Djokovic cruises past Coric to win fourth Shanghai title

Federer finished the match with 10 aces and landed an impressive 71 percent of his first serves. "I got off to a bad start in both sets".

"We will see I am planning to play Paris and London and maybe another tournament before then".

Coric, who has only two career titles to his name, has now beaten Federer twice - the previous time was in the final at Halle this year. The Croat defeated Matthew Ebden 7-5, 6-4.

And Coric, a semi-final victor against Roger Federer, lost all composure at the start of the second, sending a simple volley well wide of an open court to hand Djokovic another break.

Djokovic's serve has not been broken this week in 37 service games. "I've always played him when he's playing well, but I'll hope I can take it to him".

The veteran turned back the clock and reached the final of Fever-Tree Championships before rallying against the odds to win the Wimbledon title.

"Obviously it's great to finally officially make it and obviously be part of the eight best again, which is an elite group, which is kind of the goal for everyone at the beginning of the season", Zverev said.

Djokovic was ranked as low as world number 22 in June after a series of disappointing results.

The first lady also stopped at a site where ivory burns take place - a conservationist effort meant to discourage the ivory trade. A year ago he appeared to refer to a non-existent country called "Nambia" in a speech to ambassadors from the continent.


However, he ran into an unstoppable Djokovic, who wrapped up a straight-sets victory for his 18th win on the trot and his 72nd career title.

"I did everything I meant to do on my end", Djokovic said.

"I feel like I'm explosive out there, returning well", he added.

"But also, he has improved a lot, and he has established himself as a top player". Djokovic didn't give the South African another opportunity.

Djokovic did not face a break point en route to a 59-minute victory as he extended his winning streak to 17 ATP matches.

"This was definitely one of the best serving weeks that I have had".

"I want to congratulate Borna and his team".

The 21-year-old looked to be becoming increasingly frustrated by Djokovic's ability to consistently return even the most measured shots, although he stood his ground in a marathon third game.
