Novak Djokovic clinched a record-extending seventh Paris Masters trophy and a 40th Masters title in total on Sunday, after beating unseeded Grigor Dimitrov 6-4 6-3 in straightforward fashion.
It is the 36-year-old, world number one’s sixth title of 2023, which includes three Grand Slam crowns and the Masters trophy in Cincinnati.
Next up for Djokovic will be the season-ending ATP Tour Finals in Turin, where he will be heavy favourite to lift a record-breaking seventh title and be confirmed as the year-end number one player in the world for a record-extending eighth time.
Intermittent weather had earlier forced a reschedule of the semifinals between No.1 Aryna Sabalenka and No.2 Iga Swiatek, although on Sunday. No.5 Jessica Pegula saw off No.3 Coco Gauff in the first semifinal 6-1, 6-2.
