Roger Federer defeated Gilles Simon 7-6(6), 7-6(2) to win the Shanghai Rolex Masters title.

After claiming this title, Federer returned to World No. 2 in the ATP Rankings.

This is his fourth title of the season and his second ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown.

At the beggining of the week maybe Federer didn't think he was able to pulled it off as he was forced to save five match points against Leonardo Mayer in a dramatic second-round but then he picked up his game and in the semis beat NOvak Djokovic, who was on the run in China.

"It makes me very happy winning here because this tournament means a lot to me," said Federer. "I've always enjoyed coming here. I've come close a couple of times, but I've always wanted to win it as a Masters 1000.

"I feel unbelievable prestige to win this event. Especially putting my hands on the trophy for the first time is a good feeling, I must say. I'm very happy with the way I'm playing. Overall I'm just extremely happy right now."

Janowicz into Paris Masters semis

Janowicz into Paris Masters semis

Jerzy Janowicz advanced to the semis at the Paris Masters when Janko Tipsarevic retired while trailing 3-6, 6-1, 4-1.

After losing the opening set, Janowicz stepped up his game and broke Tipsarevic twice and held to love on his service game to even the match.

Tipsarevic was broken after double-faulting twice in the third game of the third set and Janowicz then held to get a 3-1 lead. He broke Tipsarevic again with a booming forehand winner for a 4-1 advantage.

Then the Serb called for a trainer as he appeared to complain of dizziness and stuck out his tongue while a trainer checked his throat.

Tipsarevic briefly continued and Janowicz was ahead 40-0 on his serve when the Serb waved his racket to indicate he was stopping.
