With this impressive win, Novak won his fifth title of Paris Masters and also added 1,000 ATP Race To London points to his tally. Now he is reigning with 8,945 points in the current ATP points table and just 640 points away from Rafael Nadal (9,585) to become World No. 1 once again.

After winning the lustrous trophy of Paris Masters 2019, Novak Djokovic was head over heels as he was so overwhelmed with his success after a long gap. He expressed his feelings by saying, “I think I had the best serving match of the tournament, and that’s why the match was pretty short. I put him under pressure on the second serve, and from the back of the court, I was solid and not giving him too many opportunities”.
