In a first Paris final to feature the top two players in the ATP Rankings since 1990, Djokovic defeated world number two and defending champion Daniil Medvedev.

It took Djokovic two hours and 15 minutes to seal a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 win.

After Djokovic rallied for the 14th time this year from a set down to win, he went to embrace his children – Stefan and Tara – at the end of the court.

The triumph means Djokovic breaks a tie with Rafael Nadal for most Masters 1000 titles.
