World number one Novak Djokovic won his 600th ATP match on Sunday as he defeated Canadian seventh seed Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-3 to win the Paris Masters for the second straight year.

The 27-year-old Serb also extends his advantage over Roger Federer in the race for the year-ending number one spot while Raonic can take consolation that his run to the final has booked his place at the World Tour Finals in London.

Djokovic comfortably defended the crown he won last year, when he defeated David Ferrer, and where he recorded his maiden title in the French capital in 2009.

The Belgrade native also extends his indoor winning streak to 27 matches with his last defeat back in Paris two years ago.
