It was the Swiss star's third tournament win of the year after Doha in January and his Basel hometown event last week.

It was also his 18th Masters title win, second only to Rafael Nadal who has won 19 times, and the 69th title of his career.

"This is the realisation of a dream for me and it's been so long that I have been waiting for it," said Federer after receiving the Paris Masters trophy from the hands of star French basketball star Tony Parker.
