Novak Djokovic Moves Forward At 2015 Paris Masters

novak djokovic moves forward at paris masters 2015 tennis imagesTennis fans watching the third round of the 2015 Paris Masters saw completion on Thursday. Eight matches were featured in the men’s draw, a round where the final unseeded players were eliminated from the tournament. The third round also marked the end of Roger Federer’s 2015 Paris Masters campaign as the Swiss Maestro suffered an upset.

Here are all the line scores from Thursday:

Singles – Third Round

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) d [14] Gilles Simon (FRA) 63 75
[2] Andy Murray (GBR) d [16] David Goffin (BEL) 61 60
[13] John Isner (USA) d [3] Roger Federer (SUI) 76(3) 36 76(5)
[4] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) d Viktor Troicki (SRB) 64 75
[5] Tomas Berdych (CZE) d [9] Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA) 63 64
[10] Richard Gasquet (FRA) d [6] Kei Nishikori (JPN) 76(3) 41 Ret. (side)
[7] Rafael Nadal (ESP) d [11] Kevin Anderson (RSA) 46 76(6) 62 – Saved 1 M.P.
[8] David Ferrer (ESP) d Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) 67(4) 61 64

In regard to the Federer ‘upset,’ I don’t know that a lot should be read into it. Firstly, Isner only won the match by the minimum and the American entered the third round in Paris a lot better rested than his counterpart. Federer, as his fans will recall, won ATP Basel last week; he had to be feeling some effects from playing so much tennis in a short period of time. Accordingly, he should be as tough as ever when the ATP World Tour Finals roll around in mid-November.

Andy Murray, with a straight sets victory that only included one lost game against David Goffin, is certainly looking great to make the Paris final. Novak Djokovic remains the outright tournament favorite however, as he dispatched of Gilles Simon.

Kei Nishikori, a player who has not been at 100% for a little while now, is looking for questionable. His retirement to Richard Gasquet has to be concerning for those looking forward to him competing in London later this month. Nishikori’s injury is suspected to be a neck one, according to IBN Live.

Friday’s matches from Paris are below, with the Nadal/Wawrinka contest being one to watch.

COURT CENTRAL start 2:00 p.m.

[10] Richard Gasquet (FRA) vs. [2] Andy Murray (GBR)
[8] David Ferrer (ESP) vs. [13] John Isner (USA)

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs. [5] Tomas Berdych (CZE)

Not Before 8:30 pm
[4] Stan Wawrinka (SUI) vs. [7] Rafael Nadal (ESP)
