2014 PARIS MASTERS: Djokovic Demolishes Raonic To Defend Title

As I expected, World #1 Novak Djokovic defeated Milos Raonic to win his 20th ATP Masters shield at the 2014 Paris Masters. The score in the match was 6-2 6-3 and the victory marked  Djokovic's 600th career win on the ATP Tour (Roger Federer has 991 and Rafael Nadal has 706) and his 56th win of the year (8 losses). It was Djokovic's 4th Masters 1000 title of the year, having previously won Indian Wells (d. Federer), Key Biscayne (d. Nadal) and Rome (d. Nadal)  and the first time anyone had ever defended the Paris Masters title.

The win mean's that the Serb's lead for the #1 position is now 1310 points ahead of Federer and so all he would need to do is win one match in London to seal his third year-end #1 (2011 and 2012). Djokovic has won the year-end championships the last two years without losing a match.
