Paris:

Sixth-seeded Marat Safin comfortably beat Radek Stepanek 6-3, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 to win a record-equalling third Paris Masters title on Sunday, putting him level with Boris Becker. The Russian sent down 16 aces against his Czech opponent, who was appearing in his first ATP final and struggled to come to terms with Safin's brutal backhand passing shots. Safin, a former US Open winner, now has 14 career titles as he heads to the Masters Cup in Houston later this month. He won the Paris Masters in 2000 and 2002, and was also a runner-up in 1999 to Andre Agassi. (AP)
