he tried to play davis cup when injured and also played basel and paris.

Imo the guy will play as long as he is physically able to.

Paris is always tricky especially now that there is no break between it and WTF.So i wouldn`t be surprised to see a few guys skipping it.Normally he will play Cinci and Shanghai but regarding the first a lot deppends how he does this week and how he will feel at the end of the tournament.
Playing 3 straight weeks and with fatigue can cause some pain.

What are the rules for skipping Masters? Don't they need to prove that they are injured?

I can see him skipping Paris. He should be entitled to one free skip by now.

I don't know...He played 'only' seven last year and it seemed tight. You really think he will play 8-9?

Re: Which of the 3 remaining Masters will Djokovic play?

Considering Uniqlo is Novak's new sponsor, no way (barring injury) he skips Asian tour, he's playing there for sure. Cincy as well, don't see why he should skip it, it's not like the schedule in Toronto looks to be grueling. Paris perhaps, but too early to say.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

He will play an exhibition with Almagro in Asia, so I think he will play in China, maybe a 500 tournament in Pekin and then the TMS

Can't turn your nose up at $1m or whatever they pay to take part in all nine.

He will play them all, but he might withdraw mid-tournament in Paris, like last year, just to pick up his bonus.
