Novak Djokovic continues to extend his legendary career, and this Sunday, he added to his list of achievements with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in the final of the Paris Masters 1000. 

It was his seventh title of the tournament and took his career tally to 97, closing the gap on American Jimmy Connors' 109 titles and Swiss' Rogers Federer's 103.

In a match that lasted just 98 minutes, Djokovic dominated Dimitrov to claim his 40th Masters 1000 title and further distance himself from Rafael Nadal, who has 36 Masters 1000 titles and is targeting to return for the Australian Open.

With this win, 'Nole' begins his 398th week as the world's top-ranked tennis player, with a remarkable 400-week milestone within his grasp. In addition to his recent Paris Masters victory, Djokovic has enjoyed a stellar season, winning three of the four major titles (Australian Open, Roland Garros, and US Open), with Wimbledon being the only tournament to elude him, where he was beaten in a five-set match by Spain's Carlos Alcaraz.

"I go for all kinds of records, all the ones I can break.. I've never had a problem saying that, and that's why people don't like me. I've always tried to stay true to what I believe in", explained one of the greatest players in tennis history, and arguably the best.

Djokovic will take a break this week as he prepares for the ATP Finals at the Pala Alpitour in Turin, Italy, from 12-19 November. Djokovic will be joined by the current world number two, Carlos Alcaraz, Russia's Daniil Medvedev (number 3), Italy's Jannik Sinner (4), Russia's Andrei Rublev (5), Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas (6), Germany's Alexander Zverev (7), and the Denmark's Holger Rune, who finished with 3,280 points, 35 ahead Poland's Hubert Kurkacz.
