BASEL, Switzerland (AP) - Roger Federer has pulled out of the Paris Masters starting Monday to rest before the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Federer says "it's the only right decision for me'' as "it's just too much'' to play in Paris.

The top-ranked Swiss spoke after losing a 2-hour, 44-minute final against Juan Martin del Potro at the Swiss Indoors.

Federer won the Paris trophy last year. He will defend his London title the following week.
