Novak Djokovic wins tennis record sixth title in Paris Masters

Djokovic beat defending champion Daniil Medvedev 4-6 6-3 6-3 to win a record sixth Paris title and 37th Masters 1000 crown, moving clear of Rafael Nadal. Russia's Medvedev, 25, broke Djokovic's serve twice as he took the first set.

But the Serb, who will end the year as number one for a record seventh time, eased through the final two sets.

Loose games from Medvedev, who denied the Serb a calendar Grand Slam in September at the US Open, handed Djokovic two crucial breaks in the deciding set.

Both Djokovic and Medvedev will play the season-ending ATP Tour Finals in Turin, starting on 14 November, where Medvedev will attempt to retain his title.

Elsewhere, Great Britain's Alfie Hewett won the singles title at the season-ending Wheelchair Masters in Orlando.

The 23-year-old beat Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina in three sets in the final, having won the doubles title with Gordon Reid on Saturday.
