Overview

Djokovic won the PNB Paribas Masters last year and the Serbian is the firm favourite to win the title on Sunday. The 27-year-old is aware that Roger Federer is no longer a threat for his World No 1 spot after the Swiss ace was knocked out by Milos Raonic in the quarter-final.

The Serbian made it to the semi-final of the tournament defeating Andy Murray in straight sets 7-5, 6-2 in the last eight of the PNB Paribas Masters on Friday. Another win on Saturday will see him make it to the finals in Paris for the second year in a row.

Nishikori, on the other hand, sealed a place in the last four defeating David Ferrer on Friday. The Japanese star had a scare as Ferrer levelled the match after winning the second set in a tiebreaker.

However, Nishikori managed to bounce back and won the match 6-3, 6-7, 6-4. He had to fight hard to win in all the matches played in this year's PNB Paribas Masters and Nishikori would be aware that he would be expecting another tough clash when he takes on Djokovic on Saturday.
