Overview

World number one Novak Djokovic is only two wins away from retaining his number one ranking at least for another two weeks as he reached the quarter final of the BNP Paribas Masters beating Grigor Dimitrov 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the third round on 3 November.

In what was a tough game for the Serb, he lost the first set only to hit back later in the game to win the match with 17 winners and 29 unforced errors. Djokovic is on a 17-match winning streak at Paris with his last loss coming to Sam Querrey back in 2012 and he is the favourite to continue that unbeaten run come Friday.

His opponent Marin Cilic comes into this clash on the back of a 6-3, 7-6 victory over David Goffin in the third round on 3 November (Thursday), dominating the game from the outset.

The big serving Croatian came into this tournament with one objective on mind which is qualifying for the season ending championships and he has achieved that after winning the Swiss Indoors event in Basel along with putting on a good show at Paris. However, it looks unlikely that Cilic would beat Djokovic here, with him being the definite underdog ahead of their clash.
