Novak Djokovic, world number 1, destroyed Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, 6-4, 6-3, in 1 hour and 38 minutes, on his way to his seventh title in Paris, the 40th Masters 1,000 of his career.

The Serbian played his eighteenth consecutive match, and thus confirms his leadership in the ranking in a tournament in which last year he lost in the final, but which becomes his favorite Masters 1,000, in which he accumulates the most wins.

Dimitrov held his first three serves and gave up the fourth, from there Nole grew and the world number 17 saw a lot of mountains to climb. An easy thing for the Sebio, who added the 97th ATP title of his career. The only time Dimitrov, current world number 17, defeated Djokovic in their 12 previous meetings was in the first round of the Madrid Masters, a decade ago.

Djokovic, 36 years old, who returned after almost two months of break, showed that his form is intact, a week before the Masters begins in Turin, which brings together the eight best of the year, the tournament that closes the season, in which he will once again be the clear favorite to win for the seventh time as a teacher, the second in a row.
