PARIS (AP) — Novak Djokovic beat defending champion David Ferrer 7-5, 7-5 Sunday to win the Paris Masters for his 17th straight match victory and sixth title of the season.
The second-seeded Serb still has a slim chance to finish the season ranked ahead of No. 1 Rafael Nadal. Djokovic improved to 11-5 against Ferrer, who was looking to become the first player to win back-to-back Paris Masters titles.
"Summer was up and down," Djokovic said, "and now again I'm playing on a very high level and have lots of confidence in myself, in my game. I'm at a good spot at this moment."
Djokovic won the last four games in each set, rallying each time from a 5-3 deficit. Djokovic clinched the victory when the Spaniard sent a forehand into the net. Djokovic hit 34 winners to 15 for Ferrer and won 15 of 18 net points.
"With Nole, if I don't take my chance, it's impossible to beat him," Ferrer said. "In the important moments he's better than me."
Ferrer troubled Djokovic early in the match with his deep groundstrokes and hit a backhand drop shot to break for a 3-2 lead. But Djokovic started playing more aggressively and broke back in the 10th game with a forehand winner down the line.
