Roger Federer is taking his battle with Novak Djokovic for the world No 1 spot down to the wire as he arrives at the Paris Masters, which begins on Monday, as the hottest player on the tour.

While the fight for the top place is going to the final tournaments of the season, there is also a sub-plot set to unravel with the newly refurbished Bercy Arena set to determine the final eight places for London.

The Swiss 17-time Grand Slam winner won his 82nd career tournament and sixth title at Basel on Sunday, extending his winning streak to 12 matches and record for the year to a Tour-best 66 wins against 10 defeats.
