World number one Novak Djokovic secured his 10th title of the year with an emphatic victory over Britain's Andy Murray at the Paris Masters final.

The 6-2 6-4 win, achieved in just over 90 minutes, also ensured the Serb, 28, claimed his fourth Paris Masters title.

He is the first player to win six ATP Masters series events in the same year.

Murray, 28, made too many unforced errors against an in-form Djokovic, who has now beaten him in six of their seven encounters this year.

The Briton competed better than he did in Shanghai in October against Djokovic - when he was on the end of a 6-1 6-3 rout in the semi-finals - but he was still unable to break the hold the Serb seemingly has over him.

"It's progress," said Murray of reaching his first Paris Masters final. "We'll try next year to go one better.

"Congratulations to Novak for another fantastic week. He fully deserves the number one spot. Hopefully I can get a bit closer next year."
