ATP Paris Masters Final: Djokovic vs Murray

Murray outplayed as Djokovic wins again in 2015

It was a match that many pundits were looking forward to seeing, two of the world’s best players going for the title in Paris. In truth Djokovic was the only player who really turned up as Murray wasn’t at the races in a match that lasted under 2 hours. The Serbian was just too consistent for the Scot and Murray couldn’t really get a foothold in the match as was the dominance of Djokovic in the match.

Djokovic played a solid first set in which he was never truly tested by the Scot, Murray was always trying to impose himself on the rallies but he was either dumping the ball in the net or hitting his shots wide of the tramlines. The set was over in the blink of an eye as Djokovic raced through to win the opener 6-2 in a set that lasted 42 minutes. Murray only hit 6 errors but his unforced error count was 19 just for the first set and you can’t give the Serbian player so many free points if you’re to have any chance of defeating him.

Murray would again be put under pressure by Djokovic as he was forced to cling onto his serve again to keep his nose in front at the start of the second set. It wouldn’t take long for the world’s current best player to break Murray as Djokovic’s consistently was too much for the Scot. Murray didn’t get too downbeat as he was able to break straight back to love to at least give him at chance at pushing the set in his favour. Unfortunately for the Scot he was unable to stay with Djokovic for the remainder of the match and a forehand long was the nail on the coffin for Murray.

Djokovic was able to get the set done and dusted after that and with it he secured the Paris Masters for a fourth time with a score of 6-2 6-4. The Serbian will now head to London to compete in the ATP World Tour Finals with a winning streak of 22 to his name. His form at the moment suggests only Federer or maybe even an all guns blazing Nadal could defeat him at the moment as Djokovic is starting to look unbeatable at present. The season ender starts on Sunday and no one will be looking forward to facing him with the form he is in at the moment.
