Djokovic to take on Murray in the finals of the Paris Masters
Djokovic avenges French Open defeat against Stan Wawrinka
In June earlier this year Stan Wawrinka had denied Novak Djokovic a title he craves for the most- the French Open. Five months later the world number got his revenge of sorts as he defeated Wawrinka in 3 straights in the semi finals of the Paris Masters. The world number 1 is now riding on a 20 match unbeaten streak and will face Andy Murray for the title clash on Sunday.
Nole loses focus smashes racquets
No player likes losing a point and if you are the best player on the tour then the expectations are a notch higher. In his semi final match against Stan Wawrinka, Djokovic took the opening set 6 games to 3 and was coasting to a straight sets victory after breaking his Swiss counterparts serve to go 2-0 up in the second set. However a lapse of concentration coupled with some trademark bazooka groundstrokes of Wawrinka’s racquet saw the Serb lose 5 games in a row. A frustrated Novak could be seen smashing his racquet against his shoes for which he received an official warning as well. Although Novak was unable to save the second set he managed to regroup himself and bagled the French Open champion in the deciding set.
Murray defeats Ferrer
Britain’s number 1 Andy Murray reached his first Paris Masters 1000 final as he overcame the gritty David Ferrer in the semi finals. The second seed won the last five games of the match to seal victory in one hour 35 minutes. After the match,the 28-year-old Scot said: “I played aggressive tennis and was particularly successful at the net.”
Chance for Murray to end the year as world number 2
Andy Murray has a chance to end 2015 ranked as the second best player on the ATP circuit provided he can overcome Djokovic in Sunday’s final, a task which is easier said than done given the Serbs form this year.
