PARIS (AFP) – Russia’s Karen Khachanov clinched the biggest win of his career on Sunday with a 7-5, 6-4 upset of Novak Djokovic to claim the Paris Masters title.

Khachanov became the third different first-time winner of a Masters tournament this year – joining Juan Martin del Potro and John Isner – and denied Djokovic a fourth title in a row ahead of his return to world number one on Monday.

‘’To finish the season like this is really a dream come true,’’ said Khachanov, who will rise to a career high of 12th when the latest rankings are published on Monday.
