Djokovic wins in Paris

6:39 am on 16 November 2009

Novak Djokovic of Serbia has secured back-to-back ATP tennis titles by edging battling Frenchman Gael Monfils in 3 sets in a thrilling Paris Masters final.

The win was the first for Djokovic in the Masters Series this year following four runner-up finishes and it will send him into the season-ending ATP Tour World Finals in London next week as the favourite.

But it remains to be seen just how much his efforts in Paris this week, and throughout the year, have taken out of him after he completed a tour-leading 94th match of the season.
