Ferrer wins maiden Masters title

6:45 pm on 6 November 2012

The Spaniard David Ferrer has won his maiden Masters tennis title, beating the Polish giant-killer Jerzy Janowicz 6-4 6-3 in the Paris final.

The fourth seed was too consistent for the 21-year-old world number 69, who had previously beaten five players from the top 20, but gradually ran out of steam in the final.

Ferrer is now in London for the World Tour finals.

Janowicz, who started the year outside the top 200, has broken into the top 30 following the tournament - he's now ranked 26th in the world, up a startling 43 places.
