Russia’s Karen Khachanov defeated incoming world number one Novak Djokovic to win his first Masters 1000 title at the Paris Masters.
The 22-year-old beat Djokovic 7-5 6-4 in one hour and 37 minutes to end the Serb’s 22-match unbeaten run.
Fourteen-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic, 31, will still overtake Rafael Nadal at the top of the world rankings on Monday.
“It means the world to me,” said world number 18 Khachanov.
Before today, the Serb had lost only one of the 32 matches he had played since the start of Wimbledon.
