PARIS (AP) -- Novak Djokovic won the last four games in each set to beat defending champion David Ferrer 7-5, 7-5 Sunday in the final of the Paris Masters.

The second-seeded Serb won his 17th straight match to capture his sixth title this season.

Ferrer led 5-3 in each set, but Djokovic came back both times and clinched the victory when the Spaniard sent a forehand into the net.

Djokovic still has a slim chance to finish the season ahead of No. 1 Rafael Nadal in the rankings.
