Unseeded Khachanov stuns Djokovic to win Paris crown

Djokovic, who will replace an injury-plagued Nadal at the top of the rankings on Monday, now leads Federer 25-22 overall and has not lost to the Swiss since 2015.

"And in general, it's a breakthrough season".

Chasing his 100th career title after winning the Swiss Indoors last Sunday, the 20-time Grand Slam champion was hardly troubled. "And maybe I'm not crying, but still I'm really happy".

"I'll probably be able to speak more profoundly about it when the season is done and hopefully if I get to finish as No. 1".

Federer won 28/29 first serves, saved the only break point he faced, and took full advantage of the fast courts to attack the front of the court with plenty of success. He deserves it. He´s a young player up and coming.

The Russian player, who named Marat Safin, a former Russian tennis star as his hero and inspiration, was born in Moscow on 21 May 1996.

"I think that was the problem with Kei today".

"I'm satisfied of course and I'm going to be No. 1 tomorrow". That's the first thing. "I told him to tell him to keep it down a little bit because he was going a little bit too much over the edge".

"And I saw that my level is there". "Most of the break points he just served well, and played great shots".

Djokovic, who beat Khachanov on the way to winning the Wimbledon title this summer, is seeking a record-extending fifth Paris Masters title.

Thiem, the world No 8 who on Friday had booked his place in this month's ATP Finals in London, was out of sorts and seemed rushed by the depth and power of Khachanov's groundstrokes. The victory required just one break in each set, 6-4, 6-4, and 79 minutes-which was just as well, given that the clock was approaching 11pm and his semi-final against Djokovic begins at 4.30pm Saturday.

Djokovic, victor of the Wimbledon and US Open championships this year, lost his cool in the second set of his last-eight tie after an outburst at his own box, before breaking his racket in the third.

Djokovic and Federer have clashed at all four Grand Slam tournaments and eight of the nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events.

Djokovic outlasted Federer in an energy-sapping classic that lasted over three hours on Saturday, and the Serb began to look tired as he dropped serve to a fall behind early in the second set.

"I didn't unfortunately. But I don't want to talk about that", Djokovic said.
