LONDON Divock Origi Belgie Shirt , Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- World No. 1 Novak Djokovic won his fourth title at the ATP World Tour Finals here on Sunday without playing any tennis after six-time champion Roger Federer withdrew due to a back injury.

The Serbian also became the first player to win three straight season finale titles since Ivan Lendl from 1985-87.

Djokovic, who also won at Shanghai in 2008, extended his winning streak at the tournament to 14 matches.

"We always give 100 per cent," said Djokovic holding the trophy. "I'm sure that if he could've played, he would've done. So I wish him the best in his recovery.

"I'm not one of those players that celebrate these particular wins, but I have to reflect on the whole season. This trophy is definitely the crown for all the achievements that I had this year. I owe the credit to my team, to all the people who supported me all the way through, and plenty of joy. I'm very happy to be able to stand here and finish with this trophy."

Djokovic Steven Defour Belgie Shirt , who has finished year-end No. 1 in the ATP Rankings for the third time (also 2011-12), completed his season with a 61-8 match record. He has won seven titles from 11 finals.

Federer, 33, made the announcement of withdrawal to fans following the doubles trophy ceremony.

"Unfortunately, I'm not match fit to play the match tonight," said Federer on court. "Clearly I wish it wasn't so. I tried all year to be ready for the ATP World Tour Finals, and I didn't want it to end this way. I tried everything I could last night, also today - painkillers Thomas Meunier Belgie Shirt , treatment, rest, so forth, warm-up, until the very end - but I just can't compete at this level with Novak. It would be too risky at my age to do this right now and I hope you understand.

"I wanted to come out personally and excuse myself. It's been a great week for me. I played some great tennis and I love coming to The O2 and to London, and there's been so many great memories for me here. Congrats of course to Novak, who' s played an amazing season, and an amazing tournament here as well. I hope we can play some more great matches Dries Mertens Belgie Shirt , hopefully next year."

It is only the third time in Federer' s career that he has been forced to withdraw, each time due to a back injury. This is the first walkover in a final in the tournament's 45-year history.

BEIJING, April 25 (Xinhua) -- For Gao Hengrui, 20, going to a bookstore is no longer only about buying books, rather, it is a "culture hunt."

Wine tasting, photo exhibitions Koen Casteels Belgie Shirt , themed lectures -- cultural events like these have made bookstores a "must-go" for young Chinese.

"Bookstores today are not just stores, but public spaces where people can relax," Gao said.

As China's consumer spending on culture grows, the country's bookstores are reinventing themselves. Redefining themselves as "knowledge centers" or "cultural hubs," physical bookstores are reviving an industry in a downturn.

CITIC Books, the book chain owned by Chinese conglomerate CITIC Group, for example, offers value-added services to meet the demand of a niche market.

CITIC Books targets a group of customers it calls "the rising class Simon Mignolet Belgie Shirt ," offering them new products in its bookstores, such as drones and 3D-enabled phones.

To diversify its income streams, CITIC Books also offers customized services to corporate executives, selecting the "right" books to cater to the demand of individuals based on their personal characteristics such as age and interest.

"Bookstores are not just selling products now. In fact, they are selling lifestyle," Fang Xi, general manager of CITIC Books, told Xinhua.

In 2016 Kevin Mirallas Belgie Shirt , CITIC Books' parent company, CITIC Press, generated a net profit of 128 million yuan (about 18.6 million U.S. dollars), 28 percent more than the previous year, according to the company's annual report.

Revenue growth will accelerate as the book chain opens more stores this year, according to Fang. Confident in the company's growth potential, Fang said that CITIC Books plans to open another 60 stores in 2017.

Like CITIC Books, branded bookstores around the country are looking for their own niche market. In Guangzhou Eden Hazard Belgie Shirt , a bookstore operates much like a boutique shop, offering designer accessories and artwork while giving readers space to read. In Beijing, a bookstore features cats, inviting cat lovers worldwide to spend an afternoon with books, coffee and their favorite pets.

What underlies the transformation of physical bookstores is a shift in China's consumption, which is becoming increasingly diversified and culture oriented.

"Not that long ago, big companies in China had all the power to determine what products would be made available to the market," said CITIC Group chairman Chang Zhenming in the company's annual report. "That era is long gone Romelu Lukaku Belgie Shirt , and consumption models have changed to reflect the primacy of customer desire."

Whether it's selling artworks or offering coffee, booksellers have their own way to answer the call.

"The change in bookstore culture exactly reflects what's going on in the economy," Fang said.

Cultural spending in China as a whole is gaining momentum as authorities push the cultural sector. China's 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020), the country's social and economic development blueprint, is attempting to make the culture a "pillar" in the country's economy.

Local governments have also introduced detailed support measures, including rewards and tax incentives, to encourage physical bookstores.

According to a poll conducted by Renmin University of China, the Culture Consumer Index Youri Tielemans Belgie Shirt , a measure of the country's cultural consumption, increased from 73.7 in 2013 to 81.5 in 2015.

With government support and rising demand, publishers like CITIC Books cannot find a better time to innovate.
