    Novak Djokovic's already brilliant season took on another dimension when the world number one became the first man to win six Masters titles in a calendar year by dismissing Andy Murray 6-2 6-4 in Paris.

    The Serbian won three of the four grand slam titles - Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open - and has already made sure he will finish 2015 as number one in the ATP rankings. He heads into the November 15-22 World Tour finals in London beaming with confidence, having won his last 22 matches.

    "I am obviously very proud and very happy to win this title again, it's a great tournament and all the best players in the world were here," Djokovic said at the court side.

    Djokovic, the first man with four Bercy titles and also the first to win three in succession, was in another league against a sorry Murray, the second seed.

    Djokovic played in all the Masters finals this season, winning the first three in Indian Wells, Miami and Monte Carlo, then prevailing in Rome and Shanghai.

    He faltered at the last hurdle in Cincinnati and Montreal, where he was defeated by Murray. He did not take part in the Madrid Masters.
