  1. - - GAME, SET AND MATCH FERRER! 6-3 Janowicz looking a forlorn figure as he bundles the ball into the net from deep to hand Ferrer three match points at 40-0. Janowicz empties the return wide from the second serve and that is the trophy for Ferrer. A deserved victory. He falls to the ground in celebration. Superb stuff from Ferrer.

  2. - - FERRER 5-3 - Janowicz keeps the Spanish player honest with another couple of searing winners in holding serve. 11 aces for the day from Janowicz, but he will need to find a break to stay alive in this contest.

  3. - - FERRER 5-2 - A love game for Ferrer just when he needed to settle himself. Cements the break for a 5-2 lead. Difficult to see Janowicz escaping from his hole. Houdini would have bother getting out of this fix. The mental stamina required seems to be eluding the 21-year-old qualifier at the vital time. Janowicz serves to stay alive in the match.

  4. - - BREAK FERRER! 4-2 - Ferrer races out to 40-0 as the Janowicz serve begins to let him down at the key moment. Janowicz comes up with a terrific volley that contains too much cut spin for Ferrer to reach. Suddenly the Pole only 30-40 down, but he throws in another double fault at the crucial time and Ferrer has the break. From nowhere, the Spanish fourth seed truly in command of this final. Two games from the title.

  5. - - FERRER 3-2 - Janowicz pulls the trigger holding advantage on the Ferrer serve, but just misses the line. So near, yet so far. This final really warming up now. Superb defence by Ferrer to remain alive in the next point and move to advantage. Ferrer finishes off the business in hand with an ace down the tee. The Spaniard edges ahead by the odd game in five.

  6. - - BREAK FERRER 2-2 - Janowicz narrowly avoids dropping three break points down as a drop shot clips the top of the net before falling over. Amazing stuff. Janowicz forced to confront a break point on the second serve seconds later, but find his range before converting a high winning volley to claw back to deuce. The big qualifier tucks away forehand seconds later to move to advantage. But he can escape from the game as Ferrer hits back straight away. We are back on serve.

  7. - - BREAK JANOWICZ 2-1 - Lovely lob by Janowicz carries the score to deuce, but Ferrer responds with a crisp spinning drop shot to move to advantage. Another super piece of play by Janowicz sees him glide the ball down the line to claw his way back to deuce before a two-handed backhand races beyond Ferrer. Janowicz challenges a call on the baseline and gets the nod as replays show the ball was long. The Pole right back in this final with his first break of serve.

  8. - - 1-1 - Ferrer coming up with a brilliant winner on the run to move 30-0 ahead only for two big serves to bail Janowicz out a tight spot. Another ace flies beyond Ferrer to hand the Polish player game point. He escapes with another big serve down the T. That will do him nicely.

  9. - - FERRER 1-0 - Ferrer right on the front foot at the outset of this second set as he enjoys a love game to lead 1-0. Janowicz not being allowed any breathing space. Does Ferrer sense some flagging play in the set-up of the big Pole?

  10. - - SET FERRER 6-4 - Ferrer brings up his first break point which is of course a set point after challenging a call correctly. His opponent comes up with an ace down the middle to prevent Ferrer from winning the set, but a double fault presents Ferrer with the second break point. Janowicz drags the ball long from deep during a rally, and there is the break. Ferrer in command. 20 unforced errors from Janowicz compared to only six from Ferrer.

  11. - - FERRER 5-4 - Ferrer thumps a forehand into the net. Bad error to make in handing Janowicz the first chance to break in the match at 30-40, but he can't convert as his own forehand trickles into the net seconds later from the baseline. Game goes to deuce, but despite the support of the Parisian crowd, Ferrer survives the break point opportunity to lead 5-4.

  12. - - 4-4 - Janowicz winning 85 percent of first serves with Ferrer claiming 86 percent of serves on his first serve just to give you an indication of how this match is dominated by serve. The power of Janowicz evident, but Ferrer is hardly weak on the other side of the net.

  13. - - FERRER 4-3 - Ferrer's serve proving every bit as durable as his towering opponent. A love game from the Spanish player. Another game races by with another love game. Neither man having had to face a break point as yet.

  14. - - 3-3 - A few French greats of yesteryear such as Cedric Pioline and Guy Forget watchig this contest. The underdog far from nervous as he bangs down a few more of those blistering serves to lead 40-0. Misses a glorious chance on the forehand sice to cement the love game, but makes no mistakes seconds later.

  15. - - FERRER 3-2 - Fantastic stretch by Janowicz to throw his racket at the ball and get the ball back over the other side of the net. That was a quite superb effort by the big Pole to claw back to 30-15 behind. Ferrer is not deterred as a big serve down the T is too much for his opponent in closing out the game. He leads by the odd game in five.

  16. - - 2-2 - Janowicz certainly earning the support of this packed crowd. Facing a few hairy moments at 30-30, but the power again comes to the fore as he squeezes out the next two points to level up again. Don't think there are going to be too many breaks of serve in this final today.

  17. - - FERRER 2-1 - Whatever Janowicz gets from his final, he is going to have to earn it. Ferrer has a fabulous work ethic. Another comfortable hold for the world number five as Janowicz knocks the ball long from deep. And on we go. A 2-1 lead for Ferrer. Games on serve.

  18. - - 1-1 - Janowicz attacking the ball with his usual relish. Comes up with a crisp winner across court on the forehand side to move 40-15 clear before a lovely trademark little drop shot sees him restore parity at 1-1. Both men focused early on here.

  19. - - FERRER 1-0 - A love game from Ferrer to start off this final. Very efficient. How long will Janowicz take to get up to speed here on return? Was a bit sluggish in losing the first set to Tipsarevic the other day before winning 10 out of the next 12 games.

  20. 0-0 - Ferrer to serve in the opening game of the match.

  21. 13.55 - Odds for this match if you are after a bet today: Ferrer starts favourite at 6/13 with Janowicz priced at 21/10.

  22. 13.50 - Janowicz admits his life has changed in Poland due to his heroics this week. "The street next to my house actually is completely blocked. There is like about nine or 10 cars, TVs. There is no way to get to my house right now. So I think after this final I have a chance to find some really good sponsors and I will not have to worry about the money."

  23. 13.45 - "It's going to be a very difficult match because my opponent is playing very, very good," said Ferrer, who would claim a tour-best seventh title of the year with victory. "It's very important for me and for my career."

  24. 13.40 - Ferrer is the only player who is still in action this week to have also qualified for next week’s World Tour Finals. He was his usual stubborn self as he withstood a challenge from Michael Llodra in the first set of their semi-final, including seeing off a whopping 10 break points, before winning 7-5 6-3. Janowicz continued his run with a 6-4 7-5 victory over Gilles Simon in the first semi-final.

  25. 13:35 - Good afternoon and welcome to LIVE coverage of the Paris Masters final from Bercy between world number five David Ferrer and Polish qualifier Jerzy Janowicz.
