Novak Djokovic Knocks Andy Murray Out Of 2015 Paris Masters

Novak Djokovic Knocks Andy Murray Out Of 2015 Paris Masters

novak djokovic knocks andy murray out of paris masters 2015 imagesNovak Djokovic remained red hot on Sunday as the World No. 1 claimed the tenth title of his 2015 season. Djokovic defeated Andy Murray of Scotland in the final of the 2015 Paris Masters. The title marked the 26th Masters Series title of the Serb’s storied career.

With the 6-2, 6-4 victory Djokovic improved to 21-9 heads-up against Murray. Furthermore, the Serbinator continued his sheer dominance of other players ranked in the Top 10 on tour. His 27-4 record against players of that ranking this season demonstrates just how great the difference is between he and the rest of the field at the moment.

Commenting on the Paris final, Djokovic seemed to think that the match hinged on some points in the second set:

“There was couple of games in the second set where Andy started turning things around, so things could have gone different way as they did maybe yesterday against Wawrinka at same stage. But I managed to stay tough. It was, all in all, the best performance of the week, and it came at the right time.”

Djokovic will next contest the ATP World Tour Finals, an event that takes place in London starting on November 15th:

“I’m hoping that I can repeat the kind of performances and success I have had in previous years.”

Murray had never experienced all that much success in Paris. Even a showing in the final was above his standard for the event. He acknowledged that fact while congratulating Djokovic:

“It was a pleasure to play here this week in the beautiful new stadium. Congratulations to Novak. It’s been a great year for him. It’s been a great week for me – first time past the quarter-finals. That’s progress and I hope to be back next year.”

Murray appears to be playing well heading into both the Tour Finals and the Davis Cup finals. In the latter, he is the best hope to bring a championship to the United Kingdom as they will take on David Goffin and Belgium.
