Marin Cilic is keen to book his spot at the ATP Finals after seeing off Grigor Dimitrov in the Paris Masters on Thursday.
Cilic is on the verge of securing a place in the season-ending showpiece in London after downing Bulgarian Dimitrov in straight sets in the French capital, with the world number seven winning 7-6(7-5) 6-4 in one hour and 51 minutes on Thursday.

The Croatian will come up against Novak Djokovic in the next round and in all likelihood he will be involved in London even if he loses out to the soon-to-be world number one but Cilic is taking nothing for granted and is desperate to come out on top on Friday.
“I am very close to London, to securing my spot mathematically,” He said, as reported by Sky Sports. “In the next match against Novak it will be another big challenge. (It will be) great to play him again.”
The ATP Finals take place from November 11-18, while Cilic is also a member of the Croatia team who will face France in the Davis Cup final at the end of this month.
