ATP Paris Masters Final: Djokovic beats Murray to clinch 6th Masters title
The Djokovic train steams on unchallenged, as the world number 1 wrapped up the finals of the ATP Paris Masters 6-2, 6-3 in straight sets to win his sixth Masters title of the season. Most probably thought of it as a foregone conclusion, but tuned in anyway to watch the master at work.
The first set began with both being tied at a game apiece, before Djokovic started imposing his will to wrest the set away. Murray would offer some resistance to make it 2-3, but his efforts would go in vain as Djokovic raced away to win the set 6-2.
The next set wouldn’t be as much of a pushover, as Murray showed spirit in equalizing and taking a narrow 3-2 lead at one point. But that would be the closest he would get to cracking Nole's code as the latter would allow just another game out of his grasp. Djokovic closed the set at 6-4, and with it the match.
Djokovic won their seventh meeting of the year 6-2, 6-4 to win the ATP Paris Masters. In the doubles final, Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo beat Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock 2-6,6-3,10-5 to lift their second trophy in France this year, after winning the French Open doubles.
