Djokovic triumphs thriller over Federer in Paris Masters semifinals

Novak Djokovic just beat Roger Federer in one of the best tennis matches you'll see all year

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will face off each other for the 47th time in career on Saturday at the Rolex Paris Masters.

Russia's Karen Khachanov stunned incoming world number one Serbia's Novak Djokovic 7-5,6-4 to lift the Paris Masters title here on Sunday.

Although Djokovic broke in the fourth game to move 3-1 up and then led 30-0 on serve, the unseeded Khachanov broke him straight back and the momentum abruptly shifted away from Djokovic.

It was the 4th successive win for Djokovic over Federer, and the Serb will play against Russia's Karen Khachanov.

Djokovic was a firm favourite to match Rafael Nadal's record tally of 33 ATP Masters 1000 titles, but Khachanov outlined his promise by coming from a break down to secure a 7-5 6-4 victory.

Earning his fourth straight win over a top-10 player this week, Khachanov, whose muscular game resembles that of his childhood hero Marat Safin, a Russian three-times victor in Paris, picked up the biggest title of his burgeoning career. At the end of a one-sided first set, he complained to Khachanov about the over-zealous reactions of the Russian's camp at courtside.

Earlier, Khachanov continued his strong recent form by beating Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-1. "And maybe I'm not crying, but still I'm really happy". The 22-year-old Russian entered Paris with a 3-16 record against Top 10 opponents.

He then made the most of a third break point in the third game of the second set with a running forehand victor, before holding his nerve to serve out the match. "I'm just happy that match by match I'm just increasing the level of the game", he added.

"I won the match, but if he would've won it, it would've been absolutely deserved".

"I don't want to talk about that". So all the credit to him. Federer hit his second double fault of the match as he collapsed in the tie-break, allowing Djokovic to take the win when Federer netted a forehand.

"Reflecting on what I've been through in the past year, it's quite a phenomenal achievement", said Djokovic who will face Marin Cilic for a spot in the semi-finals.

"It was a spectacular match", Djokovic told Sky Sports.

Khachanov, who won almost 70 per cent of points on serve on Saturday, will rise to world number 11 if he wins Sunday's final. "So as I said, I can't be too ecstatic about it".

"He deserves his trophy and I am sure we will see a lot of great matches from him in the future".
