Novak Djokovic avenged his US Open final defeat to Daniil Medvedev by beating the Russian to the Paris Masters final.

Medvedev denied Djokovic a histpric calendar Grand Slam in New York, defeating him in straight sets.

Djokovic stepped back from the ATP Tour for a spell to recover, making his return in the French capital.

The pair, who were the top two seeds for the tournament, met again in Sunday’s final, with Djokovic scoring the 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 win.

“It was a nice feeling for me today because I played with all my family and children behind me,” Djokovic said after the match.

“[It was] very special. What beautiful smiles. I love you.

“Daniil, congratulations to you and your team. I suffered a lot as well. I suffered in New York also. There’s a rivalry on the run here and I appreciate.”

It was Djokovic’c 37th Masters title – a number no other player can match – and sets him up nicely for the ATP Finals in Turin later this month.
