Khachanov hammers ailing Zverev in Paris Masters

Russian Karen Khachanov defeated Novak Djokovic with 7-5, 6-4 in Paris Masters final on Sunday, breaking the Serb's 22-match win streak.

Khachanov will now rise to a career-high world No 11 when the rankings are updated on Monday and overtakes Borna Coric as the second alternate for next week's ATP Finals in London. "But I played really well".

"To finish the season like this is really a dream come true".

Djokovic threw everything he could at his opponent in the second set, but it was again Khachanov who found the breakthrough to break once more.

It went down nearly to the wire, and in the end, the final qualifications for the Nitto ATP Finals in London were determined by a loss from one of the hopefuls. I'm just pleased to be in the semis.

"I think that's what I showed against all the top 10 guys". That's the first thing. And what more can I ask for?

"And I saw that my level is there".

The match between two players with a combined 34 Grand Slam titles and 59 Masters titles lived up to expectations as they slugged it out in unrelenting intensity.

In an intense three-set encounter, the 2018 Wimbledon and US Open Champion, Djokovic won with a scoreline of 7-6 (6), 5-7 and 7-6 (3).

Djokovic, who has now won 30 of his past 31 matches dating back to the start of Wimbledon, beat Federer in straight sets to complete his set of nine Masters titles.

"We had epic matches throughout our rivalry but this one definitely ranks as one of the best matches we played", said Djokovic, who is aiming to clinch a fourth title in a row after wins at Cincinnati, the US Open and Shanghai.

"I didn't unfortunately. But I don't want to talk about that".

"When I get to play Roger, I know I have to get the best out of myself in order to win".

'So all the credit to him. "I came here to Paris with no expectations and figuring that I'd just play a match or two, thinking I'd probably lose because I was too exhausted after Basel". But already an established player, a top player. "I'm always excited to play against him, particularly because it's been a long time [since we've played] and I feel I can just go out there and see what happens", Federer said.
