Karen Khachanov is the 'real deal' after Paris Masters title, says Greg Rusedski | Tennis News |

Karen Khachanov “announced himself to the world” with victory against Novak Djokovic at the Paris Masters and confirmed himself as the “real deal”, says Greg Rusedski.

The giant Russian produced a dynamic performance full of intent in his maiden Masters 1000 final to end Djokovic’s 22-match winning run and move to the cusp of the world’s top 10 for the first time.

Khachanov had already won titles in Marseille and Moscow this season and underlined his progression in the men’s game with a nerveless performance, recovering from a break down in the first set to win 7-5 6-4 against the 14-time Grand Slam champion.
