Novak Djokovic emerged victorious in the finals of the Paris Masters on Sunday, beating David Ferrer to the tune of 7-5. 7-5. The title was the third in the row for Djokovic, who won at the Shanghai Masters in October, and the 40th in his career.

Djokovic discussed his match afterwards:

It has been a very difficult match for me. It has been very hard against one of the best competitors on tour, someone who never gives up. I have been patient, I played aggressive. I am very happy with this win (Reuters).

The win keeps Djokovic in contention for claiming the No. 1 spot in the world, a position currently held by Rafael Nadal. Djokovic touched on his chase for the top ranking:

It doesn’t just depend on me, it depends on Rafa. It’s very important for me to concentrate on myself and let things take care of themselves. I’ve taken a lot of confidence from this week (BBC).

Djokovic will next compete in the ATP World Tour Finals, which begin in London on Monday.
