PARIS: Roger Federer is taking his battle with Novak Djokovic for the world No.1 spot down to the wire as he arrives at the Paris Masters, which begins on Monday as the hottest player on Tour. The Swiss 17-time Grand Slam winner won his 82nd career tournament and sixth title at Basel on Sunday, extending his winning streak to 12 matches and record for the year to a Tour best of 66 wins against 10 defeats. British two-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray has also hit top form coming to Paris and outlasted Spaniard Tommy Robredo on Sunday, saving five match points on the way to his third win of the season in 3 hours 20 minutes, the longest ATP final of the year.
