Lawn Tennis world star, Djokovic in-form, eases past Sousa in Paris Open
Novak Djokovic’s dream of clinching world number one spot of the season-ending saw more light with his 7-5 6-1 victory over Portuguese qualifier Joao Sousa in the second round of the Paris Masters on Tuesday.
The world number two in the game of tennis, Djokovic, who had received a first-round bye, broke his opponent’s serve four times to extend his winning run to 19 matches.
The 31-year-old who hails from Serbia has been at his best this season with Grand Slam wins at Wimbledon and the U.S Open, along with ATP Masters triumphs in Cincinnati and Shanghai.
If Djokovic must surpass top-ranked Rafa Nadal when the next editions of the ATP rankings are released on Monday, he must outlast the Spaniard in the French capital this week.
