New world number one Novak Djokovic sets personal record at Paris Masters

Novak Djokovic vs Sampras Roger Federer's former coach draws comparison

Djokovic, who faces Damir Dzumhur in the third round, will reclaim the top ranking for the first time in two years on Monday.

Djokovic has celebrated in 15 matches, and the last duel being at the Masters in Cincinnati earlier this year.

"I'm obviously very proud of the achievement, but I haven't been really reflecting on that and focusing on that too much because it's the middle of the week", Djokovic told a news conference. "He can play very aggressively and also defend well", said Djokovic.

On the court, Dzumhur suffered a tweak to his lower back when 4-1 down in the opening set. But on the evidence of how well his opponent is playing now, it is unlikely it will be his day when he plays Djokovic in the quarter-final. At the U.S. Open, he retired during his match against Juan Martin del Potro. "But the race is still there", added Djokovic after extending his sequence of consecutive winning sets to 30, passing his previous best mark of 29 from 2015. Tough to receive his missiles. "Of course I know, I'm aware of what's happening, and it's sad, of course". "I prefer not to play". We respect each other.




Cilic, who will guarantee making the cut for London if he downs Djokovic, was ending reigning ATP Finals champion Dimitrov's season.

Djokovic boasts an impressive record against Cilic but the Croat giant can secure his place at the ATP Finals in London with a shock victory. "It's great to play him again". The 32-year-old Mallorcan was due to play his first match since retiring injured in the USA Open semi-finals but fans were left disappointed as he was replaced by Malek Jaziri.

The giant American saved four match points before the 22-year-old Khachanov, who had already staved off two himself, finally threaded a backhand victor past the net-rushing Isner to win after almost two-and-a-half hours of massive hitting.

The 31-year-old has been in top form this week but faces a hard last-eight opponent in Marin Cilic tomorrow. The Serb won the Wimbledon and US Open titles this year, and will now become the first player to start the season outside the top 20 and end up top of the ATP rankings since Marat Safin in 2000.
