Andy Murray looked for the positives after he suffered a straight-sets defeat by Novak Djokovic in the Paris Masters quarter-finals.

The Scot lost 7-5 6-2 against the defending champion in one hour and 41 minutes in the French capital to end his winning run.

“The first set was tight, the second set I got up a break and lost my way a little bit,” Murray said.

“I saw some stats after we finished and as soon as the rallies got over five shots I was winning more, but the rallies that finished before five shots, I think he won 25 more points.

“That would suggest that he was serving better and I didn’t return as well as him.”

Despite the defeat, Murray has booked his place at the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London after winning three titles and playing 23 matches over the last six weeks.

He added: “It has been a positive run over the last few weeks and now I’ll get a bit of rest and ready for London.”
