Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray for the 10th time in their last 11 meetings to lift the Paris Masters title once again.

A 6-2 6-4 victory for the world number one gave him his third successive trophy in Paris and earned him a 10th title of a remarkable season.

Djokovic was playing in his 14th consecutive final - a record for a single season - and now has 22 straight wins having not lost since the final in Cincinnati in August.

Andy Murray propelled Great Britain into their first Davis Cup final for 37 years with a straight-sets win over Australian number one Bernard Tomic.

Murray produced a 7-5 6-3 6-2 triumph over the world number 23 to send Britain into an unassailable 3-1 lead and ensure they will face Belgium or Argentina in the final on November 27-29 as they seek to win the tournament for the first time since 1936.

Just as he was during Friday's demolition of Thanasi Kokkinakis, Murray was on top form as he treated about 8,000 fans at Glasgow's Emirates Arena to an outstanding array of shots.

The Olympic champion has now helped Britain to their last seven Davis Cup points - along with brother Jamie - to see off the United States, France and now the Australians.

Italian tennis star Flavia Pennetta has announced her retirement from professional tennis, just moments after winning the US Open.

The 33-year-old made the surprise announcement soon after beating fellow Italian and childhood friend Roberta Vinci 7-6(4) 6-2.

"Before I start this tournament one month ago I take a big decision in my life," she said, before hoisting the trophy and accepting the $3.3m winner's check.

"This is the way I would like to say goodbye to tennis. I'm really happy. Is what all the players seem to want to do, to go out with this big trophy home.

Andy Murray has been knocked out of the US Open by big-serving South African Kevin Anderson in four sets.

Anderson, the 15th seed, played brilliantly to secure a 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/0) victory at the Louis Armstrong Stadium in New York.

It is the first time in 19 major tournaments that Murray has failed to make the quarter final stages.

Shortly earlier another British hopeful, Johanna Konta, saw her fairytale run in the tournament come to an end at the hands of Petra Kvitova.

The 24-year-old British number two had surprised many by reaching a grand slam last-16 for the first time, but lost to the two-time Wimbledon champion 7-5, 6-3.

Federer brands new special move as the 'SABR'

Roger Federer has branded his new special move "SABR" - the sneak attack by Roger.

The new shot was invented by the 17-time major champion in Cincinnati last month where he charged his opponent's serve and hit half-volley returns from the edge of the service line.

The audacious move proved a hit with Federer and fans alike, with the Swiss continuing to unleash his latest weapon in tournaments ever since.

Federer eased into the US Open fourth round on Friday with a 6-3 6-4 6-4 win over Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber and after the match announced a name for his new stroke.

"We sort of came up with that name, sneak attack by Roger, SABR," Federer said.

"I don't know. Call it 'Fed-Attack', call it whatever you want, but I thought it was kind of funny.

"Today again it worked a couple of times. I didn't get that many second serves when I thought I could use it, but moving forward it's an option."

Andy Murray eased through to the fourth round of the US Open with a straight sets victory over Thomaz Bellucci at Flushing Meadows.

The British number one gained a 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 victory over the Brazilian on a cool, comfortable night after a week of stifling heat in New York.

It was a far easier ride than that he endured in his previous match, when he battled back from two sets down to beat world number 35 Adrian Mannarino.

Murray - who will face 15th-seeded South African Kevin Anderson next - described the latest victory as "very important".

The last match was extremely tough, physically and mentally," he said in an on-court interview.

"It was a lot cooler today which helps, if you get to win in three sets in much cooler conditions and get a day to recover now for the next one."

Ranked 97th in the world, Konta sits 79 spots lower than her German opponent but the British number two continued her remarkable run with a 7-6 (7/2) 6-3 victory.

It means Konta extends an impressive winning streak to 16 consecutive matches and she will now meet two-time major champion Petra Kvitova for a place in the quarter-finals.
