Paris, France - Novak Djokovic managed to blow past local favorite Gael Monfils to win his first ever Paris Masters title, making this his second consecutive win after defeating number one player Roger Federer on the Swiss Masters Indoors on Sunday. Another recent significant victory was against Rafael Nadal in the semifinals in Paris. He is expected to be a strong favorite come November when he defends his title at the ATP Tour World Finals.novak djokovic

Third-seeded Djokovic won with a 6-2, 5-7, 7-6 (3) score, but the win was not an easy one for the Serb player. He won the first set, although it was tough going for the following sets, despite the fact that he also won the second set. Monfils upped his game on the later sets, however, leveling at 3-3 and made a return winner with a 6-5 lead.

“It was unbelievably difficult,” the Serb player remarked. “Gael was very unpredictable and he was hitting the ball very good.”

In the final set, a stumble from Monfils helped Djokovic break in the fourth game. The Serb double faulted on Monfils’ break point on the seventh game, before Monfils leveled at 4-4 to force a tie breaker. A double fault by Monfils on the first match point gave the title to Djokovic.
