Sixteen-time grand slam winner Roger Federer won his first Paris Masters title with a 6-1 7-6 (7-3) victory over Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The world number four is now unbeaten in 12 matches and looks confident for the upcoming season-ending finals at the O2 Arena, London.

The 30-year-old saw off two break points in the very first game of the match to cruise through the first set 6-1.

However, local-favorite Tsonga fought back in the second and thought he had broken Federer at 4-3, only for the call to be reversed. Federer came back and took the set to a tie-breaker, in which he surged into a 4-0 lead.

With the Swiss on a match point, Tsonga sent his forehand long.

The match lasted an hour and 25 minutes.  

It was Federer's 18th Masters title, and his 69th tournament success.
