The tournament’s number one seed from Serbia, never lost a set in Bercy to claim his third title. He returned the serves of seventh-seeded Milos Raonic with perfection to prevail in a one-sided affair which was a surprise given the have had played a very tight three-set match in Roland Garros quarterfinals in 2014 which is a slower surface. The indoor carpet in Paris should have provided Raonic with the necessary speed to beat Novak. However, Novak showed he is also great on indoor courts too.
