NOVAK Djokovic remains on course for a fifth Paris Masters title after beating Marin Cilic to set up a mouth-watering semi-final against Roger Federer.
Should he win the title on Sunday, Djokovic will equal Nadal's record of 33 Masters triumphs.
Djokovic outlasted Federer in an energy-sapping classic that lasted over three hours on Saturday, and the Serb began to look tired as he dropped serve to a fall behind early in the second set. He felt he was unable to recover sufficiently from that draining encounter.
"I didn't unfortunately. But I don't want to talk about that".
"I want to talk about how well he played all week", said Djokovic. So all the credit to him, he deserves it.
"I stepped in more inside the court", Khachanov said.
"To finish the season like this is really a dream come true", said Khachanov, who will rise to a career-high of 12th when the latest rankings are published on Monday.
"I'm still struggling. It's kind of a flu".
Djokovic broke his racket in frustration and then broke Cilic straight back, after which the momentum shifted back in his favor as Cilic lost to him for the 16th time in 18 meetings. "And this title, it's a good year-end I would say", Khachanov said. "I'm just really proud of myself that I could be in this list of winners".
Djokovic seemed agitated at times and twice turned to his box to remonstrate about an unspecified issue during the first set. In the end - 7:6, 5:7 and 7:6.

The Serb was in such an intense mood that even when he was fighting back in the second set, leading 5-2, he ended up screaming at his team, demanding to know why he hadn't received the vitamin tablets he'd asked for.
He had to save three more break points in the seventh game to hold for 4-3 down.
Federer has won this tournament only once, back in 2011, and has not played here since 2015.
"I told him my shoulder is hurting and that his uncle, or something, that he's going a bit insane", Zverev said.
He then made the most of a third break point in the third game of the second set with a running forehand victor, before holding his nerve to serve out the match.
He secured victory on his first match point when Djokovic chopped a backhand return wide. The imposing Khachanov thrust both his arms in the air and, moments later, knelt down to kiss the court.
"It's a breakthrough season, this title is a good one". "I told him to tell him to keep it down a little bit because he was going a little bit too much over the edge". "I mean, I won 20-plus matches in a row and had a most fantastic last five months of the year".
The 22-year-old Khachanov, ranked 18th, is the first Russian to win here since Nikolay Davydenko in 2006. Marat Safin won it three times before that.
He has won all of his four finals. "And he showed great quality today and he showed why we're going to see a lot of him in the future".
